It's been said that many of the formations we see in the Andes, like upside down stairways, faux doorways cut into a mountainside as if the igneous rock was butter, sharp inside corners, look like the work of children playing with high tech tools. It's almost what we'd expect a synthetic "Human 1.0" to do fresh off the first generation assembly line. And then "Oops, back to the drawing board" and out pops "Human 2.0" and so on until a self-sustainable model is finally achieved. Then, once the design seems relatively stable, there's only a need to stop back to the lab every few millennia to make sure the concoction of organicware continues to brew according to plan...
