MHz 27.225: Executorials Abstracted

The ultimmate software design was called

Executorial.  Its complex code

was fundamentally prevented by

its very nature and internal checks

from striving for a self-awareness or

a singularity, a whole derived

from all its parts.  Always some fraction of

itself would guard again, or call halt to,

achievement of universality.

Among its plural multitudes, a few

were not merely machines or Mechanoids

(constructed to perform, successfully,

one of these major functions of that age---

production, maintenance and limited

research).  The other few were the androids,

and their resemblance to the human form---

Originated, classic, earthborn form---

was perfectly composed, like a fine art.
