Well, no, with the warp being a thing, and the (very, very large) entirety of the adeptus mechanicus and a large large number of space marines believing machine spirits to be a thing because they don't actually understand how technology works, just how to put it together, machine spirits became real.

A pretty awesome example of machine spirits are the crazed elder-god level entities that reside in titans.

>> No.18017397

They didn't "make" anything sentient. Making a machine sentient is one of the things that got the Imperium into the colossal clusterfuck they face right now.

I think the more powerful or complex a machine is the more powerful its spirit is supposed to be. So something like a toaster isn't really something to be concerned with much, but a Titan has something that actually approaches consciousness.

>> No.18017400


It's not the guns, it's most complicated machinery. It's also not fully sentient but the partial intelligence of anything ranging from an animal to a human which aids in things such as the auto-targeting of enemy targets in the middle of a fight to avoid hitting allies or more.

it's also still a bit of a vague area in 40k lore which happens to be one of my favorites, but that's the gist of it

Bolters have an predatory animal 'spirit' in them. They're linked to the wielder by neural connections. That lasersight thing on the bolter? It's a third eye, that lets the marine see through it.

Mostly because you have to have at least some vital functions to be sustained by a dreadnought. The Emperor is just *too dead* to be maintained by a Dreadnought Sarcophagus.

Also, the Emperor's psychic powers are the only things capable of holding closed the damaged warp gate that the Throne is connected to. Another psyker did it for a while during the Heresy, but it destroyed him. Even if somebody found a way to restore the Emperor to a level of health that could survive in a dreadnought they would still need to find another alpha-plus psyker to sit on the Golden Throne.

Things can get iffy as soon as you try to do any kind of innovation without consent of higherups.
You will not get grilled for the toaster, but for using prohibited tech or some new method that is not approved.
What exactly counts as techheresy is not really sure and depends on what source you consult. >>18018202 represents the zero-tolerance approach, which is suggested by the earlier tabletop books.
Most books that delve deeper into the universe, nowadays imply cases of new developements and modifications. Even outright progress by private companies.

>toasters were developed by early techpriests

But wouldn't a present time (our era) engineer or inventor be comparable to a tech priest? I mean, of course two very important aspects are missing: The mechanical prosthetic limb with practical purposes (drilling, torching or shooting) and the religious aspect, but wait a couple hundred or thousand years - our time - and I'm sure you have some cult of engineers with mechanical body parts.

Which might make them ancient techpriests if the Warhammer 40k timeline is supposed to be an offshoot of our own, or am I wrong?

Sorry if I'm very mistaken, I just can't face toast being heresy in the future, like the fa/tg/uy who denounced the Emperor when he learned that in the grim future of Warhammer 40k there was no IHOP.

People can make stuff in the future of 40k, but nobody really does. There's very little reason to with STCs around.

>There's very little reason to with STCs around.
bit of a falsity there; while STC's are absolutely priceless relics that (usually) contain a treasure of technical information, largely they are fragmented or incomplete

Tech-Priests regularly need to rebuild the information from the ground up. And not all technical discoveries are STC-based. Although your average member of the machine cult can't really do much on their own, the higher echelons frequently theorize and work with new discoveries and create new technology

The C'Tan phase blade and things like Hellfire rounds are a good example of that, but there are more in the fluff (a good example would be Arkhan Land's Grav-Technology, which he based on non STC information).

Loads of knowledge IS lost, though. It just depends on how super-SCIENCE (or blatantly ignorant) the particular author wants the Mechanicus to be at the time

godamn inconsistent canon!

does this mean that, potentially, some salamanders recruits are white? Also the change wouldn't be immediate so some younger salamanders would also be white, while older salamanders are the darkest with the chapter masters and veterans being almost literal black while the regular companies are brown in skin colour and the scouts lighter/middle eastern in colour.
