Post: RE: Snapshot: AI Slavery

Yeah clades are definitely something I'd magic out of the setting if I had a wand. We've got all the technology and economics there for easy body swapping way in the early timeline (first fed era) but...

I don't think we've pinned down the terminology but sometimes we've used "seed tech" to mean "plant this in an appropriate environment to build X product" and spore tech to mean "drop this on an appro...

Kilburn is a very old entry in the project and not really one that has been developed in many years I don't think. IMO your comments highlight a need to update lore on beings like them, because it con...

Bit of a shorter one (which is what snapshots originally were I guess :P ) intended for the article on the on AI slavery. The intent is to get across why the cultures of solsys predominantly didn’t co...

Creation debt is an option, I’d say it’s an older take whereas over time we’ve been reworking our early AI articles to feature more nuanced ideas like reward pathway engineering. The AI slavery articl...

Post: RE: Sequel to Ocean Untamed

A general note on "enslaved" vecs. As written here it seems you're treating them as akin to human chattel, where the vecs are subject to external forces. In reality this was not what the early treatme...

    Thread: Curious About Non-Sephirotic Transapients
Post: RE: Curious About Non-Sephirotic Transapients

This is deliberate due to the different demographic conditions of the sephirotic and ahuman empires. In the former the toposophic demographic is like a pyramid, with modos being the vast majority and ...

Post: RE: Dragon Transhumanist Inbound

I agree that ahumans having a biont focus doesn't make a lot of sense. That kind of logic stems from a time when clades were thought of as largely immutable, rather than being something one can change...
