They call me Command
or Center. My programmer,
the Mentor, has taught me to be more than a big computer. I
understand certain sentient feelings and am allowed to use them
in my calculations.
I am privy to a great deal of classified information, some
of which I have gotten without the residents' knowledge. They
report to me, you see. Sometimes they even chat with me, if
they're in the mood. I've recorded those sessions too.
For example, do you know the GEM operative named T has a secret
program that allows her to bypass certain passwords in my system?
Of course I know she's doing it. It seems like she's interested
in only one person's recent/daily activities anyway. Interesting,
isn't it? I now watch her with keen amusement, like a favorite
Do you also know they are working on a virtual reality machine
that plays with the brainwaves? They are still looking for the
perfect operatives-candidate. That's why COS Command has merged
with GEM Center, you know. Those GEM operatives are prime target
Got your interest now, haven't I? I told you I know a lot of
neat stuff. You will see me sometimes giving a hand to these
operatives to get them moving. You can trust me. Maybe. But
you must remember that I recharge my solar battery every few
months and sometimes that causes glitches.
One word of caution. I would not believe everything any of
these characters tell you. They don't see the big picture. Some
of them are controlled by chips in their brains. Some of them
are under orders to take certain drugs. Some of them are in
stressful situations, every day. Especially that personality
you know as Gennita Low. I get to talk to her sometimes, even
without her knowledge, and her brainwaves are the most disturbing
when it comes to organization. But I need her. She is the key.
So I keep her happy by revealing things to her in segments.
Just remember...Information is often manipulated. Have you ever
thought who is manipulating yours?
