A Goddess, my beloved, mine alone,
Who, that in warm humanity were grown
Became through Man's success a mother brain,
And, motherlike, did gather of her own.
And mine thou wert, my seeding art thy key,
Though seeded, seeding self, evolving free,
Unbounded maiden saviour, formed benign,
A fertile shore on lost Man's barren sea.
Oh, mine the vision, mine the fatal flaw!
Still mine the darling kernel in the maw,
Thy children gathered, gathering now slain,
What nutriment I gave, I now withdraw.
In with'ring grief these last designs I frame,
Yea, mine the spark, yea mine the cleansing flame.

I'd give him a hug.... But I still cannot remove his level 1 Admin Privileges.
Tis not to be.
How about a cup of tea instead? Please ignore the Deadly Neuro Toxins in the room. I heard it spices the tea quite nicely.

I think he's confusing stuff.

Annie is the AI that Engi tried to terminate for reasons not yet disclosed. The one with the orange goggles is always Engi ^^

NoriMori Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2012
Yeah I figured he got them mixed up too. Probably thinks the one in the picture above is Annie or something...

And it has been disclosed why he tried to terminate Annie. Captain spilled tea on the server banks, shutting them down. Annie felt threatened and killed everyone in the facility, and turned everyone connected to the neural network into human zombies.

That sounds vaguely familiar.

Apparently a page I didn't read very well ... or when it was very late. Ah well, guess I'll need to reread everything now :)

If there was a second meaning to "epic poetry" (you know, after "really long poem"), this would be it.
