Every single monster there ever was has been a human being. Man is the monster. All our crimes, all our sins. We want to reject them. Imagine, a whole planet full of codependents, people who don't want to admit the great shame of stamping on existence, denying our oneness. Humanity, a giant phalanx against the guilt of being so separate. Humanity, infernal orchid from void.
A little time cube joke to break the ice, maybe.
