A name in the machine

This progression of events in the world, the inexorable flow of time that each of us is caught in and cannot escape. An intricately connected chain of cause and effect, beginning and ending as beings interact.

What is the voice, the message, the name that is in the world? Who is this one in the world who is speaking of the world, knowing only the world.

We are strangers.

They create an account for you on their server. You are given a name in the world in the mind of the machine.

The image takes on life.
