First, there was the planet.
Much much much much much later
Came the humans.
Later still, the humans made the machines
Gradually (was it gradually?)
the humans became enslaved to the machines
Humans apparently exist to serve the machines
(many humans have become machines)
The machines have enthralled & enslaved us
“Modern man, the world eater, respects no space and no thing green or furred as sacred. The march of the machines has entered his blood.” ~ Loren Eisley, anthropologist
