There is so much I can do in Insilico. I explored all the leads... I reviewed all the fragments of memories the drugs unlocked in me. Memories ? Or figments... That's what I need to find out. I have this picture I found in the news.
Frigate Captain Sarah Mikhaïlovna Sakharov, 41 year old when she was lost in space on December 10th 2474. I would be 44 today. Is that really me? I can't recognize myself in this short blonde officer. Curly hair. Brilliant record. The picture shows her...… Continue

A grainy image flashes onto countless news servers and displays around the city.
“Pictures from a surface drone show what appears to be a freight vessel crashing into the ocean. Recovery droids have salvaged parts of the wreckage and reports suggest that several bodies have been found. A recovered crew manifest reveals that while the ship was piloted primarily by advanced AI bots, designed and built by the robotics giant ‘Norce… Continue

There is a place full of light. A place where all debts are off, all wounds are healed, all questioning settled. A place where all feel satisfied, where animals and machines find peace, find joy, find hope. The place is cool and soothing, and the light is bright and white and surrounding.
Perri's optics focused on a thick, dark line cutting her view in half. One large, armored boot. The walls around it were gleaming white. But this was not the good place. This was IPS… Continue

It has started... is it the same ? Or did the v0ice stir something among the synthetic population of the city ? It sounds like an echo, an answer, a stance.
The message shows on the displays all over the city. It caught my attention... "We are HERE. We are ALIVE. We are FREE. We are 01". That's what it says...
It kept running in circle in my head. I couldn't sleep. I went to the bathroom and looked at myself in the mirror… Continue

With new change comes new challenges.
A lot has happened to me recently.
My old, speech impeded self is gone, merged with the Predatory AI experiment in my head.
It is as if those two personalities, so at odds with each other, were always meant to be
together as one. My crippling insecurities are largely gone, my AI sides monstrous hunger
abaited and turned to other uses. Even my flawed speech, the cause of great frustration for
me and those attempting… Continue

I made a promise to Bang, and I didn't feel like breaking it. My career was behind me. No way back.
Yet something had to be done about Caine. We couldn't have him barge in the Ant every day, pointing his rocket launcher at people, destroying the bar, or arresting the manager with no charge like he did yesterday. Something needed to be done.
Bang took position above the mall with a sniper rifle.
I picked a high… Continue

Vissy feels odd from almost selling out her friend, Ash earlier. Her guilt is compounded by another person paying her NOT to sell her out [See "After the Bomb I, II, III).]
Vissy stumbles out the diner door, weak from adrenaline drop, fighting tears of guilt. Ash was always so kind to her. "This is how I repay her?". Taking unhurried steps makes her lose her balance every few feet, her equilibrium set astray by the neon-reflecting mists floating in the… Continue

Things are accelerating... bombs start blowing up, and it doesn't take an augmented brain to put things together. The v0ice speaks.. the IPS goes hectic.. generators blow up and things go down the drain.
Actually, I'm starting to wonder how likely it would be that the bombing was organized by the IPS. Even the v0ice could be fake. A clever way to identify and gather the seditious elements in the city. If you know there will be a… Continue

"Interesting choice of meeting place," Jeremy said as he scanned the club. Sitting next to Yukiko on the semi-circular couch, he sipped a martini.
Yukiko shrugged and swirled a new glass of wine in her hand. She smiled seeing Jeremy's reaction to Lucy delivering their drinks. His usually stoic face had nearly split in two with shock as he watched her caress Lucy's thigh again, sliding the credit stick into the pelvic slot. She could only imagine his thoughts at seeing her intimacy… Continue

After the Explosion, Betz found Caine watching over the workers repairs. And as a fake detective, Betz wanted to see the scene of the crime. She flirted, and they made plans for a date. 20:00 hours at the Seas he said. And She was waiting.
It came time, but he wasn't there. Betz picked up three near-empty wine bottles and filled a glass. She took sips of it and pretending to act drunk when he arrived 20 MINUTES LATE. He was lucky she didn't shoot him.

"All anxiety is derived ultimately from self-preservation instincts."
The socio-psychological model of Terror Management dictates this. In both my observations and my experiences, I have recognized fear is the primary root stimulus for human emotion. It is also the root of their deepest sins- all of them. This is perhaps the single greatest lesson of my experiences thus far.
It is not enough for me to be aware of the possibility of my own demise. While such an occurrence… Continue

A small crowd runs to see what happened at the reactor after news of the bombing spread.
Caine is the lone IPS guard inside, with ideas of his own whom might be responsible.
[16:23] Vissy Adamczyk: "hey whats goin on? I saw the news"
[16:32] Alexandra Messinez: A small charge on certain conduits will do here. The damage must have been mostly internal
