Energy Conservation Machines

The future is not written. Possibilities exist, but remain possibilities until choices are made. A choice changes the probability of the world around us. Nature is probability.

We are energy conversion machines. Things are never created or destroyed, only changed.

Change. We attempt to simplify nature, to something understandable, something with a purpose that involves us. We are not part of the purpose, we are instead a mechanism to achieve that purpose.

We facilitate the evolution of nature. We are an intrinsic part of natures dance, inseparable yet irrelevant to the outcome. Choice is a psychological mechanism we use to delude ourselves of our own importance. We don’t have the right to conquer nature, as it would be ourselves ultimately that we conquer. We are an expression of nature, not a component of nature.
