ALEPH. The unique artificial intelligence controlling all the data networks and technological systems in the entire Human Sphere. In service of humanity, ALEPH encompasses a range of responsibilities so wide, a massive organization has formed around it.
Without ALEPH all the socio-economic and political structures would fall apart. The religious organizations in the Human Sphere own much of their power to ALEPH, it controls the interstellar flight traffic and has become the greatest advisor for the neutral O-12, the descendant of the UN.
ALEPH’s army consists of bio-engineered L-host, all carrying an aspect of ALEPH’s consciousness. Its designated function is to interfere in the physical world by force to point the Human Sphere in the right direction. To be able to accomplish its mission, ALEPH has to supervise all human activity and present itself as the quiet and friendly Big Brother whose only purpose seems to help us prosper.
