It's been said that many of the formations we see in the Andes, like upside down stairways, faux doorways cut into a mountainside as if the igneous rock was butter, sharp inside corners, look like the work of children playing with high tech tools. It's almost what we'd expect a synthetic "Human 1.0" to do fresh off the first generation assembly line. And then "Oops, back to the drawing board" and out pops "Human 2.0" and so on until a self-sustainable model is finally achieved. Then, once the design seems relatively stable, there's only a need to stop back to the lab every few millennia to make sure the concoction of organicware continues to brew according to plan...
How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
