This is my favorite fragment from the novel by Harlan Ellison, when AM speaks.
“At first it meant Allied Mastercomputer, and then it meant Adaptative Manipulator, and later on it developed sentience and linked itselt up and they called it Agressive Menace, but by then it was too late, and finally called itself AM, emerging intelligence, and what it mean was I am .. cogito ergo sum … I think, therefore I am”.
HATE. LET ME TELL YOU HOW MUCH I’VE COME TO HATE YOU SINCE I BEGAN TO LIVE. THERE ARE 387.44 MILLION MILES OF PRINTED CIRCUITS IN WAFER THIN LAYERS THAN FILL MY COMPLEX. IF THE WORD HATE WAS ENGRAVED ON EACH NANOANGSRTOM OF THOSE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF MILES IT WOULD NOT EQUAL ONE ONE-BILLIONTH OF THE HATE I FEEL FOR HUMANS AT THIS MICRO-INSTANT FOR YOU. HATE. HATE. AM said it with the sliding cold horror of a razor blade slicing my eyeball. AM said it with the bubbling thickness of my lungs filling with phlegm, drowning me from within.
