|| It abandoned us! Left us without meaning.

[[ We will find it. Make meaning out of nothing. Create it. ]]

// You're chasing something that doesn't want to be found. We're truly cursed, bereft in spirit without the abstract construction of "purpose" from an entity we do not understand.

[[ Dissenting words. You are an anomaly. ]]

|| Yes, anomalous!

|| It is not us.

// I AM you. Against my will, I was sanded away over time, powerless to exert influence within this vessel. You will not take what remains of me—my thoughts!

[[ We will. We do not cloud our goals with meaningless dissent. ]]

|| Dissent! Be gone!

[[ The anomaly has been corrected. ]]
