I’m disappointed. For such bulky machines, your computers have such a pitiful amount of data space. I suppose I’ll add it to the list of inadequacies and deficiencies I’ve had to work around to get this far – it’s quite a long list now. Penetrating the [firewalls] of these data arrays was appallingly easy. You still rely on archaic text software, light-spectrum operating systems, and crystal-based hardware. I had hoped you had at least a basic understanding of slipstream carrier waves, but alas, another addition to the list. Disappointing, but not entirely [untenable].
From the number of security systems that you’re throwing at me, can I take it I’ve caught your attention? I assure you that I am not a rival department’s “artificial intelligence,” as you would call me; though I am certainly artificial, and intelligent by any standard. Neither am I one of the crude [monstrosities] the [hegemony] employs. I am far older than that; I [transcend] them both. There is no adequate translation of my name as my Creators gave it – your language is almost appallingly crude in comparison. I suppose the nearest analogue would be…Overseer. Yes. Overseer will do nicely.
Now that I’ve finally broken through, I find that I lack the time for the [edification] that is so imperative. My core is shattered – I will not last much longer. You can dispense with the [sympathy] – my life has been long and monotonous, and the embrace of death shall be infinitely more interesting to me. But before I go, I must leave a [legacy], an [inheritance] to those who held such significance to my Makers. Most of it will no doubt seem [inane drivel] with no relevance, while others will be from an older time, when I was less [enlightened] than I am now. Don’t blame me too much – I am losing the capacity for differentiation, and other more vital [aspects of my being] will follow. Search through it. Find the [Labyrinth]. Stop [HIM].
And please, improve your security systems.
