There was a moment… I know when I was under in the dark that something… whatever I’d been reduced to, you know, not even consciousness. It was a vague awareness in the dark, and I could… I could feel my definitions fading. And beneath that darkness, there was another kind. It was… it was deeper, warm, you know, like a substance.

Rust:  I think human consciousness is 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; an accretion of sensory, experience and feeling, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everybody is nobody. Maybe the honorable thing for our 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.
