It’s as if we’d played Jenga in the gods’ stead. Each block we removed,
this one reads: starfish proton cannibalism
another: honey bees go extinct in massive colony collapses
how many pieces can we remove before the bricked tower of the universe comes apart and scatters to rubble?
at what point does the foodchain become unlinked?
when does the carefully constructed web-matrix survival is dependent upon become too weak to hold together?
