Human-powered research for a post-human age
Before the singularity, our brains allowed us to reveal uncharted knowledge. Within universities, we researched the ideas our brains once postulated and harnessed computers to bring us closer to the solutions. Since the orb has taken over, the matter in our heads enslaves us. The artificial intelligence uses us as its personal data mine; the sickening irony being our places in society have reversed. Our pleas of mercy have only created a system of subservience, where once every month we are required to plug into the orb and carry out its calculations. I worry that one of these computations will be our downfall. The only reason I am able to write to you now is that to build computers as powerful as our brains, it would damn this scorched earth to no chance of recovery. The human race have become organic robots, enslaved from birth and doomed to calculate their demise.
