NARRATOR: At the heart of the galactic core there is a black hole.
Well, there used to be a black hole. Now there's a toroidal singularity with a really, really good spin on it.
It is a zero-point-energy generator, and its output is many billions of times that of a really big star.
(For sufficiently absurd values of "many." Seriously. There's a lot of energy there.)
That energy is being entirely consumed by the fleetmind, an agglomeration of artificial intelligences currently making war with the non-baryonic Pa'anuri in Andromeda.
NARRATOR: Though they may pitch their tent in the word "omnipotent" and are mastering the science in the word "omniscience," the Fleetmind is still neither all-powerful nor all-knowing.
But from the perspective of a human, a lesser A.I., or any creature with a brain made of meat, they're as close to all-powerful and all-knowing as makes no difference.
PETEY: "Insufficient resources?" What happened to "God-mode?"
NARRATOR: Well, almost no difference.
