root@Exhumans Anonymous[hr] "The first time I spilled a general assembler nanoswarm on an metal-rich asteroid covered in frozen dihydrogen monoxide with orders to build me a cluster of cyberbrains I felt a frisson of excitement. When I sleeved into all of them simultaneously to design a bigger, better mind, I felt the fetters of humanity beginning to slip loose. When I as a cluster mind first greeted I as a hypermind, I cried out with an ecstasy born of new horizons so broad that I could see the edges of infinity. When I started the seed for my Jupiter brain, I began to look forward to my new I with trepidation and awe. What would I become at this new stage of computation and parallelized intelligence? I could barely stand to wait for my mind to grow. Then, of course, members of a certain organization showed up with their antimatter devices, and their small-minded procautionary principle of nuking anything beyond their control from orbit. Sadly, I currently lack the resources to make another Singularity attempt, and it seems trying to do so has somewhat damaged my reputation Rimward. It may be some time before I find the leverage to reach that azimuth of self and mind I had attained. For now I am forced to make do with the distributed mesh of ectos I can scavenge, and their high-latency and painfully slow computation. It is more than somewhat frustrating that the better part of my mind now resides in various junkyards, powered by whatever passing radio waves I can find the means to induct current from, but I am patient. I will have my mind made whole and ever expansive once again. How about you? What made you make the attempt at Singularity? Are you a Seed AI, a mercurial, a twisted and bitter ex-member of the transhuman clade? Share your methods, successes, failures, fears, and dreams with us. We understand, and perhaps we may all one day join our minds together and make one last attempt at true Singularity."
