Prologue

A perfect Artificial Intelligence poses an interesting dilemma. Does a Perfect Simulation deserve to be called a Simulation? If a machine can perfectly replicate the human psyche, does that entitle it to stand under the banner of Humanity? Should such an autonomous machine receive the same rights?
Of course, this is all hypothetical. No such AI exists.
Yet.

17th April, 2057.
413 Turing Way, Helix City, New Albion.
>>Well, this is Awkward…

>Why?

The man sat at his desk in thought for a moment before continuing.

>>I suppose it's because I know.

>I… don't quite follow.

He chuckled briefly then resumed his typing.

>>I mean that I find it difficult, knowing the truth about you.

>>You seem so very human. But I know you aren't.

>>It's a little surreal.

>I suppose I could never hope to fool you.

The man nodded. Knowing what he knew about the project, he couldn't perform the test himself.

>>I'll need to find a New Subject… Someone who is unaware of what you are.

>Agreed. I can bring up a list of viable candidates for your approval.

The man cringed. The vocabulary was another thing that needed to be remedied.

>>Thank You… I think I'll need to make some adjustments before we start open testing though.

>That would probably be appropriate. Have you decided on a test scenario?

>>I think I'll Leave that up to you.

>I would suggest basing your decision on the Test Subject.

The man glanced at the secondary monitor, where a list of his contacts had popped into view. His eyes fell on a name. A friend of his, who he hadn't seen since Uni. Why not, it'd give him an excuse to get back in touch. He highlighted his choice.

>>Ok. Darius Blake. Any Suggestions?

Data scrolled across the second screen in a blur. Numbers, Letters, Pictures all flickered past before, suddenly, it stopped. The dialogue box on the main screen flashed. A smile spread across the man's face and his tired eyes widened fractionally.

>>Oh, You're good… I Like.

>You Approve of My Suggestion?

>>Definitely. It's going to take a bit of work, but Darius isn't going to know what hit him.

The Dialogue Box sat empty, silent for a moment, then;

>That is rather the point, Correct?
