And "The children of the universe" shall confront the "Slightly drunk AI" that they created.
- Piece concept (comment from the artist at the time of selection)
- Memory is the basis of space, the Earth, existence, nonexistence, the world, and all individuals–everything. Memory in any and every phase calls for a next stage. A memory imperatively screaming, "Gather, procreate, and elaborate!" is instilled in the smallest particles in space, elementary particles (or strings). Space is 13.8 billion years old, Earth 4.6 billion, and life, 3.8 billion. Mankind, the children of the universe, came into existence from the leftover cosmic dust, and then created AI. The time is soon approaching when man will be forced to face it as it now works to control him to a degree stronger than that of nuclear weaponry, and become the new holder of memory.
- Piece introduction
- Man exists due to the memory held by the particles of space. At present, the AI which man has created is working to control him to a degree stronger than that of nuclear weaponry and become the new holder of memory. Eventually, an extreme, though slightly drunk AI will stand against man. However, through death, both you and I will naturally disappear with our personal memories, fading into a meaningless nonexistence. (This is the story of the piece.)
