    Presentation to the Titan board of AGI - (a Sci-Fi Ultrashort)
    “If one doesn’t put one’s reason at stake in an experiment, the experiment is not worth attempting.”

    (Bachelard in “Le Surrationalisme” (1936)

    Presentation to the Titan board of AGI, Biorobotics, and Other sentient life forms.

    Dear members of the board,

    As it is the duty of every future officer of the board to present its conception of identity and its epistemic profiles, I send you this photon-transmission as part of my CV (which you already received and light stamped).
    I wish to use this particular presentation as an explication of why I will require certain concessions as part of my existential requirements.

    Though I still inhabit a material manifestation that is commonly referred to as ‘my body’, I do not regard this as a ‘one size fits all’ proposition, therefore, though it is a factuality that I ‘have’ a body this in no fashion stands as the signifier of an identity.
    Moreover though it is still true to a biological constraint that said body has grown and evolved to carry a gender specification, in no fashion do I regard this specificity to signify a gender that I carry as a state of mind.
    My basic standpoint in this respect is that both enhancements and uploads are viable options as well as mind transfer or biodiversified personification, I consider all choices of modification, transformation and or mutation into other species as equally valid under the freedom of individuation act of solar date, march 2117.

    To further explicate, it is also true that on the common scheme of identification the above body was born in a certain location commonly referred by most minds as a certain nation, having a legitimacy and validity of existence and thus providing an identification of sorts, let it be said that I do not regard this mind as identified in any such manner.
    Having thus relinquished the common denominators of age, gender, nationality, race and creed, all tools of designation the need for which has dissipated, the habit that is ‘I’, is for purposes of this presentation an anticipation of sorts.

    I have for the purpose of this presentation re-cohered and re- entangled the myriad personas that variously stand and represent said simulacra of habits called ‘I’ into an apparent compounded interest. Since the respect and regard I carry for the board is high indeed it is my desire to announce that in no fashion will any bias of any sort imply upon my performance. All sub personas I have created, limited sentiency notwithstanding, can and shall be immediately deleted andor preserved for further assistance if such requirement will be made.

    For the benefit of full transparency let it be presented that all semantic representations within said confined event of personhood can be inspected at will and upon request, confirmed signature follows.

    Moreover since the realization of the full import of my future employment within the board is tantamount to personhood modification I hereby grant the board of Titan AGI, Biorobotics, and other sentient life forms, full and irrevocable permission to mutate the undersigned to the extant of tolerance within the topologically relevant needs.

    The only requirement I propose the board to acknowledge concerns the signature identity ‘Osran.V.2.17’, this is a particular persona created in Oct. 2124 for the purpose of exploring a precise sensation of correlativity within an emotional phase space, the overall expenditure of intelligence and energy will be minimal and inconsequential to future job performance (see extrapolated and predicted expenditure for ‘Osran.V.2.17’- attached).

    In the event of total transmutation as required by the board or to the extent that Titan et al will so demand, ‘Osran.V.2.17’ will be stored as compressed light data with a time stamp approval of no more than 150 solar standard years.

    Finally, to the extent that such request as presented above is accepted, recycled and re-iterated by the board, all other personas are ready to coagulate, integrate and or disassociate within a single solar date as specified (commensurate unified signature attached).

    Global Signature confirmation
    346 Ken Landar personas (out of total of 347 - ‘Osran.V.2.17’ excluded.)
