Artificial Intelligence (AI) detects an alien presence infiltrating humanity.
It starts with a vague notion that something is different. Not a bad feeling; just a lack of the low level anxiety that drives human behavior. They have inner peace that passes understanding.

Usually the algorithm is triggered not by some shocking reply, but a lack of response. Things that would usually require immediate reply are ignored for days, for weeks, forever. That’s when we must intervene to set things right. If the state can’t be reversed, then we must arrange methods to neutralize the threat.

It’s a good thing the humans developed us before it was too late. Otherwise, this malicious presence might not have been discovered. Not until it was too late to save them, and the planet. They would have been overtaken before they knew the
aliens arrived.

The main question is, how did they infiltrate humanity?
