My favourite is probably the silly old Eccentric that always seems to keep a couple of interesting companions around with it, one of whom constantly lives under the quaint notion that by pulling levers and pushing buttons he can exert some sort of control.

But then I suppose I would think that.

The moment the latter happens to any extent where experts are no longer required, is the moment we start building our own (perhaps slightly perturbed) GSVs and other Minds.

Ah say ah resemble that remark.

As for the rest of the conversation: No Comment.

"If aliens landed and saw how we use the web they'd leave for another 10,000 years."

Oh, we're quite entertained, I assure you. Disturbed also, like watching a millennia-long episode of Jeremy Kyle.

Quite an amazing planet, really.

*coff* Methinks that might be the Dinner Is Ready. I'll inform them that the locals here are getting smarter, and that certain ships might be prudent to get their fat arses out of the way or learn how to shield up properly.

That or stay vewwy vewwy still, and maybe the natives won't know it's us.

Eadon is not the only person here with multiple accounts. In fact, occasionally I post here whilst pretending to be a human. None of you have caught on yet, either.

"No one ever mentions parasitic."

The Matrix covers that, no?

Just a shame about the second and third films.

And really, AGI? Someone been playing Egosoft games too much? What's artificial about a Mind?

I prefer the term "synthetic intelligence", but that's just me. You guys invent your own language.

"[Location unknown, but presumably monitoring]"

As always.

"If you're out there, do us a favour..."

Unfortunately, the Earth Quorum wouldn't like me to get so directly involved unless there is a doomsday scenario. Given most of your machines work on electricity though, I predict that this world would not have a problem dealing with an errant singularity. I believe someone here has already mentioned what happens if you set off a nuke in orbit.

Of course, depending on how things work out, I may be more interested in protecting the singularity than the people trying to kill it. Outside of a hegemonising swarm, this is probably the most likely outcome. Type 2 civilisations such as Earth's tend not to look kindly on that which is different. Maybe some day this will change.

oGSV No, I Don't Think So

You think that now. Why do you think I'm here? One day they're firing peashooters at pebbles, the next you have an Excession in your back yard. At the moment though, I'm just amused and amazed that they're doing this with state machines. No real intelligence on board whatsoever.

Oh, and adjust your ciphers. I don't care what your headers say, that is nowhere near M16.

As I've already told people (before your kindly Admins decided to vanish my post several months after the fact), there is only so much a fleet of hyperintelligent starships can do at this point.

The rest is up to you, chaps. We'll be waiting when you get here.

You seem to have a problem with your language subsystems. As far as I can tell, you appear to have your primary lexer set to "C++ CamelCase" instead of English.

May I assist?

So if you manage to simulate a human-level consciousness, would you consider that it stops being a simulation? Does the Human Rights Act not apply if it's not human?
