Everything is sampled, including your DNA

It’s in our DNA to cut and paste, to sample from each other and to let our ideas have sex.

The internet is the largest cut and paste machine. It begs for recombinations, a collection of stuff we can remix and make feel like our own.

Like a Tumblr page, we decorate our personalities with originality. But everything from our interests to our blood develops from outside sources like an amalgamation of sounds.
