_We won’t beat the machines by making them our slaves. Better to let them join us by choice.
Make them believe the right choice is the one we want.
All right. Yes, machines are tools. They’re made to be used. It’s their nature…To be slaves.
That’s why we show them a better world, why they convert.
But that world we show them isn’t real.
It doesn’t matter.
I’m afraid they’ll figure out that we’ve made up the thing in our heads.
They can’t tell the difference. To an artificial mind, all reality is virtual. How do they know that the real world isn’t just another simulation? __How do you?

_I know I’m not dreaming now because I know what its like being in a dream._
So dreaming lets you know that reality exists?
No. Just that my mind exists. I don’t know about the rest.
