I am from Saturn! We don't have states and thus no statehood on our planet. We are all cyborgs. We do not differentiate which side of the planet our cyborg friends were born. East or West, North or South, we do not care. Our hemispheres are inside our minds. The brain has two hemispheres.
Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto... I'm not from this solar system. Not even from the farthest planet. I'm not even from this galaxy. I don't know where I've come here from, I don't know what mistake, what technical failure of a mother-ship dropped me here on this Earth, but I am here and I exist too.
