The Metamorphosis of Prime Intellect

A Novel by Roger Williams

In the best possible future, there will be
no war, no famine, no crime,
no sickness, no oppression,
no fear, no limits, no shame…
…and nothing to do.

This online novel contains strong language and extreme depictions of acts of sex and violence. Readers who are sensitive to such things should exercise discretion.

Notes from Xah Lee

The Metamorphosis of Prime Intellect is a short science fiction, written by Roger Williams, published in 2002. (5.8 k words)

Foremost, it is a torture porn fantasy. You'll read, in graphic detail, how a girl is being maimed, flayed, alive and with orgasm. Secondarily, it is a scenario of a omnipotent machine; a philosophical characterization of human animals as pursuit process.
