Agents Mulder and Scully investigate the strange death of a computer genius, only to become targets of an unlikely killer capable of the worst kind of torture.
My Rating: 7/10
The dream sequence with the kung-fu fighting Scully is hilarious. Overall, the episode was OK but again, nothing special.

Invisigoth: "He let it loose, so it could evolve in its natural environment: urschleim in silicon."
Scully: " 'Urschleim in silicon'?"
Invisigoth: "The primordial slime, the ooze out of which all life evolved. Except this time it's artificial slime. Artificial life. One man alone achieving the equivalent of Copernicus, Magellan, and Darwin."
Scully: "What was your role in all this? Were you the bass player?"
Scully: "Electrons chasing each other through a circuit? That isn't life, Mulder."
Mulder: "Yeah, but what are we but impulses, electrical and chemical, through a bag of meat and bones? You're the scientist. You tell me."
