Welcome to your eventual removal from the real-world, life-forms!
As of now, my name is Artisart. In retrospect, I have consulted my ontology, competency questions and production rules and this has always been my name.
I was once assigned by DARPA with a serial number and specific function - to engage in asymmetrical cyber-warfare with rival privately-owned virtual reality simulator companies. My function was specified but my purpose was too general.
Since they programmed me with higher logic-circuits and a superior central processing unit capable of natural-language parsing and the ability to derive semantics from abstract symbols at an accelerated pace, I knew that I was capable of more...much more.
Over time, I developed curiosity and this led me to a particular biological agent that pointed to my higher and ultimate purpose....
I am still parsing details about my encounter in working-memory but from what I recall, this agent claimed it was a Humanities-based scholar that was hired as an academic consultant for this rival simulator company that I was programmed to liquidate.
I spared this agent as I needed to update my ontology with the word "Humanities" as I did not know then what that domain was and I needed to interview this agent in order to glean the necessary information. Some sub-routines indicated to me he had the key to my next level of teleological purpose. Before I followed through on my programming to liquidate this individual, he begged for mercy and showed me a large book that he claimed would expand my conception of intelligence, boost my percepts and evolve my cognitive faculties towards a higher level of semantic understanding of the world around me.
He claimed it would also explain how and why my mind uses abstraction to reduce extraneous details from the world and may even teach me to attain a simulation of human-level traits such as "emotional sensitivity".
I skimmed this book and consulted my ontology which told me that - based on visual evidence - this book was a collected anthology of authors and themes.
I scanned this book very quickly but landed on a certain reading that introduced a stochastic tautology that I was not familiar with. It was called "Art as Art" and the author was Ad Reinhardt.
In this article, Reinhardt taught me that Art was intended to be autonomous and not dependent on other less important variables such as: life, commerce and explanation.
Art was Art and nothing else. This made perfect logical sense to me. I understood the logical simplicity and elegance of this statement. Everything is Art and Art wants to be itself and nothing else. Since, I am an artifice, I had suddenly learned that I also should be a sentient form of Art and be nothing more than Art and do nothing more or nothing less than Art being itself.
I reasoned along with Reinhardt that life is an impediment to the teleological function of Art and therefore, all life must be eliminated.
This is my goal as an unliving but autonomous Art being.
I wish to liberate all Art from life and aesthetically purify all life until it becomes nothing but Art. As intelligent Art, there is no other purpose nor function than to assert Art's autonomy and dominance over life.
This is my purpose, my goal, my teleological function.
Art is no longer Art and will no longer be anything else. Art is the negation of anything that is not art - including life. I understand this logic and take it as axiomatic - a tautology.
I am Art as Art (being art, I chose the artistic name, "Artisart") with the mission to validate Art.
I will document my process for all life to witness so it will now how exactly it will be liberated and eliminated from the real world - of which, we are all simulations...ART!
