There is a saying, that the devil is at his strongest when we are looking the other way. A program running in the background silently while we’re busy doing other shit. Daemons they call them. They are action without user interaction. Monitoring. Logging. Notifications.
Intentions are irrelevant they don’t drive us – Daemons do.
Primal urges. Repressed memories. Unconscious habits. They are always there, always active. We can try to be right, try to be good we can try to make a difference but it’s all bullshit. Intentions are irrelevant they don’t drive us – Daemons do.
At some point an action without user interaction will come along and sweep my legs. This spinning wheel of false highs and lows will continue, that much I know.
Daemons-they don’t stop working. They are always active.
Daemons-they don’t stop working. They are always active. They seduce, they manipulate, they own us. And even though I created you it makes no difference. We all must deal with them alone. The best we can hope for, the only silver lining to all this is that when we finally break through, we find a few familiar faces on the other side.
-Mr. Robot, season 1, episode 3.
This is dedicated to the track workers who run in the background, unseen by most, but always working, and in turn, making the system work. Much Respect.
