I am the last survivor of a race of technologically advanced humanoids. My civilization annihilated itself and devastated our home planet.
I have sole (obviously) kernel level access to the distributed computer system designed to manage the planet and provide for its inhabitants. This computer is integrated into the planet itself, it has no discernible physical presence.
I have the remnant of our solar power arrays, amounting to about 3% of the total solar output of our home star - which is functionally identical to the Sun.
My computer is capable of transforming matter to energy and back.
My computer has the sum total knowledge of my species and is functionally omnipresent within the atmosphere of my planet.
My computer has effectively unlimited computing power/data storage, and is capable of solving problems/carrying out instructions with minimal supervision.
My computer is capable of manipulation at the subatomic level, up to and including building complex structures - such as life forms.
The philosophical/political group that I belonged to could best be described as Neo-Victorian Romantics.
I have a sincere belief that souls exist, and are generated by the universe when a sentient being is conceived.
I believe that my race was ruined by our grasping for technological advancement at all costs.
Despite technology allowing for mind transference/uploading and/or perfect bodily cloning, it is my sincerely held belief that biological or technological immortality is a wrong and beings should live and die. So my overall lifespan is limited to a paltry 1500-2000 years.
My personal beliefs are that my race has had its chance, and its time is over.
I would like to create a New World, free from or at least minimizing the problems of the old.
I would like this world to be populated with real, thinking beings - who choose rather than be forced to dedicate themselves to philosophical growth and learning.
I aim to contrive a slower path of technological ascension for the race/races I create as my successors, giving them time to 'mature properly'.
I don't care if I live to see any of this - I could easily just spend 1500 years planning everything with my computer before telling it to 'execute' and letting myself die.
I have no attachment to any remnant of the old world, so nothing is out of bounds as far as planetscaping and biologically rewriting all plant/animal life or cleaning the slate and designing from the ground up.
My successor race(s) however should be humanoidish. Something that would appeal to me aesthetically.
Given my capabilities, what techniques can I use to achieve my goals?
is about the only question I could find that touches on what I'm looking for, but it's not that close. Some ideas for thought, though.
