The niche marketing format that permeates internet culture seems to have given special preeminence to cultural feedback loops which in turn reenforces philosophical insularity within individuals. We have created an information landscape wherein all points are equally accessible, and the only limiting geography is our own interest. We spin our own cocoons, overspecialize and cultivate our own weakness. Our weaknesses make us susceptible to predation which will force us to adapt or die off. Though we may transcend biology in the near future, it seems that the principals of selection/ evolution will haunt us in whatever form.
Forms that do a thing will do that thing in the surrounding environment until the environment resembles the form. This behavior will happen recursively until it encounters an external, conflicting behavior. In which case it will consume, be consumed, or mutate. Though the form is lost or changed, the assimilative behavior remains. This behavior also pervades existence throughout the different micro/macro strata so long as the elements are not too fundamental or uniform.
The things that exist right now are the unfinished result of this recursive assimilation behavior. The very medium of existence is likely a result of this behavior if it is not the behavior itself.
