Existential Risk

The Grand Filter, revealed

Such a simple thing
Shrouded in complexity
Lives the Great Filter

Hypothesis fails
Existential Risk is now
Pulsing within us

No plan averts it
No outside force can compete
Why would it need to

Systemic failure
Progress is found within us
Waiting in locked rooms

To overcome risk
Pick biological lock
Overcome oneself

To talk of all else
Such cerebral distraction
Grand Filter working

Asteroids pass us
The universe testifies
All its grand silence

Answers lie within
Shrouded by speculations
Perfect camouflage
