It was implied in-game that Ma3a is a cross of Virtual Ghost and Brain Uploading, her programming based primarily on the deceased Dr. Baines-Bradley. Was that accidental, or did Alan do that deliberately?
And if he did it deliberately, why? Was it just the irrational act of a bereft man? A quasi-twisted way to avoid letting her go?
The Ghost in the Machine comics crank the squick up to eleven, too. Granted, it's probably Clarence's attempt to mind-frell Jet, but the comic is trippy enough to bot make sense anyway.
It's an entire universe in there, one we created, but it's beyond us now. Really. It's outgrown us. You know, every time you shut off your computer...do you know what you're doing? Have you ever reformatted a hard drive? Deleted old software? Destroyed an entire universe?"
