|The Fru'wu can trace their genetic origins back to Earth.|
According to Gohrlay, it was Hilde who got the idea to provide Fru'wu artificial intelligence technology to the people of Earth. I suppose the reasons for doing this are not really important, but I forced that story out of Gohrlay.
Space Energy Missions
|Hilde, Luri, Betty, Ivory|
The plan was for Hilde and the Space Energy Missions team to build a "hierion collector" on Earth. The Buld would help Luri construct a solar energy collector on Mercury and beam the solar energy to Earth in the form of hierions.
In order to finance construction of the hierion receiving antenna on Earth and infrastructure for world-wide distribution of the energy that would be beamed to Earth from Mercury, Hilde hit upon the idea of selling access to advanced Fru'wu artificial intelligence.

The Fru'wu artificial intelligence technology remained on Mercury. Rich customers such as Apple and Intel were allowed to buy access to the Fru'wu artificial intelligence technology by subscription only. With their access to Fru'wu AI, Intel quickly became the world leader in nanotechnology. Conventional computing power became cheap and universally available on Earth, so companies like Intel and Apple had to find new markets. Apple became the leader in developing artificial intelligence systems that were modeled after the Fru'wu AI technology.
In the end, despite some favorable features of the Ekcolir Reality, R. Gohrlay had to agree to "move on" and help bring the Buld Reality into existence.
