Chip music combined with more traditional instrumentation. Songs that are half man, half machine.
For centuries, we had watched the body of water adjacent to our small town. Eventually, rumors of a new life form growing beneath its murky surface had begun to run rampant. Some said that, when the time was right, it would make itself seen. The Creature’s hypothesized description was astounding: a body made made of flesh. This idea was completely foreign to a civilization like ours, as our bodies weren’t composed of organic materials. Instead they were carefully composed of the circuits, transistors and various bits of technology that had driven our people towards a bright and efficient future.
Upon first sight, the creature appeared abhorrent. It slowly crawled along the shore, leaving a sticky trail behind. In time, we gathered our courage and approached the Creature. We wiped the viscous fluid away from its thickly covered body, and only then did the Creature from the pond seem much less alien. It had two legs, two arms and two eyes. As it opened its mouth, a startling sound escaped it. This sound (twenty years later) would be referred to as “crying.”
In time, the Creature eventually became classified as human. We tended to its needs in an attempt to make it as happy as possible. We noticed that it grew in ways we never thought imaginable. We machines found it hard to comprehend that the human body had an ability to become larger without outside intervention. One of its more fascinating features was the scraggly hair that hung from its face some 40 years after its discovery.
80 years since birth had passed. The human lay still on the ground as we observed his final moments. His eyes became vacant and his breath more jagged. When his chest fell for what should have been the final time, we turned to one another after already reaching a unanimous conclusion: we can save him. He can live forever.
300 years after birth, the Creature could no longer be referred to as human. He had a mixed physiology: half man, half machine. His heart now beat at 60 cycles per minute. His muscles were powered by a stronger energy source. His eyes could see past a physical reality and into unknown dimensions. We no longer feared his death, but instead celebrated his second birth.
