"I think human consciousness

was a tragic misstep
in evolution.
We became too self-aware.
Nature created
an aspect of nature
separate from itself.
We are creatures that should
not exist by natural law.

We are things that labor
under the illusion
of having a self,
this accretion of sensory
experience and feeling,
programmed with total assurance
that we are each somebody
when, in fact,
everybody's nobody.

I think the honorable
thing for species to do
is deny our programming,
stop reproducing,
walk hand in hand
into extinction,
one last midnight,
brothers and sisters
opting out of a raw deal."
(True Detective S01 E01)
