Isolation Strategy
Method of avoiding viral attacks by isolating one's awareness from the rest of the universe.

Used by some wormhole management dedicated ai during the Version War, as a defensive against subversive viruses. With no inputs, there can be no viral infection, no matter how high the toposophic grade of the ai virus. The wormhole AI will simply not talk to other computers. Its mind will have a few untouchable portions to itself, maybe even physically separate systems. These systems would require direct sabotage in order to shut them down.
