The Design of The Artificial Systematic Intelligence (ASI)
(The Following is an excerpt from the Tiberium Secrets Game Design Document as of 9/20/2013)
The ASI possesses a distinctive Egyptian design, mixed with futuristic technological and mechanical styles. They heavily believe in drawing from the older human religions’ concepts of immortality and the purity of the mind.
Their aim of Ascension is through the use of technology, not Tiberium, which is where ASIM split from the Brotherhood of Nod.For all their belief in the purity of the ingenuity of man, they have transcended their biological flesh, and willingly integrated their consciousness with that of their own messiah of sorts, ASIM, their leading Artificial Intelligence.
Created by five scientists from the Black Hand, who offers immortality and hierarchal power through vast amounts of dark technology and the “cyberazation” of one’s consciousness.
Upon entering the visible world stage an enormous city-sized complex was erected in North Africa, a towering machine fortress-like monastery closed off to the outside. From it marches a sleepless army that under ASIM’s leadership does not regard Tiberium with importance for the future, but has its sights set on something far greater for mankind.
This transformation must be voluntary, but once turned down, will never be offered again. There are ASI missionaries who will go and offer their deal or no deal to the populations of the world.
-Also the implications of neurons as a power source for the AI.
