Exploited even our own brain cells

Instead of realising, revering, and worshipping the power of neural networks and of human thought, we turned machine learning into an industry and drove it into profitable form.

Instead of spending our days in wonder of our own magic, we chase jobs and the ability to produce goods and services ever faster.

And, while we question the ethics of cryptocurrencies, we only stand by and ask whether this newfound paradigm of data processing - wisdom? - is fair and impartial. Never whether it is exploiting our own incredible nature as human beings.

Perhaps we are lost to ourselves for good?
