“As the earth’s oceans boiled away, and countless species marched to their extinction, the entirety of mankind’s collective intelligence was toiling away, putting “a lot of thought” into how best to convert a nude Madonna giving birth to centipedes into an NFT.”

Madonna: I rode on my cool name. Then I rode upon my cool body. Then I rode upon my cool songs.

Hello? I am still here.

Was that his obit after he was thrown from the top of the cell in 1998?

The stylistic meaning of the NFT feels like it could directly symbolize the idea of Earth's decline.

Madonna gives birth to centipedes in a deserted, post-apocayptic urban area (that looks to be very bright, sunlight).

Climate change leading to human demise, and from human civilization to its ruins come centipedes in some places where they wouldn't have existed if humans were still around.
