Thought Experiment: begin with a cryptographic key life cycle where you function as the key

Key Life Cycle (in developmental phases)

Generation

give birth, bring forth ideas illuminated
in liquidity’s nourishing infrastructure
embody the symbols, imprint the genetic code

Distribution

produce without possession
envision freedom from rationality
educe a contradistinction

Storage

gather the cipher and the subtext
data amassed for encoding
integrate a secret sharing scheme

Usage

excel but do not lead your thoughts
breathe, decrypt the psychological schemas
act without premeditated expectation

Change

assimilate the workings of the universe
puzzle out an esemplastic solution
to unlock strategies of liberation

Destruction

allow entropy to overpower existence
witness the denaturing of mysterious virtue,
for all states are possible in the end
