It takes a bit of a logical leap when it claims that "the system" will engineer people directly.

If you think that machines can somehow possess the same qualities as a human brain, then why is it improbable to think that as with humans if it can attain controlling power that it won't?

That's assuming it will be a singular consciousness alone. Plus, even in the worse case situation such a consciousness will not be all powerful. Smash a few turbines or transformers in key locations across the world and you can black out 2/3's of the world's power grids. It doesn't take lasers or plasma rifles to fuck up a turbine either.

And you haven't given me a real motive as to why such a consciousness would need to attack or lash out. At worse, I believe it will act more like a teenager than a mass murderer (Honestly, I can't say which is worse sometimes...).

You are misguided, and I consider anyone working towards such a goal to be initiating force.

No, you're misguided as you want to disrupt the Pattern.

I don't get this one.  Seems contradictory.  I'm confused.

She wants it so that she can transplant her brain into a replicated human that has been genetically engineered from scratch to be perfect and has a cunt and tits.
