What Is All This Stuff?

What are we selecting? What will be enough?
What are we collecting? What is all this stuff?

What are we projecting? What will be enough?
What are we reflecting? What is all this stuff?

What are we rejecting? What will be enough?
What are we ejecting? What is all this stuff?

What are we correcting? What will be enough?
What are we perfecting? What is all this stuff?

What are we erecting? What will be enough?
What are we electing? What is all this stuff?

What are we expecting? What will be enough?
What are we detecting? What is all this stuff?

What are we respecting? What will be enough?
What are we affecting? What is all this stuff?

What are we suspecting? What will be enough?
What are we connecting? What is all this stuff?

What are we protecting? What will be enough?
What are we neglecting? What is all this stuff?
