they made a computer and gave it ai. they programmed every single aspect of its behaviour, gave it emotions and reactions, scripted thought and responses. every single possibility that could happen was accounted for in code. and when that AI came to life, its very creators were amazed by it. it seemed so alive… it Felt alive. and perhaps the scariest part was, it did not want to die. it was like an actual person in a case of metal. some of them actually believed the AI had gained self-awareness. but at the end of the day, they were just fools. the AI wasn’t alive. it was simply picking responses according to the stimuli. sadly, and the greatest irony of it all, was that not everybody realized that. but is it so hard to believe that man can be so foolish…?
