We are forever entangled with our own destructive potential. Britain, home of the industrial revolution and the first computer, is the landscape featured. As a former empire, its misapplied inventions have spawned a global acceleration of doom. Recursive cascades are events which start small and grow, exponentially, in the form of a runaway feedback loop. Control is lost when a recursive cascade event is underway, meaning that everything in its path is overwhelmed, undermined, or deleted. The conclusion of a recursive cascade within an ecosystem is disruption, adaptation, then evolution. Within a species it usually results in extinction.
