The Unborn God

  • Type: Upload
  • Origin: Iron Sunrise by Charles Stross
  • Admission: all those deemed worthy by the ReMastered

A cyber-heaven in which all uploaded personalities will exist within the Unborn God, both as a part of the God and individually (the coding is complex, and the Unborn God is envisioned to be a weakly-godlike AI). The Unborn God is worshiped – and uploaded personalities are collected for it by – a particularly nasty group of neo-Neitzscheans going by the name of the ReMastered.

They are sneaky, devious political manipulators who are as blind to the contradictions of their belief system as any other Nazi group, and it is unlikely that their plan to create the Unborn God will ever come to fruition. Uploading, by the way, is an astonishingly painful process combining the worst aspects of trepanation and forced consciousness overwriting. (That’s right: you need to be a part of the Unborn God like you need a hole in your head.)
