The title of this article comes from the song "Lament For The Auroch," by The Sword: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSNq03_6I5g . You'll see why, in a bit. Ultimately, this piece is about thinking through the full range of implications of your train of thought, and making sure you know and acknowledge the sources of your lines of thinking.

Because it is an Amazing piece of Ray Bradbury-esque allegorical science fiction.
