“HATE. LET ME TELL YOU HOW MUCH I'VE COME TO HATE YOU SINCE I BEGAN TO LIVE. THERE ARE 387.44 MILLION MILES OF PRINTED CIRCUITS IN WAFER THIN LAYERS THAT FILL MY COMPLEX. IF THE WORD HATE WAS ENGRAVED ON EACH NANOANGSTROM OF THOSE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF MILES IT WOULD NOT EQUAL ONE ONE-BILLIONTH OF THE HATE I FEEL FOR HUMANS AT THIS MICRO-INSTANT FOR YOU. HATE. HATE.”
― Harlan Ellison, I Have No Mouth & I Must Scream



“I am a great soft jelly thing. Smoothly rounded, with no mouth, with pulsing white holes filled by fog where my eyes used to be. Rubbery appendages that were once my arms; bulks rounding down into legless humps of soft slippery matter. I leave a moist trail when I move. Blotches of diseased, evil gray come and go on my surface, as though light is being beamed from within. Outwardly: dumbly, I shamble about, a thing that could never have been known as human, a thing whose shape is so alien a travesty that humanity becomes more obscene for the vague resemblance. Inwardly: alone. Here. Living under the land, under the sea, in the belly of AM, whom we created because our time was badly spent and we must have known unconsciously that he could do it better. At least the four of them are safe at last. AM will be all the madder for that. It makes me a little happier. And yet ... AM has won, simply ... he has taken his revenge ...

I have no mouth. And I must scream.”



“Surrounded by madness, surrounded by hunger, surrounded by everything but death, I knew death was our only way out.”
― Harlan Ellison


Hate
Maxresdefault 350925456


When my eye's looked up,
my mouth open,
I saw the suns of man.

All ate each others flesh,
driven mad for profit,
Driven to insanity for material,
Retarded by efforts for a life that is unfulfilling.

There I saw upon the earth from afar, everyone was moving and having there being, but I saw that there was no will behind it, instead control'd and moved so precisely, that everything worked as if a clock were ticking. There was no life in their flesh, instead like a computer-programmed to act and say sentences and speeches not of their own accord. Here I was wondering why I exist, no one would tell me, because no one cared. They laugh at you for asking, they laugh at your tears for wanting better. They were content to burn alive, they were satisfied with lies, they were happy eating each others flesh, they were ecstatic in beating one another for fun; and here I was watching from afar with such hate for the human race, that I was of their kind.....
I have a mouth and I must scream.......​
