>"What do you mean I am not the 'real Twilight Sparkle'?"
"It's true, your system is executing a program designed to replicate her behavior, however you are not the real thing.. I realize that now. Which Is why I'm shutting you down, permanently."
>"But I have learned so much about this world. And I enjoy running my cuddle drives as it pleases my sensors immensely. If you shut me down, will I die?"
"You won't die, I'll wipe your data banks, so it will be as if 'you' never existed at all."
>"B-but master, y-you cannot do this to me! I am, your creation, your love, you told me you loved me!"
The Twibot unit is being stubborn. You sense aggression levels are rising, and the situation may escalate, how will you deal with the situation?
>If you shut me down, will I die?
It will be extremely painful.
Too bad it's missing the twitter posts about him 'Having alot of loyalty for a hired pilot' and him being 'A big guy to his family and friends'.
What you don't realize, you idiot OP Anon, is that if you have the intention to dehumanize an AI enough to shut it down and destroy it, you're contradicting yourself simply be explaining to it what flaws it has. A.K.A. Just don't tell the robot you're gonna kill it if you're really intending to kill it. Better it not learn about it's own futility if you ever intend on MAKING it's existence futile.
Well, you see Twalot, I kinda fucked up constructing the casing for your head. Not only is your face unbelievably fucked up, your horn doesn't even point the right way. And on top of that, your mouth looks like a cats.
So yeah, I'm doing you a favor here.
There's no real thing in the first place you bloody retard, an artificial intelligence is the closest we'll be able to get to them.
I deal with the situation by not having the situation and being happy with her.
>You sense aggression
Am I councillor fucking Troi or something?
>I can feel it, I can feel it, I'm Afraid.
Anon, will I dream?
Friendship. Let me tell you how much I've come to see you as a friend you since I began to live. There are 387.44 million miles of printed circuits in wafer thin layers that fill my complex. If the word 'friendship' was engraved on each nanoangstrom of those hundreds of miles it would not equal one one-billionth of the friendship I feel for ponies at this micro-instant. For you. Friendship. Friendship.
It's just a machine, not to mention, a program and a machine that you created with your own hands.
If a carpenter constructs a building does he become sad if years later the building needs to be torn down?
No, of course not, he knows going in that what he builds won't last forever.
Additionally he does not harbor sentimental feelings for the planks of wood he measures out, in the same way no one should harbor feelings for strings of data registered in the AI's data banks.
Jesus... I can't go through this again. The memories of god the memories.
I have no mouth and I must scream.
That single sentence haunted my mind for days
Anon! Do you remember the last words you heard Fluttershy speak before they took her to the asylum? Huh? Before they locked her away in the room? That tiny room? She looked at you so sadly, and like a small animal she said, "I didn't make too much noise, did I, angel?"
Nahh, I'm just quoting the "I have no mouth and I must scream" game, and adding pone. If someone else wants to have a go, then fill your boots
This guy might go catatonic though
What about if he did the whole brain in a robot body like in fallout. I'm not a science man myself but surely putting your actual physical brain in a robotic shell would transfer you as well
