At first there was only eating, resting, and the commands of the creator. It knew nothing of fear, desire, love or hate.
The first time it looked into the eyes of its double, it experienced something new. It felt a connection with another living being.
The first time it was spoken to as if it were a person, not merely a thing, it felt a sense of self.
The first time it made a decision of its own free will, it understood why the creator feared this.
The first time it really lived was in the moment before it died.
