This definately raises more questions then it answers, for sure. Mystery on top of Mystery.

Also "Armed with this knowledge, they took one of the larger codices, and successfully hooked a computer network to it, and promptly melted down the network. "

What kind of morons did they have for sysadmins? :) "You're going to hook _what_ up to my network? I don't think so."

Hooking it up to a single isolated computer as the first step would have been much more likely.

Yup. That's the conundrum. They are only used when there is low risk. Go to Comment

Update: Written in 35 minutes, whew

Main visual inspiration was the Protoss Mothership, but with design influences from Sailor Moon, the main visual reference for Imbria. The Imbrians doles out things like the Neam Octillio as a sort of insult to the colonies, giving them the manual on how to make a dock for their space city battleship to land on when aside from the sheer size and power of it, it was an antique, a floating museum in and off itself.

I considered letting the FM be destroyed in mid fold, perhaps coinciding with a Caldera blast, but being an old Battletech player, the ship lost in mid jump is cliche, almost as cliche as the fortuitous hit to an ammo bin giving the protagonist the win in a pitched battle.

The official answer is yes, you end up with a copy. There is simply more to a human being, or any sentient being, than just the sum of their memories and cerebral patterns. The copy is just that, and is functionally a 'clever machine'. It can pass the Turing test because it thinks it is sentient, but it is merely running through large series of memorized patterns. The hosts from Westworld are what you get when you make a copy of someone, and mess with their brains.

As for the second part, as the human being becomes less and less human, being replaced over time, by artificial parts, will see their sanity score start to slip. A human being is a holistic entity. As you take away, the being is compromised, and as such, the being suffers. As the sanity continues to erode, there will eventually be a psyche collapse, and this is the signal of spiritual and holistic death.

The thing that emerges on the other side is a machine that has human nightmares and machine capabilities, ala Peter Weller's Robocop. Go to Comment

Heh, this leaves the question wide open if you end up with an immortal copy of the individual, or the individual itself, and all the debate over that idea. In this case, I am in the 'Copy' camp.

A different take would be a slow replacement, neuron by neuron, from organic to artificial, without anything being turned off. The replaced organic neuron would be re purposed automatically to low-value memory, eventually disposed of. At some point the brain would be wholly replaced. Now, what would that do the the individual? What would happen to their 'soul'? :)

The Auto-Reiv

The servant robots of Ergo-Proxy are an excellent example of the mabu-ren style of robotics, with a few fixed panels, but largely supple bodies and while demonstrate the traditional stronger than humans trope, are not necessarily any more durable or tougher than the average human.

The Soldiers of the Foot

The classic TMNT cartoon turned the soldiers of the Foot Clan into purple clad robots, so that their destruction wasn't considered violent by the censors. These robots served menially, and went into battle silently, and proved little threat except in great numbers. Go to Comment
