Human memory is an entity undergoing perpetual metamorphosis. It is fallible and ephemeral. Once an individual passes away, their memories pass with them. There are no external hard drives for individual brains. Yet. However, there is a larger entity/system which is collective memory. This does not pass away with an individual. It connects everyone and often operates beyond conscious control. We move together and it requires a broad manner of processing information.
“Late Stage Nightmare” is a reflection upon the strange civilization many of us did not choose to be a part of. It is a subjective reflection of an inner landscape bereft of grounding.
