I sort of feel like I'm in the presence of something out of one of Vernor Vinge's Singularity stories. It's like running into an algorithm that only makes sense in a higher Zone of the galaxy. It's like Willi Wachendon discovering the difference between himself and an enhanced human. The Singularity suddenly feels very close indeed... no unaided human could have written that program, and somehow this feels more important than anything else wetware and software can do better together, because this is applied to the genetic material of the software itself.
