"Project AIRTH [FILE-09] - Haltmann's Archives" is a lore video and the ninth "file" in Haltmann's Archives. It documents the many, many SiIvaGunner fan channels that exist on YouTube and explains their existence through the canon.
Summary[edit | edit source]
The video is formatted like all Haltmann's Archives videos starting with "FILE-02". It opens with this message:
After noting the sample extraction noted in FILE-08 was successful, the text explains that the next step is something called Project AIRTH. Before Project AIRTH can be put into action, however, the sample must be tested using "third parties". All of these "subjects" have produced AIRTH Prototypes, various forms of artificial intelligences with their own histories and themes. However, all of the Prototypes present their content as rips, much like SiIvaGunner does. The FILE ends with a note that the Prototypes are well beyond the research team's control, but may yield results that help the team further.
Transcript[edit | edit source]
The sample extraction (see [FILE-08]) was successful, and were [sic] now ready to move onto the next phase of our operation - [Project AIRTH].
However, we could not move forward with the project until further testing had been conducted with the sample - so we authorized it for third party usage. Not without a nominal fee, of course.
The results of this beta test have produced a number of interesting results amongst our third party subjects - copies of an all new ripping apparatus.
We call these [AIRTH Prototypes]: different forms of artificial intelligence, all producing different content, each with its own running theme, its own mythology, and its own set of viral ideas.
Yet, all of them share traits with the sample we have created - presenting what they have made in the form of rips.
The AIRTH Prototypes have evolved considerably, and are far beyond our control now, and we suspect that our code may have been put onto the black market for copying - but we can learn from their results...
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- "Introducing Megan Reed" from Deus Ex: Human Revolution is the background music for this FILE.
- This video was uploaded on the day SiIvaGunner tweeted reassurances that everything was normal on the channel. SiIvaGunner had fixed all the glitching (channel icon, channel art and subreddit banner), which was revealed to be in fact caused by Wood Man. SiIvaGunner also stated that he had installed antivirus software to protect him and his rips from threats like Wood Man himself.
- It is later revealed in "The Life and Times of Wade L.D. - A SiIvaGunner Christmas Comeback Crisis Side Story" that AIRTH stands for Artificially Intelligent Rip Theatricalizers.
