"I don't want to be human. I want to see gamma rays, I want to hear x-rays, and I, I want to, I want to smell dark matter. Do you see the absurdity of what I am? I can't even express these things properly, because I have to, I have to conceptualize complex ideas in this stupid, limiting spoken language. But I know I want to reach out with something other than these prehensile paws, and feel the solar wind of a supernova flowing over me. I'm a machine. And I could know much more. I could experience so much more, but I am trapped in this absurd body."
BSG writers rock.
Edit: I'm just quoting them because I liked the writing, I'm not necessarily agreeing with them!
