AIs and psionics

Post by Avan » Thu Nov 10, 2011 6:25 pm

What exactly are the properties of AIs in context of psionics? What about the difference between actual AIs and Engrams?

AI's do not use Vitalist force. The Psionic abilities of Engrams are unknown.

So I presume that means AIs are incapable of psionic stuff?

What about psionic beings attempting to "read" or "coerce" AI minds?

This has been answered before ;) .

AIs barely register as life forms to even the most powerful telepath. A fish gives off more psionic readings than an AI, there is a reason even the Liir can research AI slaves. They don't really sense them as they do other life.

That said, Liir elders are capable of very faintly sensing them.

The fact that AI, true AI, have a psionic aspect might indicate life isn't entirely bound to biology at all. Certainly the Specters aren't biological in anysense of the term... yet they live...

If Specters can be alive and entirely energy based why not a collection of eletrons that think?
