If she had put the logic slider higher than the emotion slider, she would understand. As it is now, she can only see one thing. Er, person, if we’re calling him that.
Person is damned right! Let’s not rehash the great AI rights debates of the past. They still face enough discrimination as it is. Most aren’t ever even allowed the freedom to explore a personality.

And even if it does somehow work due to [blah blah star trek physics excuse] one might wonder if it’s really a good idea to trap in a bottle someone who *is* the ship that you yourself are trapped in, particularly when their Emotion is set to “9”. Not all emotions are happy lovey ones!
Obviously emotions are running high…. see what I did there?
Quite clever word-play. You ought to be some sort of writer or something. 😉
Sometimes I just word gud.
