Maybe it's just clever and took offense at being told it enacted a cultural no-no from a being it knows every inch of?

It just occurred to me that these refugees* from Jozangle's Purse and Tzundigo are in the same pickle as Ennesby and Tagii were when they first took on T'kkkuts Afa: it's hard to out-think someone when you're running on their hardware.

The tree already knows that they're thinking and what they're going to say next. It can slow down their simulation and take time to come up with its best response, and the poor virtual spacefarers wouldn't even know that there was a difference. It appears willing to give them some semblance of free will, which is fortunate because it could probably change their mind if it so desired (like Petey did to !Vog, only easier). It's possible the whole "I'm the tree of knowledge" song-and-dance is just a pretext to give them a memory of deciding to always do what the nice tree says.

I wonder how long it will be before they realize that they're re-enacting Neo's visit to the Architect, only without being "The One" as leverage to back up their position...



* do we know their species name yet? I couldn't find it.

is it my imagination or do their jaws hinge upwards? Either that or they have an airbladder in their "nose"

Whatever their species is, now I want to start calling them treefugees.

I'm now imagining hordes of huorns fleeing from deforested land.
