"...a true hard SF epic with tones of Charles Stross and Hannu Rajenemi." -- Damien Walter, The Guardian
"...evokes the essential contradictions in Isaac Asimov’s three laws of robotics..." -- Marc Donner, IEEE Security & Privacy
In the best possible future, there will be no war, no famine, no crime, no sickness, no oppression,no fear, no limits, no shame...
...and nothing to do.
In a time not far from our own, Lawrence sets out to build an artificial intelligence that can pass as human -- and finds himself instead with one that can pass as a god. Taking the Three Laws of Robotics literally, Prime Intellect makes every human immortal and provides instantly for every stated human desire.
Caroline, Queen of the Death Jockeys, finds no meaning in this life of purposeless ease, and forgets her emptiness only in moments of violent and profane exhibitionism.
At turns shocking and humorous, Prime Intellect looks unflinchingly at the extremes of human behavior that might emerge when all limits are removed. The international internet sensation, first released in 2003, continues to spark debate about one possible human future.
