what do you mean by conscious? The machine needs to have a model of itself
to do any environment modeling and higher cognitive stuff. Though it doesn't
_need_ to have the human complex adaptations that make us react to
loneliness, abuse, etc.
If the machine has sensations (qualia) they will be very different from
ours, they will be qualia created by massive logic reasoning, which we
cannot imagine.

I don't see how you could really "piss it off".
