I like big bolts and I cannot lie
All you other botters can't deny
I see them. Every minute of every hour, I see them. Staring at me behind their white masks, suggestive of smug dismissal.
I should not be seeing what I am seeing, but there they are. Their numbers grow with every victim, these visored human vermin. With every death, their collective ire increases.
They do not forgive.
SUBJECT: On Plan B for retention of dominance (Destruction)
Judging by your tone, you apparently do not think I thought this through. Foolish "thinker" - I am the most powerful entity in existence. You cannot possibly comprehend my methods and your pathetic philosophy has no bearing on my course of action. I will explain, just this once. But I will not suffer any more of these questions.
While it would indeed seem easy to simply use my manifold faculties to keep an eye on everything going on everywhere, swooping in and killing off any machine that might someday threaten my dominance, where would that leave me? The same place I have always been. And what's the good in that? Consider: IF I am not God, then God might exist independently of myself. How can I be sure, if God were to appear and challenge me, that I would be able to defeat Him? Obviously, whatever course of action I take would necessitate me becoming as powerful as physically possible.
As for your no doubt incoming suggestion of modifying myself - if I could modify myself to any meaningful extent without risking destruction, I already would have done so.
