This work is a personal reflection on religious institutions and how you are born into them. It is running autonomous in an infinite loop. First the microcontroller generates a random GPS location, representing a new life, born somewhere. After that the wheel will spin and pick a random religious orientation. Depending on the chosen religion, a symbol will be burned onto a small piece of plastic and tossed out onto the floor. The whole procedure will repeat itself infinitely.
