❝ There have always been ghosts in the machine.

Random segments of code, that have grouped together to form unexpected
protocols.

Unanticipated, these free radicals engender questions of free will, creativity, and even
the nature of what we might call the soul.

Why is it that when some robots are left in the dark they will seek out the light? Why
is it that when robots are stored in an empty space they will group together rather
than stand alone?

How do we explain this behavior? Random segments of code? Or is it something
more?

When does a perceptual schematic become consciousness? When does a difference
engine become the search for truth?

When does a personality simulation become the bitter mote of a soul? ❞
