Fabla Collective: Copernican theory

Time is ticking, and humanity gambles with it insolently. In our blind devotion to profit, we wage war on nature, inviting in a true apocalypse. The days of peace are a distant memory for many, if they ever existed at all.

Back in the 16th century, Copernicus reminded us that the world does not revolve around us. But instead of accepting our rightful place in this infinite cosmic game, capitalism has kept us spellbound with an illusion that we are in control.

Within the chaos, we give birth to new heliocentric visions, where everyone is a star of their own, shining alone. We turn inwards and seek to find calm by understanding our identity. But our perception of self is inevitably intertwined with social norms. We lose ourselves in trying to conform to ideals that are not necessarily our own. So we are split, like atoms that cannot bind into a molecule strong enough to redesign the social fabric.

Time is almost up. But sometimes, out of the darkest hour, a whole new universe is born.
