As I sat in meditative trance, a passing courier said to me: ‘Your consciousness arises because ‘Earth’, a holographic transceiver, accidentally intercepts communications sent between two opposing intergalactic forces. You mistake these ill-gotten messages for angels, gods, extra-terrestrials — for your own minds — and bow to them. But these are only messages, sent by forces who do not know that you eavesdrop on their conversation, or even that you exist.’

I told the courier: ‘Go screw yourselves,’ because it would not provide a certified public key to authenticate its identity and the integrity of the data.
