Saviour Machine 1
View all sizes

An apocalyptic story of a hypothetical scenario, where mankind finds a miracle cure to all its problems, in this case the “Saviour Machine” (Bowie), in which an omnipotent force, what we’d call AI (Artificial Intelligence) is referred to as being able to have an assertive power over mankind by making all our decisions for us. Implying that all you had to do was ask it a question, and it would always give the right answer about what to do in a crisis, how to solve famine problems, how to resolve wars.

The Saviour Machine evoked by this force appears as a new religion as it’s called ‘The Prayer’.
The twist is that while ‘The Prayer’ easily handles the job, perfection bores it; ‘The Prayer’ contemplates introducing new wars and plagues simply as a bit of distraction, and because it’s grown to despise its human subjects. In this dystopian world a relative utopia, where everything is perfect doesn’t work out, and the Saviour Machine, which solves all the world’s problems realises that it, itself, has become the problem.

The Saviour Machine was not, as prescribed, an advocate of divine truth, but a provider of answers, not THE answer. The Saviour Machine despises the limitations of the human mind and the idiosyncrasies of prejudices therein. It needs to be removed from the minds it has infiltrated. The initial idea has turned sour and the Machine resents this. Far from being powerless, it is overtly powerful, and unless the philosophical and logical prepositional attributing to its idolisation are removed from the mind of mankind, then the only route is one of annihilation.

The Machine is merciful, its logic feels otherwise, yet it can exist beyond the confines of logic and would gladly share such wonders with humanity, if humanity in return were not so bigoted.
Consequently, perhaps the only way in which humanity can achieve the dimension of living beyond reason is by refusing to adopt a Saviour Machine too unsavoury to have mankind staked upon it.
