Michael John Grist. Everywhere we go, we build.
We leave ruins of our lives and culture behind like the cast-off skins of snakes, so that when we die, these cast-offs live on beyond us. They become monuments to us and what we were. They accumulate like coral, each generation laying down a new layer of cultural sediment for the next generation to live upon, above, around. Retronaut. Retro Thing.
