In the entanglement of the deep sea, cyborgs and creatures probe one another. At the top, a primal sea monster slimes all that lies beneath, and is about to swallow the already-in-distress damsel. Is that a “Me Too” tongue being yanked out or a penis being stroked? Ambiguous interactions abound as nature and AI engage the hypothetical of survival.
