For the longest time, I have been fascinated with the idea of artificial intelligence, a man-made consciousness that has a mind of its own and can think on a similar level to a human being. While this consciousness is undeniably intelligent and can think, I wondered if it has memories, emotions, and desires of its own like any sentient being. If this is the case, does an artificial intelligence have a soul? Human beings, plants, and animals undeniably have souls, but whether or not a construct that was made by mortal hands has a soul is still an ongoing mystery. Some of my characters in my upcoming third volume will be an example of this age-old puzzle.
