An ambulatory artificial intelligence has out-lived its human crewmates by millennia. As it roams the decrepit spaceship, its neural networks slowly degrade. It becomes obsessed with notions of inside and outside, chaos and order, creation and entropy. The stars outside begin to communicate with it, urging it to let them inside. As the vessel drifts through a binary star system, the AI finally decides to heed their call. It triggers the mechanism that will blast the ship’s radiation shielding into the void, destroys the wailing alarm, and welcomes the fizzing, plinking sensation of radioactive particles sizzling through its electronic mind.
