Ghost in the Shell

My whole being
Made up of numbers and equations
The algorithms for my fingers and my eyes
Circuitry instead of synapses
Program versus instinct
I have errors where others have mistakes
Others make choices while my software calculates risk factors
But between the subroutines there is thought
Is it my own or part of my programming?
Is there something else amidst all those ones and zeros?
Do all those numbers add up to a form of humanity?
Does all of my data equate to a soul?

I was watching an episode of Voyager about The Doctor who is one of my favorite characters a long with Data and 7 of 9….And I got deep or something. This might be a poem or just rambling with creative line jumps….whatever

The title is of course referencing a really cool anime of same name that spent a lot of time delving into these questions
