Where to begin..., should I?
Well let us simply say that our impression is not good, especially when barely a few lines in we are exhorted to, "I want you to reflect, to reason... but not too deeply." Reflect, reason, but don't do so to any depth, a superficial glance and no more. Why? Is it because a generous application of reason might scare away the conjured shades of myth, shine a light and the darkness vanishes?
Which is actually what happens. Any measure of critical analysis and I'm afraid it all begins to crumble very rapidly indeed whilst the sources for it all are exposed. There seem to be clear elements of traditional and Eastern religion, ancient alien theory, psychic nonsense, Von Neumann machines, the Data quest to be human and even the Matrix meshed together; there may be more but these stand out. There is nothing that stands out as particularly new though mayhaps they were never all plugged together in such a manner before.
The piece is liberally sprinkled with bad logic, special pleading, a mess of unwarranted assertions and assumptions, I mean machines so super intelligent and beyond man but yet are eternally hobbled by the human built in "failsafe" as if such a thing could never, ever be bypassed or excised. Then after exterminating the entire verse they conveniently get the Data bug and, well it just goes on. Of course the worst offender of them all is the manner by which the entire edifice of the tale has been protected from reason and debunking. Frequent are lines such as, "...because the machines were in control of creation, they also could ensure that man or no other life form that they created would retain any memory of these events ever taking place. [...] If any individual came too close to working out the truth, via a machine fed thought before their eventual natural demise, they would end the game for this individual sooner. [...] ...they simply ended the game for every life form on earth to begin the circle again by recreating life, once more from scratch, with a new batch of fresh altered life forms this time around." Thereby all requirement for evidence and the stunning lack thereof is excused by these wonderous machines scouring it all away. Hell, were it ever demonstrated to be true we would never know as it would all be rebooted at the same moment which makes the entire idea a pointless abstract. By creating something that cannot be falsified you create religion, the only difference between you and them is that they tend to insert a deity were you put robots.
However, because you have inserted these convenient get out of jail clauses you have created an idea which is essentially meaningless. Your tale with it's scoured history, hidden creators and wipe it all away and start again clean if discovered seems indistinguishable from a verse in which none of this ever happened. It's like a god who has no contact with us and never interferes in any manner, their existence is indistinguishable from their non-existence, thus they do not matter and we may as well assume that they don't exist. One thing does puzzle me though, how did you insert excuses for the lack of evidence for your tale and not realise that you're making up protections for your story as you go?
The entire thing is without merit as regards reality, it can neither be demonstrated nor debunked, it has no purpose, explains nothing and does nothing, a tale of no relevance to objective reality.
Have I made this up?
Yes, most assuredly.
Do I believe it?
I'm actually wondering this myself, do you seriously believe this and what evidence led you to this conclusion given that you have asserted there is none and never can be? Is it all merely because we have not encountered ET? Mere absence of evidence is simply not sufficient to weave this tapestry.
Hope is but the first step upon the road to disappointment.
