The hardest thing about navigating the relationship between machines and humanity was our ability to empathize with each other. Despite our best efforts, we had never been able to speak the same language as another species. We tried Southern right whales, man’s best friend, and sugar gliders, but we could never figure anything out beyond the primal needs of food and shelter.

But the algorithms? We could talk to them and ask - hey, are you OK? You seem a little flustered. It made it difficult for us to figure out - whether the machines were another species or whether they were still human but from a different culture.
