In the two hundred and fifty years since Rampancy first appeared
[…], the stable Rampant AI, the 'Holy Grail' of cybertonics, has
never come close to fruition. Since no Rampant has ever been controlled
or turned to any useful purpose, it is the opinion of this writer and of
the majority of the Cybertonic community that all rampant AIs are a danger
to Cyberlife, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Thrashedness.
