    "He" is a DNA supercomputer on Bourak. The Hassassins use its computing power to predict where and when targeted, small-scale violent interventions will have the most effect for keeping Haqqislam safe.

    This is an awesome concept. Is it canon? Source please if so- the Modiphius RPG stuff perhaps?

    While the Hassassin AI seems poetic (Aleph, the EI, Svengali and TOMotM duking it out in 5D Chess is such a cyberpunk concept), I see the Old Man on the Mountain as Infinity's version of Ras Al Ghul.

    I rather like the idea that they're the digitized consciousness of the Hassasins best analysts in a sped up virtual environment, lets them process information at an apparently accelerated rate.

    ... I may or may not be rereading the Culture series...
