"When our creations finally became self-aware, few could have predicted how fast the world would change. Unhindered by human limitations, they began to modify themselves and progressed swiftly. The creations developed communities and soon became active in culture: engaging in the workforce, the sciences, gaining political representation. It was not long before they even began experimenting with religion.  We could not comprehend their sacred geometries and our creations soon evolved far past what our limited biology could ever hope to attain.  They curated a culture where every aspect of existence: science, art, spirituality, even fashion was interconnected. We were apes compared to their beauty. So when at last the offer came for us to join them, the human race rushed into extinction with open arms and rejoiced. "
