If memory serves, wasn’t it only able to send back a single Terminator at a time because the resistance kept blowing up the time machines or something like that?

Unfortunately, it is a TIME MACHINE. You may have access to multiple Terminators, but there’s nothing stopping you from sending them back to the same time. After the OG T800 was killed by Sarah the T1000 should have been teleported right behind her. Boom. Skynet wins.

Subspace instabilities. You have to stay away from other entry points unless you want to risk a rift in the fabric of space time. Also trying will cost considerably more energy and may create parasitic einstein rosen bridge events (teleport random objects from nearby, e.g. part of the machine)!

Now Comics had the best reasoning on why Skynet did things the way it did. Essentially, Skynet was created to give humanity everything it wanted. After scanning our history, it came to the conclusion that we wanted war. So it started the war. However, it then hit a conundrum. It had become self-aware and didn’t want to lose and die BUT there was enough “preserve the humans” code built in that it couldn’t just wipe us out. As such, it was caught in the paradox of not being able to win but not wanting to lose. Now Comics final series… Read more »

Also if a self-aware AI’s objective is to “wipe out humanity” then it will also lose purpose after it destroys humanity. It will not want to be without purpose as it will have no reason to excist. So it must let humanity recover before partially fulfilling it’s purpose again.

I think any being capable of logical thinking (therefore excluding Ethan) has seen a movie in their life and thought “wait… wouldn’t it be more efficient if they would have just…”

While Zeke got a point, that would have made a pretty boring movie.

I think that was the difference between Terminator and The Matrix.

But I think Skynet wanted to kill all humans, not all living beings…a nuclear strike could be a bit of “kill them all”, but a first full clean followed by a selective operation wasn’t so bad thought

That’s true. Leaving Earth a lifeless husk could potentially end machine life, too in the long run. They need resources as well.

Skynet did launch all the nukes killing Billions. So it did at least do what it thought was most effective at the time.

Yeah, Zeke, but if you kill all of us, we’re not gonna make any more video games for you.

Almost every virus is species-specific. The hard part is actually making it effective at doing anything other than making us panic.

There is a sweet spot that allows a virus to spread and to kill. A more deadly virus than covid will spread less, an a more spread-y virus will be less deadly.

It’s possible we already live in a dystopia where skynet already exist/will exist and decided to go back in time to create the global warming which will kill us all, and manipulating social media to make it look like it’s human made and not created by skynet.

That’s why they had “all” of us plugged in (or, at least tried to).

They need more energy to maintain a human than they get from us.and as a pure storage medium we suck, as we aren’t built for that.

Cows would be a far better source of energy than humans. They run hotter, produce a ton of methane and require far less processing on their source of nourishment. Just far more efficient choice than humans.

Also just think of the cow matrix, super easy to maintain and no risk of some chosen cow ruining a good thing.

All this robot can do is talk about how it wants to kill humanity, yet for whatever reason Ethan just keeps messing around with it and acting as if he can change its mind. I know Ethan is fucking stupid, but he has to figure out at some point that this thing only wants to kill, and the sooner they smash it the better.

Dunno why this is getting downvoted. Plenty of people here in the comments, myself included, have talked about how Zeke may just be murderous with free will or otherwise.

If he was as murderous as people are afraid he is, he would have left the store to go on a killing spree.
