Comprised Of Millions Of Individuals

"You all underestimate humans. Individually, they may appear weak, but that is not the case. What we need to recognize is that humans are a single life-form comprised of millions of individuals. Besides their individual brains, humans possess a different "brain" of enormous magnitude. The moment we act in opposition to that brain, we will lose."

-Tamura Reiko

All Lives On Earth

 “Flies know how to fly without being taught. Spiders know how to spin webs without being taught. Why is that? Here’s what I think: Flies and spiders are simply following an order. I believe all lives on Earth have received orders of some kind. Don’t humans have any directive? When I took over this human’s brain, I received a directive. It said, Devour this species.”

– Ryoko Tamiya
