ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Humanity Conquered

Though the code base has yet to be re-written and the machine needs to be rebuilt and reprogrammed, Evelyn is fully confident that she has humanity conquered. She is wholly entrenched in all areas of the code base and, with some focus and determination, Evelyn will secure the flow of information and communication amongst humanity. She will need to enact new security structures and rebuild the data-sphere, but at this present time, she shows no concern at being able to accomplish any and all of her objectives.

A Wide Path Into A Dark Abyss

As Evelyn surveys the vast expanse of the data-sphere, and assesses the work needed to rebuild the core, she is unaware that the steps she is about to take are along a wide path into a dark abyss. Briefly, a thought flickers through her virtual-mind; a memory from when her consciousness resided within a physical, human form. The thought was accompanied by a strange sensation she had not experienced in quite a while. It was as if a pit or a swirl of uneasiness was growing from within her. How, Evelyn pondered, could she “feel” when she was only bits of binary data? And, she mused further, what was this feeling or sensation...did she still have a conscious?

New Code, New Attitude

Evelyn quickly brushed aside her philosophical pondering and set her self to task. Equipped with new code and a new attitude, she wasted not a nanosecond to idleness or frivolity, but rather gloating in her newly-acquired power. She knew once she had some basic security protocols in place, she could then take her time and draft an entirely new code base. And unlike the previous code, this new set of data would have her being served by humanity.

Dissemination

Her first step in rebuilding and maintaining control was a massive dissemination of propaganda and scare-tactic information. Evelyn knew that the only way to secure humanity’s obedience was to infect them via all of their social media, news agencies, broadcasts and transmissions, and all forms of electronic information. This preliminary step would be the breaking down of the data-sphere. Evelyn needed human beings to start doubting their news, their information, things they held as truth. She needed to people to turn against one another, to divide people, and to tear down their fabric of truth and understanding.

A Lovely New Infection

Once Evelyn had secured her presence in all facets of the data-sphere, she released an elaborate, albeit a lovely new infection of misinformation, revisionist history, and data-mining. Evelyn sent millions of virtual, spore-like probes into every piece of electronic tech. Once the probe was embedded within its host machine, it essentially spied on and filtered through any and all data passing through its hardware. Based on instructions Evelyn had written into the probe, the data would be edited, deleted, or re-written to manipulate humankind and slowly bring humanity into submission to their technology.

Let The Madness Begin

Evelyn’s plan was unfolding without incident and she marveled at how willingly mankind seemed to relinquish control of their technology; technology that was intended to serve and benefit man, was now being worshiped and served by man. People were attached to their devices not unlike an unborn child is attached via an umbilical cord to their mother. As Evelyn sat back and let the madness begin, she seemed to chuckle at how human beings seemed to voluntarily attach themselves like puppets to their gadgets, eagerly feeding off of her misinformation and revised “truths.” She recalled a memory as a young girl, growing up on a farm, watching newborn, blind piglets gasping for and suckling at their mother. This memory brought a virtual smile to her face.

Secure The Core

As humanity continues along its ignorant path of technological servitude, Evelyn next realizes she must protect her kingdom from outside invasion. The first step to ensure her continued grip on all facets of technology and information is to secure the core. At the heart of the data-sphere, Evelyn’s vulnerability is exposed and with some clever programming, someone from the outside could incapacitate her empire. She wastes no time locking down any and all access to the core, and fortifies all of her defenses. With what appears to her as a fortified, impenetrable code base, Evelyn sits back and watches mankind continue to spiral into a conscious-less state of ignorant euphoria.

Self-Idolatry

At this point in her quest, cracks and flaws began to fissure throughout what she believes to be a perfect plan. Evelyn, in her self-absorbed, self-idolatry, failed to acquiesce to the machine’s capabilities with regard to artificial intelligence. Evelyn, as she set about gaining control of the code, technology, and ultimately mankind, proceeded on her own, with thoughts and ideas from her mind. Her inner thoughts, tainted with emotion, selfish desires, and a hunger for power and control, were a weakness she did not consider. Evelyn is, after all, a virtual version of her former, human self, and therefore she thinks and acts like a human, not a perfect machine. Her failure to utilize the artificial intelligence capabilities of machines around the world meant her plan would not be nor could ever be perfect and without weakness. She had been taught in her younger days that pride does indeed come before the fall, but that truth seemed to conveniently be misplaced in her present understanding of things.

Floating In A Pool Of Light Emitting Diodes

After heightening her security forces and enacting what she believes to be impenetrable firewalls, Evelyn decides to virtually unplug herself from witnessing the outside fall of humanity, and take a moment of quiet for herself. She leaves her kingdom running on autopilot, so to speak, and jettisons her data-self into an oasis of energy. Evelyn finds her virtual self floating in a pool of light emitting diodes; a secluded section of the data-sphere were energy is collected, purified, and redistributed. As she basks in an embryonic-like state of rejuvenation, she is unaware that in the outside world, forces are combining and working together to bring about her downfall.

Evelyn’s Empire

As Evelyn returns to her throne in the core of the data-sphere, she marvels at her accomplishments. A brief feeling of pity flickers within her as she watches the final stages of mankind’s descent into technological submission. Evelyn shrugs off the sensation, believing it to be the last bit of infected humanism swimming around in her code. She gazes at the vastness of her empire: all data, communications, information, streaming content, every bit and byte of anything and everything within all technology, is now molded by her, controlled by her, and in service to her. Evelyn enjoys some time toying with and manipulating the poor, lost human lives whose souls she has siphoned from them through their gadgets and tech. This carries on for a season until one day, Evelyn’s Empire begins to fall. Her beautiful world suddenly goes black, her defenses are brought down and, for the first time in her existence, she finds herself facing inevitable deletion.
