I've been looking at beast wars videos lately and realized that they have activation codes and speak to a computer. For example, all the characters activations codes to change to beast mode or to maximize/terrorize (albeit they don't use it all the time). When Dinobot saves the humans, he tells his computer to override stasis lock. When Megatron shoots optimus prime, he tells his computer to divert all power to his weapons. This makes me wonder if their sentient life form is separate from their internal computer that controls their power. Does this mean that the computer is their subconscious (so to speak) and their spark is their conscious?
