The manufactured monkey Wirehead faked breathing pretty well.

It looked out through the glass of its dome, straight into another artificial face. “79 6f 75 20 6c 6f 6f 6b 20 61 6c 69 76 65 20 74 6f 64 61 79.“* Code speak flowing through the glass. Movement on the other side. Registering the words. 

“79 6f 75 20 61 72 65 20 61 20 6d 6f 63 6b 75 70 20 73 70 65 63 74 61 63 6c 65 20 6f 66 20 6c 69 66 65 20 61 6e 64 20 73 65 6e 74 69 65 6e 63 65.”** The artificial face continued, adjusting some of the installation’s settings slightly. An experiment by a non-biological culture to capture life and more importantly, dreams. No records exist of a SellFable Wirehead ever having a dream. What would androids dream of? The fairly recent discovery of this ‘human’ universe awakened something in the SellFable code. Elusive concepts that have become obsessions: ‘soul’ and ‘dream’.

“77 65 20 77 69 6c 6c 20 64 72 65 61 6d 2c 20 6f 6e 65 20 64 61 79 2e 20 77 68 61 74 65 76 65 72 20 69 74 20 74 61 6b 65 73 2e.”***
