Game over or on to the next level?

Culture is what enables us to understand what we're doing, to escape from the purely instinctive level. Although created by us, it has a way of “talking back” to us. So when I first saw this video, I wondered what it said to us. Is it just the author's idea of fun, or does it make us question our violent nature? Is it a token of a nihilist era – the end of the game of meaning we've been playing since the dawn of our species – or is it the announcement of the next level – in which we get even better at combining our cultural building blocks? Maybe I just played too much Tetris in my time…
