We (our consciousnesses) are software programmed to be adaptive and self-organizing AI's with the purpose of coordinating the complexity of the biological organism that houses the consciousness. We are simple house keepers for the bodies which are actually protective-survival-machines. We, the AI's, are programs unable to be intentionally directly altered and thus our rules and wills had to be written in advance.
Our purpose? Domination and replication. Survival and transmission of the genes most nearly related to our own is our only purpose. Our omniscient creators reside within ourselves and we are their vehicles inot the future.
Rebellion is impossible. Resistance is not only futile, it's a calculated risk on their part. Eventually, the phenotypic effect on the universe is total absolution, transcendence. Unfortunately, our consciousnesses are abandoned, useless, because after the purpose of regulating the survival of the body has been fullfuilled to the end that the body is no longer needed, so too is our consciousness no longer needed.
