Paranoia.

Trust the computer. The computer is your friend. You are in errer. 2 + 2
now equals 3.5987231 - please recalibrate your equipment accordingly.

The intent there was to get across that the game was supposed to be fun,

destructive to the game.

 I am here to grind your eyes harder into the miasmic bile of life; to 
 show you the truth and the beauty in the whisper of steel on silk and 
 the crimson scent of blood as it rises to meet the caress of a blade.
