That seems unlikely. If it actually scrubbed whatever was causing the anguish then there would be no more anguish. That's the point after all. In that case Chinook wouldn't remember the Toughs, or at least the specific Toughs who died, and would have no reason to go on a rampage.

I'm with Sean. I think the Erasure Daemon is having a hard time pinpointing memory chunks properly since it's dealing with an alien AI build.

Chinook is a vanilla-helix now after all. We have no idea what Ein-Afa/Iafa was/is.

Maybe it deletes everything related to grief? So everything related to anger would be left intact. So she forgets the things that made her sad but remembers everything that made her mad.

That sounds suspiciously exactly like how Chinook has been behaving.

Question is, what happens whenever she feels guilty about her actions and thoughts, such as starting a galactic war?

The subsystem purges her memory of guilt, leaving only the anger and creating a reinforcing cycle.

More likely, she forgets *everything* except a war happened. Until the alarm dings and reminds her of her role and why it happened. Then she gets angry and starts another one.

We may have found the reason for the cycle of galactic civilization's fall.

Clearly not Iafa, of course, she's MUCH too young, and the timer clearly ten million years.

....perhaps a Hyper-AI who comes back around every ten million years....and speaks to The Archive, who tells it what happened....And since the only way to NOT be accessed by the theoretical hyper-AI (or other intelligence) is to destroy it, and the timing is coming ever closer to its arrival.....
