In the minus-tenth year of X’s life the City’s Infrastructure — that ontological monstrosity of entangled circuits, long-hyperhuman algorithms, ubiquitous hardware, and carefully designed rituals that kept human society functional after the eco-socio-psych collapse — decided that it no longer understood people. It had understood them very well at the time of its foundation, and in the decades since it had come to understand humans better than any person or system had ever understood them, but sometime and somehow they had become strange to this strangest of systems, if not so strange that the Infrastructure could not devise a solution.
“When X talked, people listened. When people talked, X seemed to already know. This pleased the Infrastructure, who then whispered on X’s neurons things to say to test the City’s society. Sometimes humans could not understand what X had said, and neither did X themselves. This did not displease the Infrastructure.” 👏👏👏
Max Headroom lives yet. Resonates self Isolate, aggregated agitated amorphous, relatively absolute as in hyper asymptotic n-spaced, anharmonic deviance boson destroyer in self propagating self referenced q-Zeno continuum effect. Nothing anomalous trailing one d-strings of quarks and popping leptons bursting with nuclear splinters rivetting extral holes for greater relative free energy gain.
