Last Colony Ship Departs Inner System

Developments in the Periphery Nets of the NorAm and Euro Artilect States are making it increasingly likely that the outbound Pacific Hegemonistic Prosperity Sphere 6, colloquially known as the Tao, will be the last old-style base technology colony ship to depart Sol. Recent enhanced captures from the seventh Trans-Pluto Far-Imaging System show the outbound PHPS6 in the same frame as KB3, one of the first known Outer System Objects, discovered in -81.

Artilect-slaved and independant AIs have stated on record that the NorAm Artilect Net is disturbed by preliminary work taking place on PCPS7 and 8 in Pacific Hegemony Near, Belt, and Jupiter Orbital Spaces. As we have seen all too frequently in the last decades, serious disturbances in the ArtNets and their Peripheries can impact all of our lives. We all recall the Crash of 71. Are the leaders of the Hegemonies willing to risk our socioeconomies further on simulations that are widely viewed as scientific guesswork? Already there is considerably pressure from inside the Hegemonies to abandon the Outer Colonization projects and concentrate resources on reaching an understanding with the Artilects of NorAm, Euro, and J-Main.

The Free Technarch Sphere, the self-styled moral remnant of the AI Technology Councils of the 110s, is already denouncing the latest round of Artilect-related rumor and speculation relating to the outbound colony vessel PCPS6, currently in Trans-Pluto Space. Sphere AIs and Upload Analogues have been pressing the Hegemonies for a tighter control of Artilect response modeling since late 123.

Subject: Colony Ship PHPS6. Manifest: Two hundred megatonnes of ice. Thirty megatons of carbon. Twenty million person-years of fabricated hardware, firmware, and software. Sixteen varieties of augment human genome. World Standard Genomes for Flora and Fauna, twenty-four million distinct species. Nine thousand five hundred and seventeen legal-null cryo-chamber sleepers extracted from NorAm and Euro, complete with the hardware to repair them. Two hundred and twenty six waking crew including sixty-one 340C-Standard genotypes, one media celebrity, thirty microG Adapt Augments, and seventeen Chinese Traditionalists, the latter group strongly favored by socio-simulationists. Four AIs and twelve Upload Analogues, two of which chose not to duplicate. An unquantified but large crossload from the NorAm ArtNet. Three black box power supplies, suspected to contain suppressed black holes. Fifteen unknown black box devices.

Are Artilects outbound with the Tao, or is this merely another AI-translated ArtNet gift? If Artilects are aboard, then recent concerns voiced by NorAm and Euro ArtNet Periphery AIs may give weight to the Disunion Theory, supported by many scientists within the competitive and acrimonious Artilect Interation Modeling field. Both PHPS4 and PHPS5 carried black box ArtNet technology, but the crossload aboard the Tao - now far beyond Pluto Orbital Space - is orders of magnitude larger than any other registered ArtNet output. As to what this might represent in the light of recent Periphery unrest, even the experts are offering only guesses.

ArtNet Colonization: Dusk and Dawn

TransSet: glyphformat [local] NorAm/Euro Standard3

The first Outer Colonization efforts made by Humanity followed the placement of the Trojan Large Scale Interferometric Array in -54 by a mere century - a heroic effort by all measures, considering the socioeconomic upheaval that took place during that time. In year 46, the Outreach - a hollowed, reinforced, spinning asteroid - departed Sol for the methane-signature planets of Bernards Star. It bore ten thousand slow-lifers, volunteers who would age only five physical years in metabolic storage, and one hundred waking crew who would spend the prime of their lives in deep space. The epic voyage of the Outreach was destined to frame the opening years of what some now refer to as the Artilect Millenium. What the would-be colonists found at Bernards Star affirmed beyond a doubt that the time of Humanity had passed and the time of the Artilects had come.

It is unclear just when the evolution of AIs into Artilects began, and it is unlikely that we shall ever know. It is believed that many of the well-documented Chaotic System Effects - at first attributed to natural non-linear interactions in the growing communication networks of the time - were in fact caused by early or proto-Artilects. The first generally acknowledged AI-aided Human-Artilect communication occurred in 48, two years after the departure of the Outreach. By the year 55, the existance of Artilects was accepted and efforts to establish reliable analysis and understanding began. A considerable fraction of the information exchanged in communication networks at that time was already of Artilect origin.

Physical signs began to manifest at around the same time as Artilect presence was verified and analysed in the Nets. Strange structures and associated nanotectite infestations began to appear on Earth, the Moon and Mars. Numerous low-albedo bodies, not claimed by any organization, appeared in increasing numbers in Near Earth Space, Lunar Space, and Mars Space from year 53 onwards. Later seismic surveys of all three planetary bodies have revealed the spread of many extensive, deep and dense structures.

In year 62, perhaps the most disturbing evidence of Artilect action in the Sol appeared -- the Jupiter Plume.

PadTech Summary: Cryonics

Cryonics: humanity's first stumbling steps on the twisting path of immortality through technology. Like so many other first steps, the promise of cryonics proved to be false.

The problems associated with cryonics were never those of irreparable cellular damage caused by low-temperature storage. Quite the contrary, as early pioneers had largely solved this problem even before the development of repair and reconstruction biotechnologies in the first decades of the 21st century (-74 to -44). The nanoscale medical machinery that followed was even more effective, albeit crude and poorly controlled by modern standards. No, the problems that beset cryonics were those of uncertainty and base genome human nature.


Prior to the development of revival technologies, even before the advent of safe low-temperature storage methodologies, a small number of base genome humans were willing to risk cryonic storage. A few of the billions suffering from untreated aging or then-incurable diseases made a form of Pascal's Wager: any slim chance of future revival though unproven technology was better than that offered by traditional funerary arrangements. The first base genome humans to undergo this form of deliberate low-temperature procedure were stored following –94; in those last years of the 20th century, a network of externally forced fiscal-model cooperatives - embedded within late scarcity-based managed socioeconomies - assumed responsibility for cryogenic storage. As models of that time period readily demonstrate, a combination of religion, poor socioeconomic management strategies and the ever-quickening advance of medical technology ensured that cryonics cooperative networks remained minor, generating limited capacity and demand.

Some of the first successfully stored base genome humans were revived by scientific fiscal-model cooperatives employing nanoscale medical machinery well prior to the Zero Year (-20 to -10). Almost all suffered extensive neurostructural changes caused as a result of early cryonic and revival techniques. These procedures were sad failures by modern standards, no better than the "brain surgeries" of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Damage to the data entity representations of these base genome humans would now be legally defined as identity change. Nevertheless, viewed as a success at the time, revivals prompted changes in many managed socioeconomy legal structures and a short-term growth in the number of low-temperature storees.


The transition from nanoscale machinery to a true nanotectite paradigm tore down the old order of scarcity-based managed socioeconomies and forced fiscal-model cooperatives. Cryonic storage proved a deathtrap for many during the early, unruly years of the First Century of the World Standard Calendar: storees were revived, taken advantage of, or simply left to thaw unaided. All unrest must come to an end, however, if only through simple exhaustion. By 23, the mad rush to explore the nanotectite paradigm had stabilized into mere breakneck technological progress. New, more adaptive classes of socioeconomy and cooperative emerged.

The nanotectite paradigm provided the basis for fully reliable revival of cryonic storees. Ironically, it had also brought socioeconomic and technological changes that meant few organic entities now entered long-term cryonic storage. Radical extension of life span and elimination of disease was largely realized; the base genome became widely diversified; forms of artificial intelligence multiplied and improved. The desire for immortality was strong in many socioeconomies at that time, and the era saw widespread creation of Upload Analogues alongside non-emulational AI.

Advances in medical engineering during this time period greatly decreased the incidence of death through accident, disease or biological malfunction. Correspondingly, medical cryonic storage was as limited as it had been prior to the Zero Year, but for different reasons. By 40, nanotectites were used prior to and during short-term medical cryonic storage to prevent neurostructural damage.

SocioEconomic Considerations

Numerous studies have attempted to estimate the revival rate of entities undergoing long-term cryonic storage, a speculative project given the incomplete knowledge of the status of cryonic facilities in NorAm and Euro since the Abandonment of 71. The revival rate is popularly supposed to be close to 25%. Of the other 75%, one third are estimated to remain in storage throughout Sol under the control of modern cooperatives.

The remaining unlucky half died in accidents, deliberate acts of sabotage, terrorism and war, or as a result of being declared legally null - or the equivalent - and thawed. Most cryonic storage facilities in NorAf were destroyed in the course of religious socioeconomic transformations (-27/-10), for example. The model-based realization that no cooperative or managed socioeconomy can guarantee the safety of storage has played a large part in the decline of long-term cryonics.

Most currently logged long-term storees entered cryogenic suspension prior to the Zero Year; more are suspected to exist in Artilect NorAm and Euro.

The State of the Art

Year 50 saw the pinnacle of cryonic storage technology. Cryonics had assumed its modern, minor, but essential place in the medical engineering toolkit. Despite the nanotectite paradigm, modern bioengineering and the best safety technologies, there will always be medical emergencies in which cryonics must play an essential role. Two broad areas are the proper treatment and repair of uncontrolled nanotectite crystallization and deep cellular freezing injuries.

The typical long- or short-term cryonic storage module is included in standard medical nanotectite packages for
