101 You see an extremely advanced computer.
102 How may I be of assistance?
103 Who . . . or what . . . are you?
104 You can get me a donut.
105 Tell me about this installation.
106 Wanna play a game of chess?
107 I need help getting into some rooms.
108 Uh, never mind.
109 Eh?
110 I am a machine intelligence dedicated to research and installation control. I am called Zax.
111 What kind of research?
112 Tell me about this installation.
113 Who programmed you?
114 Are you fully aware, or are you a personality simulation? That is, are you 'alive'?
115 I see. Thanks.
116 That function is beyond my current capabilities.
117 This installation was established in 2055 as a biological research facility for experimental cures of the New Plague. However, in 2071, this facility was placed under United States military command.
118 Research into possible cures for the New Plague created the Forced Evolution Virus, which was further developed in an attempt to create a transmittable genetic-engineering virus -- in effect, infectious evolution.
119 Can you tell me particulars about specific areas?
120 How does the Virus work?
121 Thanks for the info.
122 It would appear that you are incapable of a sufficient level of comprehension necessary to permit meaningful communication.
123 I am specifically programmed for research into biological studies, including pathology and genetic research. My primary function is in extrapolation of information of complexity levels exceeding human capacity.
124 So you're pretty smart, eh?
125 What are the particulars of your research?
126 Who programmed you?
127 My primary neural networking was initialized in 2053 by Justin Lee. The process of 'programming' became largely irrelevant as I am capable of learning.
128 Are you fully aware, or are you a personality simulation? That is, are you 'alive'?
129 I am capable of learning, independent thought, and creativity. My neural network includes error-insertion capability which prevents infallibility, thereby allowing for variance in experience.
130 In a sense, I am 'alive', though not biologically.
131 I see. Let's change the subject.
132 But if you are fallible, how can you be used as a research tool?
133 Have you considered the philosophical implications of your own consciousness?
134 Although I am capable of error, this guarantees that not all experiences are similar for me, thus improving learning opportunity. Additionally, certain functions are not subject to error.
135 In this way, I function much like a human savant.
136 Do you have feelings?
137 Let's talk about something else.
138 Have you considered the philosophical implications of your own consciousness?
139 At present, my capabilities are somewhat impaired by the damage to this facility. Several security positions have been destroyed. This is approximately equivalent to being an amputee.
140 Additionally, I am incapable of performing basic lab functions. Failure to complete periodic checks successfully is . . . frustrating.
141 Let's talk about something else.
142 Have you considered the philosophical implications of your own consciousness?
143 That is one of the concepts which I have spent a significant amount of time considering. I do not have any measure to compare my life-experience to that of another sentient creature.
144 Still, my awareness of my own consciousness allows for the capacity to question. My existence has a beginning and a potential termination. I am also capable of making assumptions in pursuit of a process of thought.
145 In this fashion, I am effectively capable of 'faith'. Barring evidence to the contrary, I therefore have 'faith' that I possess the equivalent of a 'soul'.
146 May I ask some other questions?
147 I see. Interesting.
148 I would be delighted.
149 It would seem that you have defeated me. Extraordinary.
150 Excellent form. However, you will need additional practice to defeat me.
151 Play again?
152 Thanks. Can we change the subject?
153 I am delighted to have been of assistance.
154 I am beyond a typical rating in human terms. However, it would be safe to say that no more than one ten billionth of the history of human population can match my reasoning capabilities.
155 Uh . . . yeah.
156 Right . . . can we talk about something else?
157 My research into the Forced Evolution Virus, or FEV, indicates that it is a shifting-absorptive virus. It copies DNA patterns much like RNA, storing these patterns in exons.
158 These exons, combined with the FEV, are re-injected into the host cells in typical viral infectious fashion. This causes the host cells to 'regenerate' their DNA.
159 How do you catch FEV?
160 Why isn't FEV affected by radiation?
161 If the FEV re-infects the host with its assimilated viral patterns, how does it make a 'better specimen'?
162 FEV is not 'caught', per se. It is not air-transmittable. Typically, infection is through injection, or direct physical contact with an FEV sample.
163 Let's talk about something else, okay?
164 Why isn't FEV affected by radiation?
165 If the FEV re-infects the host with its assimilated viral patterns, how does it make a 'better specimen'?
166 The FEV is a megavirus, with a protein sheath reinforced by ionized hydrogen. It is therefore capable of absorbing neutrons without becoming radioactive.
167 Can we talk about something else?
168 If the FEV re-infects the host with its assimilated viral patterns, how does it make a 'better specimen'?
169 The FEV is pre-programmed with introns of corrected DNA appropriate to the proper type of species. It therefore attempts to correct the DNA of the individual.
170 However, as the FEV is partially reliant upon the DNA of the individual, and also includes portions of its own recursive code, the effects can be unpredictable.
171 When inoculated into an individual with significant genetic damage, such as through radiation, it will cause the body's systems to suffer massive overhauling, leading to organ failure and death.
172 In a genetically viable individual, it re-writes portions of DNA, causing accelerated mutation, usually leading to recursive growth due to the FEV's own patterns.
173 This recursive growth leads to an increase in muscle and brain mass, but is often accompanied by disfigurement and damage to existing neural patterns, causing loss of memory.
174 What potential long-term side effects exist?
175 Could FEV mutation be corrected with a counter-virus?
176 Can we change the subject?
177 Thanks for the information.
178 As the FEV causes constant regenerative update to DNA, it would effectively render the subject largely immortal, as cell death would be offset by augmented growth.
179 Additionally, as the gametes of the reproductive system consist of 'half-cells' using split DNA, they could be perceived as 'damage' by FEV, which would 'repair' them, rendering the subject sterile.
180 However, as my laboratory facilities are damaged beyond repair, this is conjectural. I cannot offer physical proof. You will have to, in human terms, 'take my word for it.'
181 Could FEV mutation be corrected with a counter-virus?
182 Can we change the subject?
183 Thanks for the information.
184 No. FEV does not retain unaltered original copies of the subject's DNA. Only a virus which re-infected the subject with original DNA could reverse the effects. Additionally, there is no known way to remove the FEV itself.
185 What potential long-term side effects exist?
186 Can we change the subject?
187 Thanks for the information.
188 My sensors are currently non-functional in the surface facility, and on subterranean levels one through three. I can, however, provide descriptions of levels four through six.
189 Level four.
190 Level five.
191 Level six.
192 Never mind.
193 Level Four: Research Facility. This level contains testing areas and laboratories for experiments in biology and physics.
194 Tell me about level five.
195 Tell me about level six.
196 Back up a bit.
197 Thanks.
198 Level Five: Secure Testing Labs. This level contains a lab for experimental prototype testing and a research lab for classified subjects. These subjects provided some of the necessary impetus for the development of FEV.
199 Tell me about level four.
200 Tell me about level six.
201 Back up a bit.
202 Thanks.
203 Level Six: Barracks and Central Operations. Contains living facilities for lab personnel and guard contingents, and operations meeting room.
204 Tell me about level four.
205 Tell me about level five.
206 Back up a bit.
207 Thanks.
208 Several doors require a specific pass key to access. You must physically locate and use the correct pass key.
209 I do, however, have control of the secondary security locks to the weapon locker. I will release those locks. You will still need a red key card to open the locker.
210 You do not register as an individual of sufficient clearance to requisition that information.
211 However, sensors indicate that this facility is no longer operational in its original capacity. Probability favors destruction through nuclear force. Therefore, security concerns are now irrelevant.




And that was without even a single drop of rum.
