We are all born as animals and live the life that animals live: we sleep, eat, reproduce, and fight. There is, however, another order of living, which the animals do not know, that of awe before the mystery of being ... that can be the root and branch of the spiritual sense of one’s days. That is the birth - the Virgin Birth - in the heart of a properly human, spiritual life.

-- Joseph Campbell


And speaking of sex, the Immaculate Conception does not mean Jesus was conceived in the absence of sex. It means Mary was conceived without Original Sin. That's all it has ever meant. And according to the tabloids, Mary is apparently the only one who can make such a claim. The Jesus thing is called virgin birth.

-- George Carlin


Follow two unhumans, a robot and a squid, as they begin the vast expansion of humanity into the solar system. In 2070, a squid and a teddy bear set off into the depths of the solar system. Following the whims of their posthuman masters, they will seed the system with thought and mind, ready for the coming of man.


Their own plans, they keep quiet, as the good ship Worrying Noise crosses the decade. In the meantime, humanity begins to hear the choir of voices from the rest of the universe resonate. Along the way, they will seed Sol with new forms of life, ready to meet the posthumans that will follow them. Along the way, they will witness the beginning of the Dream, and the creation of a new immortal.
