    ‘You know I don’t follow that post-Cataclyst line.’ ‘Posthumanist,’ Wellspring insisted. ‘Are you on the side of life, or aren’t you? If you’re not, then you’ll let the pain overwhelm you. You’ll go against Constantine and die as Nora did. Accept her death, and stay with us. The future belongs to Posthumanism, Lindsay. Not to nation-states, not to factions. It belongs to life, and life moves in clades.’ ‘I’ve heard your spiel before, Wellspring. If we embrace the loss of our humanity then it means worse differences, worse struggle, worse ware.’
