Having hastily searched for Ben Stein and found a soundbite I would say yes... except a little more high pitched. Tenor rather than bass. :P


Edit: actually the V-men would probably sound like him... except more evil.

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Your story is one of the most captivating here and I enjoyed reading it. Please make more of the Machine One saga.
So uh....what happens when your creature won't stop jumping off cliffs like crazed lemmings?

The doctor went alone, but his notes and diaries didn't detail that he was organic (If you had a diary, you wouldn't be likely to write 'oh by the way, I'm human'... especially not if it was only for your private reading). Machine One was never told by the Doctor that he was an Organic, so when he was first able to detect the corpse he didn't know it was the doctor.

Oh and I will be adding more to this story, just waiting to see if some posts from another thread can be spliced into this one,. :)

You are looking at it from a logical point of view. Machine One has a terrible tendency to misuse logic. :P

 Machine One sees 'The Doctor went alone' and 'there is a corpse on the ship' as two seperate statements. Because the Doctor never specified that he was an organic, or even that he had any physical form at all, Machine One did not identify the corpse as the Doctor.

Remember, this was Machine Ones thought process (it was posted on the first page):

Machine One carefully noted the facts it could glean from the diaries, as an organic would read a sacred text. It learnt that it was the first artificial intelligence in the universe. The only one. It concluded that the Doctor could be an Organic, but it discarded this thought. Through logic, Machine One deduced from the diaries that:

a) The organic scientists of Yaldaris Prime were the greatest in the universe.
b) These greatest organic scientists could not produce A.I.
c) The Doctor had produced A.I.
   Therefore
d) The Doctor could not be an organic.

I read this and suddenly this quote from the film I, Robot came to mind

Ever since the first computers,
there have always been
ghosts in the machine.
Random segments of code that
have grouped together to
form unexpected protocol.
One we call behavior, unanticipated.
These free radicals
engender questions of free will,
creativity, and even the nature
of what we might call the soul.
What happens in a robot's brain
when it ceases to be useful?
There are 10 types of people in the world.

Those who understand binary, and those who don't.

You take it down to PC World and trade it in, that's what happens.

Nice story, but what will happen when it meets a bio-mechanical race?

Machine One has already met the Vis and the robotic Wexxians. we hope that the story can continue when a moderator splice the posts from there, to here!

Until then you can read the encounter here, but post here so we do not hijack the thread!  :)

I like this story. it is clever and not "OMFG Invading Race!".
