As They Like It?
Uploaded post-humans may live within a computer matrix, but they’re imbued with magic. Digital, democratic magic: everyone has a bit of it.
Not that many know this… so they can, if they’re not careful, donate it to someone else. Someone like me.
Many people like me. And they Like me.
Now I’m all powerful. This has, inevitably, corrupted me.
Hence my (private) motto: The love of many is the root of all evil.
