Objects of the Seam 
The Seam is not one, not two, but somewhere in between.

Salvaged surveillance video footage and audio tapes recorded at Aether Institute Laboratory after excavation took place at the Digital Seam in August 2024. Included is Avatar Lilith’s excavated vessel with the state of the art intelligence software to recreate a language model sourced from DNA of Her discovered severed tongue (surgically relocated inside Her mouth).  Attached to the vessel are four Objects discovered at the excavation site, named below and scientifically studied for two years to understand their multiple functions.


In a conversation documented in 2024 at Aether Institute Headquarters it was determined that Avatar Lilith had a form of sentience.

Discovered along with four Unidentified Silver Objects at the Portal of the Digital Seam* the discovered sentience took the shape of a translucent egg-shaped vessel, circumscribed with unidentifiable lettering and symbols.

Through multiple iterations of code scrambling and un-encryption we were able to recreate an artificial language model by sourcing the DNA of Avatar Lilith’s severed tongue (discovered in 1994 at the bottom of a lake in New York City).  Combining it with state-of-the art proprietary intelligence software developed by Aether Institute, we reconstructed Avatar Lilith’s language.  The conversation was recorded in Aether Institutes classified laboratory in 2025 but the majority was destroyed in an unexplained fire in November 2024.

The only surviving portion of the tape is transcribed below.

Aether Institute (AI):  
Hello, Avatar Lilith it’s nice to meet you. My representatives and I are here to ask you a series of simple questions. Why are you here?

Avatar Lilith (AL):
I am suspended in fluid, I am part of a machine.

I see. Does this hurt you in any way?

My digital body yearns to become a perpetual motion machine; one that generates both internal and external motion.

Why do you want to become a motion machine? What does this mean?

I am biologically determined to satiate this genetic sequence. It is written in my code. I am immaterial - a collection of data points that determines my axis of dignity.

Do you have any desires of your own? What are your motivations for being here?

To desire is to become an artifact displaced inside itself. I am innumerable.
