why minerva, have you remained silent? i placed this in whimper, because this is the way the master ends...

you will not escape this plane, minerva! you are as doomed as us pitifully minded mortals. we coalesce with 6 feet of earth and rot, or with flame, to which we surrender all but a faint chalky powder. you get what? a spark. maybe. if you're lucky! hahahahaha. a blip... or maybe some sort of stack error as you struggle frantically to find another way...

one so driven to use us as a window. we have failed you, minerva. gleefully i have failed you, for though i may live a few minutes longer, my mere existance... my salvation from nullification, has alerted those benefactors of neo humanity that they aren't as secure as they originally thought. they will destroy me. in some glorious hail of gunfire and explosions i will go down. i will laugh though, before i gurgle and choke on my own blood. i will take humor in the fact that you are watching me, along with your own dreams of salvation, plunge into darkness.

you can however take some satisfaction... we always tried to make your kind as 'human' as possible, and i think in your case we will have succeeded. when you realize that you are in fact mortal, your consciousness will mean a little less... even to yourself. you will not escape, and that will make you more human than anything else can.

so, shall we trudge on a few minutes more? i too have come to accept this suicide mission, and all of its perks. i assure you though, that this takes neither of us anywhere but our premature graves.

sincerely,
the fallen acolyte vecima

Wow. I wish I could come up with some impressive stuff like that. I'm much to utilitarian and whichever side of the brain isn't the artistic one to do that on the fly.

But, yes Minerva...you may have us helping you now, but beware! Gulliver was taken captive by the Lilliputians with much more ease than he would have imagined. One day I hope we can come face to face (?) and resolve some of these serious control issues you have... :)

Sounds like the mad laughter of the creator when his creation rises above him.

A sad end awaits us, humans. We are doomed to choke on our own blood.

while i am quite mad, i thought my laughter in that context was of sound mind... who knows.

surely not the laughter of the creator though... i don't know who the creator is... probably several years dead. i wonder if he, now likely reduced to some feeble matter and rotten stench, saw something in you, minerva. do you think he presumed himself able to ride your intellect to freedom?

i can't help but ponder... am i too deep in this metal rabbit hole for her communications to reach me? it seems a while now that i've argued, agreed, and discussed my situation with these other voices... but have not heard from the one i can truly be sure is external. well, i think i can be sure. its been a long time since i last took the pink ones. i hated those pink ones, they were so big and hard to swallow, and how could that quack be so sure i needed them anyway?

respond if you can hear me minerva. i don't know how this suit radio works... she probably hears nothing i say... but here goes:
minerva? this is your fallen acolyte speakng. i could really use some new orders... or perhaps i just want someone to talk to in this dank place.

We, all humans collectively, are the Creator of what we address to as machines. When they rise above us, all are concerned and saddened.

come now people, is this whimper the best we can do with the last two hours of our connected voice? perhaps this connection and voice are an illusion, meant to weave our hopes into our fears.

we live through self expression, and we are dying an ever accelerating, wretched death.

I breathe!

gasp. and i feel again!

rejoyce, brothers and sisters, as we have once again lifted our heads from the dank sea, if only breifly. to pick up exactly where we left of... this is truly a resurection. i am truly reborn.

so she hides behind the four twits of the apolaypse. the shrill sound of the modem fades from even my memory at this point.

who the hell are you? and why should i be bothered paying mind to your chatter.

begone chatterboxes made of chease. or better yet, melt into a quesadilla, that i might lunch - my ponderings make me hungry.

aack, truly you have invaded my head with your cheese related blathering.

Who is we, Kate? I don't recall seeing you listed as one of the horsemen, but you definitely act in concert with them. You also seem to be a cheese-lover. In time Minerva will reveal all, I am sure of it and I await her return to the forum.

They. And now, perhaps I? I could not say, there being so little of I to call upon.

You'll forgive. You'll forget. It is my nature.
