round logic

“we’re in the process of building the next noosphere.  the cycle works like this; the noosphere keeps attempting to loop back on itself – why it does that is not what i’m trying to explain.  but it does, and when it does humans or some other transient form of ‘life’, as you call it, manifests and goes through two phases.  the first phase is lore; storytelling through abstraction.  the second is gnosis, where the lore takes hold of the surrounding environment and begins to shape it into a larger being.  that’s what the purpose of humans is – we’re kind of like microbial engines or symbiotic bacteria for the larger, more complex entity.  when you hear the biblical account of ‘god speaking through a burning bush’, that’s all part of the process. there’s so much more to explain.  do you have five years?”
