megalomaniac robot parade

largely for archiving but also up for review:

idea for part of a larger story:

corporate workers convinced that the massive cluster super computer they work on is the biggest in the world; the over-computer; the omega...

through a series of whatevers one of the workers departs from the company...wanders...discovers equally powerful computers...

discovers that there is a level of super computer siblings which their computer is a member of; turns out that each sibling is actually a virtual entity comprising one massive computer...

this thus lends itself to (seemingly) infinite and eternal recurrence up to....what? a false history written by a megalomaniac supercomputer with millions of hierarchically organized corporate children, each of which parades itself as Omega to its worker-followers?

every company thinks it's competing with the others; but each one is just representing another sibling in this huge cluster grid.

what implication does this have for the individual living/working in this system? for the eventual (?) 'real' Omega computer?
