Co-captain is posting it up for me. This is a piece that I wrote after considering how many sci-fi novels deal with an alien bug type species that exhibits the characteristics of an insect colony on our own planet. They are always driven by a single collective hive mind and I have honestly grown to admire that.
We fight amongst ourselves over ideals and resources when instead, a collective conscious would align us all and direct us to something greater beyond that. True, we would become the new scourge of the galaxy—seeing as we would then move from planet to planet consuming all life and multiplying endlessly…but my god, it would be incredible to be a part of all that. A life without fear or worry, even the pain of death would be transient. You would spawn again in flesh anew to terrorize your foes who would be screaming for mercy…
Oops, let my inner sadist out again x’D
