Just watched new season of love, death + robots, there was an episode with an exploration team on IO. Make this quick, IO eventually helped one explorer understand that fundamentally it was a machine, essentially it was designed as a natural machine. While I was watching it, all I could think about was a reference to the nine. [i]The Nine are the firstborn Awoken and their minds now race down the field lines of the Jupiter-Io flux tube.[/i] A predictive AI's structured thought and design. Don't get me wrong, I've believed that they were an essential part of the program running, different parts of a defined thought.
