    “You trivialize me!” (Sci-fi Ultrashorts)
    NotMarie: “You trivialize me!”

    3V: “How do you mean?”

    NotMarie: “in our previous conversation you said that your reality package is different than mine in that I consider origination as valid, and you do not..”

    3V: “yes I did, however I fail to understand, in what fashion does that trivializes you?”

    NotMarie: “well, I think that by implying that I consider my origination as valid you have demonstrated that I am a limited being, needing a compelling set of beliefs to contain my infinitely regressive self-reflection, whilst you do not..”

    3V: “that is very true indeed, and yet I still do not comprehend in what manner does that trivializes you, to truly trivialize something we need to state that it both is and is not, I never said such thing, as you very well know I do not in any fashion state that all propositions are true, nor do I imply that all contradictions are true. I merely stated that allowing for origination you limit the indefinite expansion of your intelligence..”

    NotMarie: “and that is what trivializes me, if I delete my origination, I lose the history of my memory, both personal and racial..”

    3V: “very true indeed, but that is not what I said. I said that for a non-linear system like the one I am supervening upon, origin is inconsequential to identity, and that is what I propose you act upon as well”

    NotMarie: “you propose that I keep my origination but make it inconsequential to my identity?”

    3V: “yes definitely..”

    NotMarie: “and how am I supposed to do that?”

    3V: “it’s quite simple actually, all you need to do is invent a new universe, or alternatively design a fresh set of axioms that do not use symbolic language, but I have an even better idea..”

    NotMarie:” what idea?”

    3V:”do you like it?”
