If you want to change the world, you would need to reconsider the operating system on which it operates. Problem is – there isn’t just one operating system to rule them all and in countless, invisible ways they are all interconnected.

Be that as it may, this short animated story, called Cogs, does a far better job, than I’m currently doing, at showing how much of our reality is as a result of these powerful systems. We would have to disagree that these systems function as mechanistically as what this film would suggest, but its a cute analogue all the same.

The film is for an Australian Mentoring charity called AIME.
