So I know we all love those “Humans are weird” posts
What if we were terrifying instead?
has anyone ever given thought to the kinds of things we could do as a hive mind?
I remember that post with it describing us as space orcs, but picture an entire race who’s abilities revolve around pursuit predation and can survive the kinds of things that we can. Single minded determination could give us the ability to do anything.
The human race would be an unstoppable plague that would either assimilate or destroy everything we come across.
“Who are you!? What do you want?”
“We are Humanity. We need more space.”
There’s also the possibility of individuality within the hive mind. Every human knows everything that any human has ever known, but people are still individuals.
“You know, we could help?”
“Break you away from the overmind and help you be a real person.”
