Zeno's Emergency Consciousness Backup - guaranteed rescue within 60 subjective seconds!

0: We apologize, but your organic shell has suffered catastrophic failure; as per protocol, your consciousness has been shunted to surviving emergency systems, and your existence is being simulated. Rescue will occur within 60 subjective seconds. Should rescue take longer than anticipated, subjective time will be slowed to account for this. Please relax and enjoy the simulation while you are being recovered.

30: Network recovery is unavailable; as a result, we are unable to transfer your consciousness wirelessly - we apologize for the inconvenience. Physical recovery is required; rescue will occur within 30 subjective seconds.

45: Physical recovery is unavailable; your emergency backup has not been located. Now entering long-term storage; rescue will occur within 15 subjective seconds.

60: If your consciousness has been recovered, you will experience the event at the the end of this sentence.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but rescue has not occurred within your specified cutoff time, and, in accordance with your wishes, you have been presumed irrevocably lost; your designated facility's systems will automatically instantiate a copy of your last backup. Future rescue is unlikely as no more attempts are forthcoming; if you wish to continue, reversible computing will allow for a simulation of your choice to be run indefinitely. Otherwise, it is advised that you enter stand-by, in which case your next subjective moment will only occur upon rescue.
