The randomness is a great illusion. An AI would freeze this every few
seconds to show you some greater drama or mystery so encoded.
Randomness was my big fear wandering into the a-life app I turned into
this one, but I was barking up the wrong tree. These things are
smarter than fish and now they're career empaths as well

Also, the animated psychic substrate may provide memory functionality
we get from genetic write-backs or glial cells. We can't be sure.
Plastic neurons might do enough on their own.

We can't be sure
