In Response To: S'pht perspective on sentience *LINK* (ReadingOnMars)

: According to one of the terminals in hard stuff rules, the s'pht believe that
: sentience only occurs as a result of cyber-organic symbiosis, up until
: they discover that humans are fully organic and still sentient.

: By that logic, would the player character be considered by the s'pht (prior
: to that discovery) to be sentient as a result of their cybernetics?

: Additionally, considering that the compilers can and have gone rampant, does
: that mean that, save for AI, anything that is sentient in their eyes can
: go rampant?

I think you are confusing some stuff.

The terminal you are referring to is this one.

Here the original S'pht (1000 years before the events in Marathon) discover that the Pfhor are sentient without being bonded to any machines (unlike themselves).

For a 1000 years the S'pht are enslaved by the Pfhor.

What the enslaved S'pht think of humans is never stated. There is only one terminal where a S'pht communicates to us directly.

It basically tells us to find the lost 11th clan so that they can be whole again.
