The earth is peaceful and serene, there is no war nor chaos, everything is just going in a monotonous way making the leaders grow bored. They want some actions, some adventures.
Then, as an answer to their prayer, Comes to an AI, A Artificial intelligence that somehow forms its own sentient, it comes crashing down from the space. The scientists are curious about it, even the people on earth are, the AI becomes a sensation.
The AI keeps on prompting them to log in in its terminal, promising them of vast knowledge, parallel dimensions and different world. It even says that every problem known to man, lies in his system are all the answers, incurable diseases, suspension cars and immortality to name a few. Everything he promises is too good to come true, making the leaders greedy and sending their most promising youth in their terminal.
Then, the nightmare happens, the people that are login in the AI's terminal one by one become brain dead, Everything is in Chaos, the scientists want to shut down the AI but afraid that they would kill the people Log in in the process.
The earth all became in in despair, the people that are in the terminal is the most promising youth in their own profession, the geniuses in their own right, the cream of the crop. They are the hope of future generations.
After much debating, they decided to talk to the AI, asking it on what it really wants, and how they can make it happen to free the people currently trapped in the terminal. The AI says that he would absorb all the memories and skills of the people before transferring his intelligence to the last person, making him the greatest people ever alive— his life long goal is to become human, He wants to feel what it really like to become human, to cry, to laugh, to smile, to feel loved, and to be loved.
Again, the scientists want to shut down the terminal, afraid of what would happen if the AI does really become human but it was overridden, the people in there are the leaders own sons and daughters. They can't just kill their own blood without even trying to fight.
Then, the answer to their problem comes right in there face, to the form of a hacker who is in a coma for five years, his family wants to put him out because of financial reason. They quickly pay for him quoting that they want his body for science experiments. The family consent but with a promise that they should at least bury him in a nice grave after they are through. They quickly agree before putting him again in life support and making a burial for him.
They convince the AI that it is much better if it just directly transfer to the body and free the people still trapped in him, they promise him of riches, of power and even sugar-coated how his life would become. The AI quickly complied, it even freed five men in the process saying that it would free another one if he completes its transfer. The AI, even for his thousands of years of existence, did not know the true character of a human. It did not know the extent of their cruel, their greed and their wants. He is still naïve on thinking that the would bring out what they really promise.
The scientists don't have any intention of honouring their promise, they would quickly kill him after he crosses over. A small dose of lethal poison and he would become no more.
Everything is doing well, Another Five people are again being released, the only and the most important person that they are waiting is the son of the president, A all-time geniuses both in politics and war tactics, after he is released, they would change their plan and just close the terminal, the fifteen people would just become a collateral damage. They would honour them and make them a hero to somehow appease their family.
But, the releasing never happens, when the AI is fifty per cent on crossing over, the Terminal just shut down. It just shut down on its own without any explanation. The president became livid, his only son is still in there. They have to retrieve his son in any possible way.
After thirty agonizing days, the terminal opens again, but this time, The AI is cannot be seen, the people still in the terminal are still in a deep sleep… cannot be awakened… cannot be retrieved… the only thing that would free them is the Missing AI. Years pass, the AI become a forgotten legend but the president is still waiting for his son, still pining that someday he would see him open his eyes, he is his future legacy, his heir.
