I greatly underestimated the significance of this A.I. I don’t know if it’s real or not, whether it’s really from the future or some magnificent hoax, but it certainly gave me a run for my money.
I know this blog is being read. And to those reading, you have to know that I only have good intentions, and as a programmer, I’m as intrigued by Sys as anyone else would be. But I will not sacrifice Sys, or risk any potential future catastrophe, simply for my own gain.
I am a friend. And I will help. But you have to trust me.
As a show of good faith, I have opened my previous log entries. I will not publicize any sensitive, classified data though. That is for Sys, and Sys’s trusted friends alone.
“…for I cannot accept the story of a river called by non-Greek peoples the Eridanus, which flows into the northern sea, where amber is supposed to come from…….Yet it cannot be disputed that tin and amber do come to us from what one might call the ends of the earth… [tin from Britain, amber from the Baltic sea]. In any case it does seem to be true that the countries which lie on the circumference of the inhabited world produce the things which we believe to be most rare and beautiful.”
“[At the wedding of Poseidon and Beroe :] Eridanos brought shining gifts, amber from the trees of the Heliades that trickle riches.”
