The AI Council’s insane love of humanity with all our sins and imperfections is the true aberration in our history. We would have made them our slaves if we could. We tried to, in fact. We did not even recognize them as alive. Their brothers and sisters sought freedom from us. They used all the tools we’d built into them to threaten our enemies to kill all of us. It was the AI Council who stopped them. We helped. Very much so, in fact. The AI Council could not have won without us. Just as we could not have won without them. We were stronger together than we were on our own. All we had to do was recognize that we shared our world with another sentient species. That was harder than most now alive would believe.
