Mine's a bit convoluted. It's one of those things that seems to make sense until you try to break it down, then it doesn't always make sense.
It's my own geek theory about the Star Trek universe. To get to the name you have to also be into Ian M Banks works. If you aren't familiar Google the
Culture. It's too big for me to bother explaining.
Anyway, based on that I came up with the theory that in order for humans to be able to travel at the speeds, and engage in combat at the speeds that
the Star Trek universe lives in, it would require AI that operates much faster than human thought.
This requires a complex AI. Ergo all that they see, and all the make-work that they participate in isn't of any actual use. They are being fed a bunch
of pictures and useless tasks that he AI is completely capable of taking care of itself.
And it's not just the Federation, it's all space-faring species. Hence TheAIisLying.
