Species death like this is nothing more than a shift in the aggregate psychic agenda. In ages past the beast in man was hidden in the dark, disavowed.

Technology turned up the lights and now there's no getting away from the fact: The beast is redundant. It's been us all along."

Deliberately evoking the anti-slavery tract of Darwin's Wedgwood forbears, the sign read:"Am I a Man and a Brother?"

Author: Richard Francis Burton
