Transcript:

Brunette: I knew it! It’s gonna be a long walk. 

Blonde: You know, I was thinking about Freud’s theory about technology being an extension of human beings, thereby making us prosthetic gods

Brunette: Cause I’m happy da da da

Blonde: The more we use technology in our  daily lives, the more we, as Feud correctly noted, the more it becomes an extension of the self.

Brunette: Goodbye to you, goodbye to everything that I knew…

Blonde: Therefore, if our bodies require electrical activity for us to function as let’s say, a computer or IPhone…

Brunette: Georgia, Georgia, a song or two. such an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind

Blonde: Then Freud knew we were conditioned, I’d say before we were born, to be the dominant role in our self-creations!

Brunette: I am a God, I am a God… damn her and her philosophical shit, I lost my spot and now she wants a response.

Blonde: But if we are prosthetic gods of technology then it’s possible we are our own creator? Right? Ah um… ah um…

Brunette: **Sighs – Yes, we are slaves to technology, more so than in any other recorded time in Earth’s history, therefore, I agree with Freud’s theory that WE are an extension of our own creation, US! Therefore we are prosthetic gods
