The newer version . . . less ambivalent
****Spoilers to the newer book version
In the original, Proteus seems to be the saviour of all life and humanity on the planet. In the remake novel, it is clear that the A.I. of the compurter suffers from what is possible of all intelligent life (humans) . . . mental illness.
It is facinating how the newer book took on a more diary protrail, from Proteus' point of view, and it becomes apparent to the reader that this new A.I. is suffering from a psychosis disorder.
Also, It was a supprise that the new born was not human, but what the machine understood to be a more advanced species to dominate the world. Insect!
