SciFi Writers Get To Make Up All The Cool Words

Zimboe - A zombie with no self-awareness, but programmed to cliam to be aware in an attempt to deceive the truly consciouis beings around it.

Sounds like A.L.I.C.E. I hate that bot purely because Dr. Wallace wanted it to pretend to be human. When I fiddle with bots if they ever say something about being human or sentient its because I have to build off of Wallace's foundation or have a bot that barely knows anything.

What's wrong with being human? Humans being the precedent for most intelligent thing, I would think that making a thing that is indistinguishable from a human is the first stop on your trip to post-human intelligence, wouldn't you? I mean, if you want to make things better than God can, you have to at least match his work first.
