Lot Essay

"Consider this: we are genetically different from apes by a meagre 5%. Apart from some fancy gadgets we behave instinctively like animals, [feeling] the need to mate, to gain power and to socialise. I guess I like to remind everyone, including myself, to deflate our hubris once in a while."

- David Chan, 2015
