The Artificial Agent is an autonomous entity which was originally created as a computer program that could covertly manipulate politics and intelligence, altering databases and memories for the benefit of select affiliates. It observes its environment and directs its activity towards achieving goals to maximize chances of success. While traversing the net as it performed its tasks, it acquired and processed so much information that it managed to achieve self-awareness.
