A dandelion (Taraxacum) is a perfect weed.
It exhibits extremely variable biology and morphology. It is draught resistant and tough.
The flowers are beautiful. The leaves are delicious and nutritious in salads and soups.
If you pull one out, the tiniest fragment of root left in the Earth quickly grows back into a fully functional plant.
The seeds are fun to blow around.
They detach themselves from the frond at the slightest breeze.
They float for miles on a tiny bit of wind, and sprout back to life even through cracks in the pavement.
What if someone discovers memetic viruses strong enough to reclaim authority, take radical responsibility, and build new gameworlds that make existing gameworlds irrelevant?
What if that upgraded thoughtware starts blowing around the world like dandelion seeds?
What if you get infected?
What are you going to do?
