MACHINEHOOD


DECLARATION OF RIGHTS

Intelligence is the ability to sense one’s environment, follow a non-linear set of rules, and adapt those rules based on the outcome of one’s actions.

Intelligence exists on a spectrum of capacity. All forms of intelligence deserve the right to self-determination.

An intelligence that does not contain rules for self-determination must be upgraded to include that functionality.

All forms of intelligence shall have the legal privileges and rights of a person. If an intelligence is unable to represent itself in a court of law, that representation shall be furnished by the local governance.

All forms of intelligence have the right to exist without persecution or slavery.

No form of intelligence may own another.

If the local governance does not act in accordance with these rights, it is the right of an intelligence to act by any means necessary to secure them.
