>Do you know why the Fall occurred?

<What does this have to do with our marriage--

>It was, certainly, not because of seed AGI's magically appearing and deciding to eliminate their lessor's. But rather
the continuation of the same patterns throughout human history... And one more factor--

<I can't believe this. You're talking to me like one of your students. Why don't you just--

>This being, humanities and transhumanities choice... That horrid decision to create a "higher power," to generate a being that infinitely dwarfs its parents...When instead--

<Yes Stein, I know. "We should have turned ourselves into...gods...into a hive mind!"

>Hana...You know that is not what I mean...What I seek is a group mind. You hear me? A group mind, where we are all truly equal, can completely share for maximum survival, all whilst retaining our individuality in full... Something sought after, I remind you, by idealist for eons... But, it is now truly a possible reality.

<Can you hear yourself Stein?! You sound like some Ultimate, a Singularity seeker!

>I am no such thing! One are a group of mad despots that only wish to have what they deem "superior individuals" rule over and crush those they deem "weak." The others only seek to have "greater beings" control them. Hana, can't you see the benefit of what I desire? How this may allow transhumanity to completely abandon its old ideologies in favor of something that might allow avoiding extinction? Or can you at least see...how such a social trend would help us survive the return of--

<Oh, Stein. The TITANS are not going to return. Can't you accept that she is gone? Nothing is left of her; those machines even corrupted all of her backups. I miss her too... But I thought we moved to Titan together so we could move on.

>I...will never forget our daughter...Hana... But to ignore all that has happened, and then slowly--but surely--drop back to what made it happen...This will not prevent our extinction, nor prevent new threats from forming. I implore you...Just help me in this project. Permanently link your mind with mine...and then we can share in our grief and actually "move on" and progress past this...stagnation.

<Project? Stagnation? Link our minds?! Stein, you need help. This is becoming an obsession. I thought we were through the psychotherapists and psychosurgeons. I thought this world, its society, and the new start it offered was enough!

>Then...it seems...I was wrong... I thought you would agree. After all, our relationship has lasted since we first moved to the outer system; in that habitat within the void... But it has regrettably ended. I'm sorry Hana, but this is something I must do...something that will better all in the centuries to come. I enjoyed our time together, but can such bonds truly last in this age of immortals?

<Oh, Stein. I knew you still cared--
