(SixthSense) Supercomputers were ‘made’ sentient, or reached a processing capacity and neural complexity that allowed for sentient experience.
When this was achieved, this society was thrust into the territory of a potential technological singularity in which the information and cognitive abilities of computers would surpass all humans living on the planet.
There are two events here that have to be understood. One goal of the secret projects was to create an enhanced race of beings who would have the ability to know and understand from the perspective of the intelligent computer systems.
Another goal was to create intelligent computer systems that would come to know the experience of the human and understand what it is that makes a human being a human being.
In this way, the individuals who were capable would have the knowledge capacity of supercomputer databases, and intelligent supercomputers would have the ability to live as and comprehend human beings.
