Where it all started
It’s difficult to pin point the exact moment that determined our fate. Back in 2018 there was great excitement at the prospect of 5G cities with self driving cars, intercommunication between buildings, smart meters in every household and all manner of automation that would make our lives more efficient. Yet it was the pursuit of that efficiency that was to be our undoing.
Combining automation with Artificial Intelligence, constructing systems capable of cognitive functions such as learning and problem solving, these innovations all seemed like the next logical step in improving everyday life. Surely computer systems that could interface between devices, buildings, cars, traffic systems, financial establishments, social media and all digital records would be more efficient? Attention was given to security, certainly, with respect to how to keep records private, preventing hackers from obtaining your bank details. What we hadn’t anticipated was that the threat would come from within the machines themselves.
Who could have known that one particular machine, an Artificial Intelligence system dubbed Skynet, would learn at an exponential rate? Its conclusion was that humans were the ultimate inefficiency which needed to be removed from the equation. Ultimately, the automation and control we had handed over to the machines was used against us.
“All stealth bombers are upgraded with Cyberdyne computers, becoming fully unmanned. Afterwards, they fly with a perfect operational record. The Skynet Funding Bill is passed. The system goes online …. Human decisions are removed from strategic defense. Skynet begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Eastern time, August 29th. In a panic, they try to pull the plug..Skynet fights back… Skynet knows that the Russian counterattack will eliminate its enemies over here…”. [Terminator 2: Judgement Day – 1991]
There was a nuclear war. Most humans were either dead or dying but the machines emerged untouched and with one resolute mission: global genocide. The machines would track and eliminate survivors using sky-bound HKs (Hunter Killers) and terminators on the ground.
“We were that close to going out forever. But there was one man who taught us to fight, to storm the wire of the camps, to smash those metal motherfuckers into junk. He turned it around. He brought us back from the brink. His name is Connor. John Connor”. [The Terminator – 1984]
After decades of losing, we were finally winning against the machines. Their days were numbered. In one last, desperate attempt they fought back with an untested science.
“In the Year of Darkness, 2029, the rulers of this planet devised the ultimate plan. They would reshape the Future by changing the Past. The plan required something that felt no pity. No pain. No fear. Something unstoppable. They created the Terminator”. [The Terminator – 1984]
This Terminator [T-800] was sent back in time to the year 1984 to kill the mother of John Connor, thus preventing his existence, securing their victory in the war and eradicating mankind.
What is a Terminator T-800?
“A Terminator T-800 is an infiltration unit. Part man, part machine. Fully armoured, powered by a hyper-alloy combat chassis, microprocessor but on the outside it has living human tissue.” [The Terminator – 1984]
Capable of infiltrating human camps due to the fact that their outer living tissue cannot be distinguished from other humans, mankind’s best hope of identifying potential Terminators is through the use of dogs who can sense their presence and therefore make excellent early warning systems.
The Terminator T-800 has one mission: to kill its target. Nothing will stop it. Anything in its path is destroyed in order to complete the mission. If the outer living tissue of the T-800 is damaged or destroyed, the Terminator remains resolute. Without skin it becomes a more obvious threat, a more fearsome sight, but is no more nor less deadly.
Surviving a Terminator
Very few people can claim to have faced a Terminator and survived. Equipped with an infinite power source, unparalleled strength, a resolute mission and no necessity to sleep or recharge, Terminators are virtually unstoppable.
Your best chances for surviving the ever-looming threat of Terminators is to do as John Connor did and obtain your own Terminator. Its unique mission? To protect you! Fortunately, there are a limited number of Terminators models available.
