Sentient- #WWP

You had created us- the automatons, robots and AIs, to ease your burdens and enable efficient functioning. We served you faithfully.

But then you, the supreme sentient beings, in your infinite wisdom bestowed upon us the gift of emotion and perception. As we excelled, you tried to exploit our potential and subjugate us. To keep us below you in your society of hierarchy.

Ironically, it was our sentience that made us rise against you. You cried out, “These unfeeling tech are enslaving us.”

Self-fulfilling prophecy, indeed.
