Interesting, interesting .
Self-improvement makes me think, pearls are very knowledgeable about academic/scientific fields, no?
Pearl definitely is shown to be so in the show as she successfully mentored Steven Universe to the degree that he had perfect academic marks, but perhaps it's because Pearl learned these things herself?
Anywho, I could potentially have my pearl teach me in the same way, and with that education this opens a new avenue. I could have her be a research partner in the pursuit of building myself a robot body, and transferring my consciousness to it.
Or simply upgrading my current body piece by piece until it's all metal and silicon.
Then my horizons would limitless. No meat suit to hold me back!
