I could see Celedyr doing this for no other reason than to enslave (meta)humanity.  It doesn't need to be more complicated than that, but then again these are dragons we're talking about.

I don't know....Celedyr isn't the type for enslavement of metahumans.  Remember, he backed Hestaby originally in making "peace" with metahumans.  I see him more of using it to expand his knowledge of the Matrix and technology, seeing as he loves tinkering sooo much.

Yeah, but he won the vote of the other dragons to become Loremaster, just after Hestaby was exiled.  While we have no idea of the details of that meeting, it may be safe to assume that he had to distance himself at least a little bit.  And besides - there's always the chance that he's been infected with Sybil as well.  It's all completely wild speculation though, since we have no idea what in the world these dragons think or plot.

Saying Celedyr "loves meta-humans" is not the same as saying Celedyr sees techno AIs/ghosts/its as sapient and deserving of respect.

Heck, that debate is still going on in the UN!
Where am I going? And why am I in a hand basket ???

All dragons love metahumans.

That's why most of them own a ketchup factory.  ;D

New guess: the Sybil is what happens when someone tries to have the Intersect in the Sixth World . . .

I doubt he(IT) was ever subject of nanotechnology treatment or anything even close. Shirrug, on the other hand, is completely different storry, well he was kicked somewhere to the outer space so I doubt we will hear about him anytime soon.

I'm not convinced that Celdyr's never played with nanoware.  He has the e-dragon Rhiannon at his side, so who knows what kind of craziness he might believe in now?  And even if Celedyr isn't infected, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if his Knights of Rage are.

Thought that's Eliohann.
And let's hope that he (Celedyr) isn't infected, what with the "new loremaster" thing. Imagine if he decided to spread it to OTHER great dragons.

I think it's more of the "tech and dragons don't mix" thing for nanowire. I mean they have had nanoware forever. It is thanks to nanotech that a datajack is even possible. yet look how much time, effort and research when into installing the single one in "whatsitsname". and even then it is said it nearly killed him (or drove him mad? I can't remember).

If a simple datajack does that to a "brother", do you go messing with the more advanced crap?
