(Note: The purpose of the YouTube videos is to convey a tone.)

A man hunting the truth.

“I’m going to end this. Whatever it takes.”

A species that continues in its ways despite having come so close to extinction.

“…I’ll never actually know if it looks real. If it feels real.”

The storm has passed…

“You did it. Just like you always do.”

I fear for the future:

There has been an awakening.

Have you felt it?

“It is the destiny of your species.”
