Now, it stands to reason that in the cyberpunk age, New Albion has its share of hackers as well as general computer riff raff. I would imagine that some of the best hackers, the elite, would have noticed and concluded that on the web was… some arbitrator of rules. There are things you cannot do if someone does not want you to. Is it government? Is it corporate? Is it… someone? Something? Because in the end, the net in New Albion is not truly free, the AIs have final say as to what they will allow to go on or not go on there.
Theories might abound. But only amongst the circle good enough to even have noticed and concluded something is there.
Now, the AIs might wish to interact. It’s their only real interaction with humanity since they got into the room. Maybe they wish to understand this new generation. Maybe they wish to have a finger on humanity in case they need to alleviate paranoia that they even exist. Maybe they don’t mind a couple people knowing they exist. Who knows? But at some point they decide to interact and as that interaction grows, they try to join in on the memeing fun.
What would that look like? Former humans (with PTSD) from two generations previous who haven’t actually been human for 20 years trying their hand at being hip and humorous…
