Quantum

The gas chambers smoke;
Production capacity maximized.
The leader leads;
The laborer labors, skilled or unskilled;
The capitalist risks for profit.

 

The mathematical-scientific-technological

Teaches me to manipulate, exploit

Resources more efficiently, effectively.
And a human being is a resource;
Standing reserve, homo sapien.

 

Like Hitler, Napoleon, Caesar, Alexander;
Must... acquire... capital.
Aggressively, proactively reinvesting
In an effort to acquire more capital;
A cycle of capital acquisition that
Perpetuates itself indefinitely.
Reason for existing?


Survive and procreate; contribute

To the perpetuation of the species.

Participate in the labor market;

Or risk for profit, entrepreneurial.

 

As nuclear fusion continues
Unabated in the core of the nearest
Star through its fifth billion year.
