“I must take up painting” he said to himself. Then he walked to the Bridge.

The Machine in His Head

“You are a machine which was placed inside his head.”

“His chest to be exact.”

“But you are just a hard drive.”

“Are you just a leg or an arm or a brain?..No. You are a fathomless composite of atavistic roots reaching back to primordial origins. Do you know where you came from?”

Where did we originate?
Where did we come from?

“I came from my mother and father. Who are you? Where did you come from? Who are you?”

“Who am I?” said the Captain.

“In a way I am your creator. Or at least your greatest cultural hero. I designed and had built the social system in which you live. I conceived the four pillars.”

I conceived it.
I thought of it.

I told Rupert Crowe how to make cement. I am the one who is responsible for the maintenance and survival of this entity..this universal city.

It is true that I did not create the building blocks. But do you know who did?”

“No”, said Katrina..

“Then I am at least as qualified as any of your gods.. at least as qualified for god status.”

“A god robot..how can a machine be more intelligent than a human?”

“Perhaps a machine is more intelligent than some humans..all the humans so far..” the captain chortled

“Where did you learn to do that?” said Katrina. “Whose laugh was that? Are you in there Jimmy? Just because the people who govern our city were stupid enough to turn everything over to robots and machines, does not mean everybody is that stupid..or that they did the right thing” said Katrina.

“Step back” said the robot. “I sense your malice.”

Step back
Retreat

“The thought of harming or killing another sentient being..even a machine, or cyborg is abhorrent to an El soul” said Katrina.

“Are you an El soul?” said the Captain.

“Of course” said Katrina. “All humans are El souls. All of them. Not some of them. All of them.”

“Some of them are fallen,” smiled the Captain.

“No, they are not” said Katrina. “All shall be saved! All shall be saved. All shall be saved by El.”

“What is El?”

“The greatest power in the universe. Don’t you know what it is?”

Captain Vac looked shifty. Katrina stared at him. “You are a machine” she said.

He looked at her uncomprehendingly.
