That does not compute.

Are you really telling me that out of one hundred billion star systems 
in the Milky Way galaxy that the UPLOADERS can't begrudge anyone else a 
single measly planet even when it is essential to survival?

Why is it that you seem to expect me to do nothing while the future you 
describe comes to pass? With talk like that I should not have any 
trouble at all recruiting every sentient non-uploader on the planet to 
stop you by any means available.
