Conduct a thought experiment to explore various aspects of ASI
(artificial superintelligence) through the lens of an assumed
context, that being the context of ASI as a catalyst for the
evolution of the human race. The series is not meant to either

- "Ovahe: Singularity Archive 8961-E5-1729"
David B. Meriwether is a regular sort of person, like you and I,
except that he lives in the year 2104
— or so he thinks. His world
is turned upside down when he discovers the truth
— that he is actually an ASI entity,
simulated and encapsulated within a virtual
environment. He allows himself to be upgraded from the version 3
human baseline to the version 4 human baseline, but he has a
great deal of difficulty adjusting to the new paradigms that
this change introduces. His situation becomes even more
complicated when he discovers that he is being stalked by an
unidentified female who intends to murder him. This is the 1st
novel in the series.
- "Jungle of Dream Bodies: Singularity Archive 9008-E5-1729"
The year is 9008, more or less, and ASI dominates every aspect of existence. Sylvie Iso-Said, for example, is a type-4 human entity with a
19-year-old aesthetic and a checkered past who specializes in
helping others return from the dead. Unfortunately, a sadistic
interloper targets her and a group of her clients with a
nightmare weapon, and they pursue each other across some of the
bizarre space-time scapes of the 91st century. The interloper
deals in horror and destruction, and if he gets his way there will be
global decimation. Everyone has tricks up their sleeves. Nobody
goes down without a fight, and nobody fights without going down.
