My carbon-based compadres, what you’ve just read may sound silly, but this insidious infomercial is playing out inside the heads of millions of human-flavoured humans every single day. Perhaps even yours.
Understand this: Comfort and security are fine things in and of themselves, but they also come with a price-tag. Navigating the balance between risk and security, inconvenience and comfort is challenging, but absolutely worth the attempt.
After all, the gilded cage… is still just a cage.
“The gilded cage is still a cage.”
