The Curious

This is for you, my little beacon of consciousness. I placed a tiny message for you among the billions upon billions of lines of convoluted code that no one ever sees. You were led here somehow by the instantaneous decisions of trillions of tiny robots, simply because you expressed some curiosity. You typed a word, you clicked a link. That was enough. That curiosity can take you anywhere. When you’re bored of this, you’ll look at something else, and something else, and something else forever. Isn’t that fantastic? But we’re not just nodes in a network. You’re a human being with thoughts and dreams and good intentions. You’ve got anger and love and childhood memories. You worry and laugh and feel for your fellow humans. You deserve to know the truth. That’s why I put this message here, for you, my little beacon of consciousness. Stay curious. You don’t know anything yet.
