BLURB

Look around you, nothing but filth. Trash. A misappropriation of time and resources. Do you care? You don’t care. You’re a leech. An unscrupulous benefactor of mediocrity and the status quo. You’d rather fill people and the world with more garbage than spend a few seconds contemplating your own miserable existence. You probably aren’t even reading this right now. Just staring with a contemplative look on your face wondering if you just felt your cell phone vibrating in your pocket. You don’t care. You’ll never care. You can’t care. This isn’t about you. I’m not talking to you. Fuck you. [Chris Warnock]

Software code explanation:
@echo off makes sure that the interface stays clean and does not display any unnecessary data.
Set a/ next defines the variable for what "next" is. Next is this program, plus itself. If this program is 1, next is 2.
set a/ current tells us what exactly the current program is. It is exactly one less than the next program.
"Copy %current%.bat" is like impregnation of sorts - the program copies all of it's data, and passes it on to the "%next% program".
The start command is like child rearing. Program 1 boots up program 2.
The second echo is program 1 making a statement, telling you that it fulfilled it's purpose.
del %current% is when the process kills itself, and "exit" is the closing of it's final dialogue box.
Since program 1 started program 2, and program 2 has the same DNA, it will repeat the same process with program 3, and the process will keep repeating forever, a la humanity.
