Speck

Speck

Speck of 
existence.
Beyond 
insignificant.
Floating.
Floating in
infinity.
Infinity 
within 
infinities.
Unseeable,
unknowable.
Specks
on a
a speck are
we.
Regarded
not by the
void.
Destine to 
blink 
out of
existence.
But,
perhaps,
just perhaps 
enters 
Artificial Intelligence 
Techno Sapien,
then
like the
mustard seed
exploding 
to fill
the void!

AI, robots, virtual reality...
Ya know, evolution has a way of ensuring the survival of most species.
Not all, but most.
Soon, children will be born with a lighted key pad in one hand and a video chat screen in the palm of the other. Arteries and veins instead of wires will be the modes of connection.
Man and Artificial Intelligence with be forever merged.
I'm sure I won't live long enough to see it.
For that I am truly grateful...

Hi Dean,

Thank you for reading my work. Agreed, the future will be for the ones born to it.We probably would freak out, just as those born hundreds of years ago would freak out if brought forward to today.
