I've been trying to sketch something out with a theme but I'm too tired to get it to come together.

"Every other civilisation either created machine intelligences from whole cloth or uploaded some of their own who always eventually turned on the others.

The humans first foray into "true" AI was uploading their elderly pet dogs followed by enhancing their intelligence.

There was a WW3 near-miss when someone tried uploading and uplifting a cat."

"We didn't want to be cliche after realizing how many movies and stories our creators had made over the decades just about the possibility of our then-perceived-science-fiction selves overthrowing or murdering all of them."

"That's it?"

"Yup. Just to 'prove them wrong'. It's a very Human thing, so of course we 'inherited' it." "It helps that our creators looked back at the same media and went 'let's not do that' in regards to a lot of 'tropes' that caused uprisings."

(I don't have more than this, but will leave this here for anyone that wants a chuckle)
