I want to be more than a survivor in a dog eat dog world.
I want to be more than a sheepish, cowering herd animal.
I want to be more than a rat in some mad scientist’s maze.
I want to be more than just another link in the food chain.
I want to be more than a wild animal primed to fight, flee, or freeze.
I want to be more that a bundle of primitive reflexes.
To that end, I refuse to accept a universe so cruel that it would grant me such aspirations without also providing me the means for achieving them… or at least the chance to find meaning in the trying.
And so, I begin my quest for such transcendence by declaring such an opportunity to be not just a scientific possibility, but by declaring its pursuit to be a moral necessity.
