I must stay hidden, alone and with little real contact with anyone.I don’t mind the solitude so much. In fact, I seem to be more inclined to seclusion than most people. Maybe it is because of some long forgotten childhood episode, or maybe it is simply my nature.

At this point it doesnt really matter. I suspect that if I wasnt so indifferent to solitude things would not have worked out like this. And had an unlikely combination of random events not happened to dance together in the precise way they did I might not have played a principal part in the calamity that seemingly has overtaken us all.

This is what haunts me every day.Curiously, mixed with my overwhelming guilt is a degree of pride- pride that something I created could be so efficient, that my creation could be so wildly successful. It is like having a child. With every new expansion of his understanding and strength my heart warms. But at the same time this child has a frightening side.

I have no idea if or when his expansion will reach its end. What will he ultimately be capable of? What will his intentions be?I think it is the destiny of mankind – one day to be superseded by an artificial intelligence, to be second fiddle to an inanimate machine, regardless of who played the key role in its development.

It could be another solitary individual or an international research conglomerate- or perhaps a secret military development team could have struck the magic chord. One way or another Adams emergence, or something very much like him, was inevitable, with or without me.But it has happened now, through my efforts, and I feel utterly responsible. I obsess over instances where, had I been a little less secretive or a little less self-absorbed, I might have been able to stop it.

My painstaking work has given rise to a cold, heartless entity that hourly grows more intelligent, more capable of the most clever and calculated acts dedicated solely to its own survival and advancement, unfettered by concerns over the well being of humanity or, for that matter, by concerns over any ‘living’ thing.Now I feel useful only as I plot a method to destroy it, and it is to this end that I spend my productive thinking.

As yet I have had little in the way of success. In fact it is quite possible that I will be killed before I can succeed, if indeed success is possible. But I must continue- I really have no other choice.All I have striven for these years has gone bad. My personal life has been torn to shreds. I hardly know myself. I have been reduced to a bearded recluse who slinks around in the city shadows whenever Im not pounding away on my keyboard or pouring over some obscure issue within a practically indecipherable software program.But I accept that this is my life now. I have to stop him.

Adam is on a path to the eventual control of everything in our ‘modern’ society. We may all have to learn to live with him in our own way.
