... so this explains all the people on the IRC that try to cyber me... they're just the Cybermind... -- Sergeant Major Arnold Lewis, UNSC Naval Special Warfare Development Group[COM] 03:00, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

So this cybermind is an über computer virus? And why would something of the Flood have a Forerunner Symbol? Richard R. Hunt Buck 0 0 1.png Incoming Transmissions Outgoing Transmissions

Your not safe. The cybermind is your computer once its established on a planet. And the icon is used by the gravemind in the terminals. - Echo 1 18:33, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

Perhaps it would, if this actually made sense. I'm afraid I still don't see how this concept works.

This is a good article, but, 1. Get Norton 2. Turn off infected computers 3. How would they infect computers? You cant put a flood infection form in your computer disk tray and say INFECT DAMMIT!- But this article is a good idea!

First of all, Cyberminds are... I'll work on the article. Just read it when I'm done. - Echo 1 01:41, June 9, 2010 (UTC)

I really hate having to repeat myself, but obviously you aren't listening.

This. Doesn't. Work. Period.

There's nothing this thing can do that a virus can't, and if you add anything that does, it won't make sense, seeing as the varieties of viruses do just about every type of damage to a system imaginable. Computers are different from organic material, machines are relatively simple compared to a living organism. You don't need a damn Flood cyber-infection to take it over, or destroy it.

There's no nice way to put this, and seeing as I've tried just about everything to get you to open your eyes, I'm going to get blunt so you'll take it in.

Wake up. We write serious fanon here, which means that it's supposed to make sense. Not childish ideas that sound cool in foresight but are really just plain stupid. Get the message?

A cybermind is, how do I put this, a cyber lifeform. A virus with intellegance to match organic life. Its just a supercomplex computer virus to make things simple. - Echoes are all you hear... 14:55, June 20, 2010 (UTC)

Don't worry, Sona. I'm going to pull an overhall on this article to make it make sense. - - Echoes are all you hear... 15:15, June 20, 2010 (UTC)

well if by a cyber lifeform, you mean an artificial intelligence, therefore you should just say the Cybermind is an AI. Richard R. Hunt Buck 0 0 1.png Incoming Transmissions Outgoing Transmissions

technically. I guess some of the idea originates from those "Aurora Units" in Metroid Prime 3. - - Echoes are all you hear... 22:49, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

No, you don't get it. At this point, your options are to keep this unrealistic, make it godmodded, or delete it. It's best you delete it.

Enough. I'm stopping this argument now. This unit could potentially have some use, but in a different capacity than Echo is thinking, methinks. There is no point in continuing the argument.

@Echo; Do your overhaul, but make sure it's logical. If it still doesn't make sense, I have a couple of ideas that might help. Talk to me in an email or on the Irk.


Well, I finished the overhall about a week ago... so does it work? - Echoes are all you hear... 16:41, June 25, 2010 (UTC)

My only problem with this, is the part under "Present Day" seeing as the Ark has been destroyed, I would change "Present Day" to "Human-Covenant War" Richard R. Hunt Buck 0 0 1.png Incoming Transmissions Outgoing Transmissions

I'm sticking up for you, Echo!

  1. I edited most of the stuff you guys NCFed. So don't namespace it. - Echoes SpecHarness.jpg High Resolution Poor Quality 02:23, July 16, 2010 (UTC)

Namespace it Not

I fixed nearly all the stuff that was NCFed, and no one commented since. Why are is it being namespaced after weeks of nothingness on the NCF debate after I fixed the whole stinking article. - Echoes SpecHarness.jpg High Resolution Poor Quality 02:25, July 16, 2010 (UTC)

Shoulda told an admin that, bro. I'll take a look at it...

Got a few issues:

  1. An AI cannot be non-sentient if it still thinks like a sentient. It has to be sentient to do so.
  2. You don't use viral lifeforms in computers. You use software viruses.
  3. Computers all essentially operate on the same principle. The only real difference is in the software.
  4. A virus is simply a piece of code that changes existing parameters within a computer, whether it be to fuck with programs, the OS registry, or simply send data to a certain location, they all operate in essentially the same way. It is impossible to hide that bit of code. The problem with locating viruses is to know what kind of code to look for.

Honestly, the idea is cool, but you've got some issues with it that make it NCF. Fix them, and you're good.

But might I just say: This is a bloody slow virus.

Okay, I think I fixed most of this NCF stuff. Check it please, and give me anything else that is needed to be corrected.

Also, I think the concept of a "cybernetic viral lifeform" is basically an AI. If you take out the word viral, it is a cybernetic lifeform, which is anything that is "living" within a computer, like a UNSC SMART AI. I may be wrong with this. - Cprl.
