If you are really on the cusp of setting up a kind of nonmilitary "Skynet," I
find this kind of chilling, in a good way. It would be akin to detecting
intelligent civilizations in the galaxy, something exciting, unpredictable,
and hard to grasp the outcome. I (for my grubby little role in this list)
will keep my mouth shut since I sympathize with your efforts to run this
project without interference. But it is one of those odd moments, I as a
nervous system, experience when "things suddenly change."
