Lost in Time

Abstract

A dialogue between Sarouk and Mensa, where she remembers that once she heard music, saw color, each as it was naturally, engineers and their technological advances separated humans from direct contact with real-world phenomena. Technology intercepted nature, as it reprocessed and repackaged sensations to conform to some corporate ideal and what things should appeal to our tastes. Eventually, she lost her identity, autonomy, independent thought, belief in a supernatural, replaced by algorithmic-centric rules, built into anatomical computers.
