The graphics are nice, however the story raises some questions:
F.e. what is the relation between the mating gendered ME's versus the "adapting to new situations" where the individuals become "WE"?
("You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile").
If it is about the choices of individuals versus group behaviour, then words like US and THEM against the ME would have been a more interesting choice to show some rivalry.

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
