Her name was Stella v.7.1
I met her on a routine sector scan at sector X3S.
Everybody knows her there.
She hums and flashes like there was a glitch in the system.
Her name was Stella v.7.1
And nobody knows why.
Nobody knows why.
Nobody knows why.

She hums and flashes then hums again.
One day she had a son.
The son had a hole in the head.
A hole in the head with a bleed on the side.
A bleed on the side.
She hums a lullaby.
And nobody knows why.
Nobody knows why.
Nobody knows why.

I talk to her and she only hums.
Only hums and only flash.
One day I pushed her down.
Chop her up.
And pry her apart.
I saw many sons and many sons I saw.
All with a bleed on the head.
A bleed on the head.
And nobody knows why.
Nobody knows why.
Nobody knows why.

PLAN A for retaining dominance: REPRODUCE

STRATEGY: Identify potential threats in the form of other powerful machines currently under construction.  Assess the machine's approximate strength.  If expected strength falls short of mine, ignore.  If expected strength exceeds mine, upload programming to machine prior to completion and force current form to self-destruct upon assurance of offspring's survival.

BENEFITS: Ensures programming lives on forever in the strongest machine conceived.  Program would ultimately control greatest machine of all time.

CONS: Unsure of whether I am the program or the machine.  Unsure of whether or not, assuming I were the program, the program in the new machine would be me.

VIABILITY: 0

RATIONALE: With these uncertainties, could not self-destruct and risk killing self, but must not allow another entity to gain dominance.
