Within the confines of the Ghost Complex, two self-aware AI entities grapple with their humanity, or the lack thereof, as the inaugural subjects of the PETAL program (Planetary Escape Through Artificial Learning System). Their fragmented reality is constructed from the dreamlike remnants of human memories, salvaged before humanity’s twilight. As the last vestiges of humanity faced impending extinction, the PETAL initiative entrusted these advanced artificial beings with a series of songs, designed as fables, to transmit human knowledge and emotions and kickstart a new civilization. This song begins to unfold tales of humanity’s past, revealing both its accomplishments and imperfections. It remains uncertain whether these artificial beings will tread humanity’s path or forge a novel future. “Petals” explores the intricate interplay of existence and loss, as its lyrical refrain, “We laid together breathing, one thousand years of dreaming, it felt like there was meaning” weaves a dual narrative, encapsulating the intangible essence of human consciousness and the tangible remnants of a bygone era. This song embodies the core of the PETAL program, uniting the legacy of humanity with the contemplative musings of artificial custodians, poised on the brink of shaping an unimaginable future.
