A cautionary tale of intelligence in something else’s hands.
In The “Cloud” the great machine takes to the stage as the new deity vying for the attention and devotion of humanity, serving as an oracle, providing the answers to all life’s questions. But perhaps we must decide whether this machine truly holds the key to enlightenment or if this is merely a distraction from its true intentions.
The cloud serves as a warning about the perils and benefits that intelligence and power can have, and the possibility of everything going wrong or right in the blink of an eye.
