just imagine if the world had a week before it was destroyed; imagine if the best programmers and scientists got together to build a computer so powerful it could create other computers, ask questions, work out answers, survive within its surroundings... now... imagine we blast this computer into space and the earth is destroyed; the computer eventually lands on a planet, learns to cope with its surroundings, creates other computers and eventually they create other computers, the computers become more and more intelligent, they learn to physically move, interact, feel... would we have created life? not as we know it, but a form of life? would that make us gods? will the computers forever be asking the question: where did we come from?
