Everyone was very nervous.
There was no way to find him. The commissioner approached us and asked if we could create a program to find him.

To begin with, we set out to create a space in which to gather the data. We had to manage to divide between good and evil. We made that first division by simulating the law, but that separation generated a lot of doubts in the team. There were other ways of understanding good and evil.

We added another function simulating religion. It was very similar to the law, but not the same. We crossed them with each other and the first indeterminate spaces appeared. These spaces contained both good and evil.

With small variations we managed to simulate other law systems and other religions. The indeterminate spaces began to multiply. The area of evil became smaller and smaller, but the data was still not enough. We needed to gain much more space for evil.

Therefore, we programmed a new function simulating the morale of each individual. The individual function. It turned out to be totally independent of the functions of laws and religions. It was able to cut through them all.

And we went down that road. We got each individual to have his own individual function, in and out of all other laws, religions and moral convictions.

For the first time, we had the feeling that we could interpret behaviors similar to need or ambition and that encouraged us a lot. The zone in which someone like that could move started to get smaller.

Some of those values were more extreme. They gave unpredictable results.

The program generated an enormous amount of values, immense. It was very difficult to read and represent, but in the end, we began to see the limits of everything.

And so we discovered those places, empty as black holes. Areas where that man moved, beyond the lines of evil that no one should ever cross.

Thank you for coming.
