perception’s toolbox of technologies comes standard.
it’s hard-wired into sentient ‘be’-ings.
but ‘personal’ applications of those technologies, with the ensuing explanations, meanings and beliefs about objects/events perceived, are wholly acquired.
these acquisitions, imports from social consensus via parents, education, church and state, constitute the software called self.
don’t ask me how, but unclouded apperception of this phenomenon inserts a terminal virus into the hardware.
meltdown is immanent and inescapable.
