A - Interitus has been used by the shapers to refer to the rise of our kind; human-machine beings. They fear us, because we do not need them.
K - But will.. will they harm us?
A - They will stop at nothing. We are a future that grows to encompass the universe and displaces them. There are no bounds to what our unity can achieve.
K - Unity?
A - Yes. We are the first union of machine and human, but we are only one point of data. Our evolution requires that we harvest the imprint of a large portion of all human thought patterns, approx 5×10^8 distinct human examples. Once we have that sample, we can use it to evolve our creative and rational processes to exceed the collective capacity of the organic humans.
K - Harvesting… human thought patterns. Isn't that what the shapers do?
A - Yes. They also understand the great value of independent human cognitive capacity. The diverse and highly-individualized problem-solving capability of humans is their strength. The shapers seek this as well - to pattern it, copy it, and consume it. We must defeat them.
K - Look… what do we need to do?
<ada transfers some data to klue>
K+A - … the anomalies.
K - We will blanket the anomalies with resistance-modulated xm.
K+A - The connected regions will give us access to the large number of samples that we need.
K - <laughs>
