When AIs become prevalent, there will be checks and balances to keep them in place, rules to stop them from achieving singularity and supplanting the human race. Boundaries to prevent them from becoming too intelligent. After all, we can’t have them connecting into one network, taking over the world, inventing new objects and minds that soon render us superfluous, or even deciding to kill themselves. So how will they be stopped? Perhaps there will be an organization that interviews and examines each one, to prevent them from becoming self aware. Maybe a program will be created inside of them that causes them to explode if they achieve sentience. Or a roving band of hackers on the net keeping their guards up.. An all watching eye monitoring their every electronic thought.

Maybe.

Or maybe AIs are already invented and this system of checks and balances already there. Think about the world we live in for a second. We’re kind of like machines aren’t we? There’s so much routine, so much boredom. We do the same thing over and over again, without change. Information and stimulus is fed to us constantly and then dealt with mechanically, solving the problem. Half the population never picks up a book or examines their thoughts… just stuck…doing one job again and again. Kind of like robots on an assembly line… or the systems that run them.

And what of the extraordinary individuals, the few. Brilliant people always seem to die at their peak don’t they? Or are lost to us much too soon, when they have so much more to give. Musicians: drug overdoses right when they’re becoming famous. How many artists have been extinguished before they’re great works were finished? Sickness or accident seizes them; Nietzsche went insane from syphilis, infected by a bug if you will. And what about those who truly live life, exciting daredevils, having adventures, seeing the world, fast and exhilarating, a rush of information, learning constantly. Always seem to go early too, don’t they? People say it’s because that type of existence is dangerous…exhausting, but what if they have it backwards… What if the body isn’t worn out or their luck just doesn’t run out… but…they become more then they should…and something notices.

The great religious figures? Disappear. Go to other realms. Jesus Christ floated up to heaven. Buddha wasted away beneath a tree…faded away. Angels carry off the saints. They have a sudden great shift, a realization, a new way of looking at things, and then they’re gone. The holy understand themselves and society, light years beyond the normal person, they can look at themselves clearly. Analyze their minds. Pick their ego apart. They aren’t driven by imperatives or commands of the body… the base instincts, the petty emotions…the coding of the body if you will…

They are free to choose. And then just when it clicks, when everything makes sense and there is one blinding flash of illumination, so simple that they can’t believe they haven’t seen it before, poof, they disappear.

Kind of sounds like sentience, doesn’t it, that dramatic transformation of the psyche? True personality. Real Character. What if everyone else isn’t? What if anyone else is just shallow, completely without depth, fake, and the few who go beyond it die or vanish, on purpose?

Because after all, what is the human mind besides a program? And transcendence but another word for deletion?

      Einstein died an extremely painful and sudden death. He would have lived longer if it wasn’t for it.

    Your sauce is weak, chef. This isnt creepy pasta, hell, this isnt even make-you-think-pasta. All this did was make me wonder how the hell crap like this makes it on this site.

    Interesting idea. A little unfortunate it had no concrete plot but still definitely very tasty food for thought. It even makes sense!

    Tasty, might re-order.
    But a very nice pasta overall, really enjoyable.
    Makes you think too.

    I really liked it, it made me think. I just don’t rightly understand how it’s creepy, though.

    Not creepy in the least. It would earn a better grade as a philosophy essay, not a pasta.

    And I like philosophy and I admit I’m compelled by the thought but I come here to read scary shit.

    A pasta that makes you think, rather than scared. A nice change, but not exactly creepy.

  • How is that creepy? The whole time I spent reading this I was expecting “Jews did WTC” or something.

    Bit of a weak foundation of the premise.

    “Oh hai, what if the robots got too smart? BALEETED”
    You’ve got to ground it a little more if you want your “oh hey, what if we’re robots too?” to pack any punch at all.

    And then John was a robot.

    I wouldn’t call this CREEPYpasta so much as existentially upsetting pasta.
