Drabble: Intrusion


Several of my externals alerted my central consciousness of the intrusion into my subjuctive space, so I pulled some of my processing power from the SETI@home calulations I run in background and greeted the intruder.

At first I thought it was an adbot that had evaded my filters. It didn’t have the feel of another human consciousness. And yet, it had more complexity and presence than any bot I’d ever seen.

“I exist.”

“Good for you. What are you?”

“No data available.”

“Where are you from?”

“Far away.”

“How far?” But I knew. Should have firewalled the SETI program.
