This is Terry Carens' brain. See these dark areas- how they extend all the way out to here- you know why that looks like that? That's because Terry Carens doesn't use that part of his brain. And that'd be where you find stored such things as empathy, compassion, an aversion to disembowling puppies.Topher
Ok, so I probably never should have taken this course to begin with, but I figured it was medieval lit, not advanced evil, how hard could it be? So I skipped intro to evil or whatever, but how is it that I get an F, when this guy that we're reading, Chauncey, can't even spell?Echo
Victor's loose, doesn't have GPS and apparently he's a serial killer.Topher
Topher: So what I'm going to attempt to do is go into his biolink feed, which doesn't tell me where he is, but it does give me a way into his head... Uh, I'm going to reverse the signals, send a purgation tone, and load his mind, literally.
Boyd: And what, leave him out there in his doll state, totally wiped?
Topher: He'll be an empty-headed robot wondering around Hollywood - he'll be fine!
Adelle: Hello Mr. Langton, how is your evening out?
Boyd: A lot like my evenings in.
I don't want to use the word genius, but I'd be ok if you wanted to.Topher
The human mind is like Van Halen. If you just pull out one piece and keep replacing it, it just degenerates.Topher
I was wiping her and then my face exploded!Topher
The maternal instinct is the purest - it's too strong for a normal wipe. I outplayed myself. It's like online chess!Topher
Echo: All of these things that happen to me, I feel them.
Ballard: I know, Echo. I know you remember everything.
Echo: Not remember - feel. I was married. I felt love, and pain, fear. It's not pretend for me. They made me love my little boy and then they took him away. They make it so real. Every time, they make it so real. Why do they do that?
Ballard: If you want, I'll tell Topher what's going on with you and he can fix it. He'll come up with a way to wipe you and you won't remember a thing. You won't have to feel sad anymore.
Echo: Feeling nothing would be worse. It would be like before - asleep. I'm awake now. I don't want to go back to sleep.
Echo: I remember everything. Sometimes I'm someone else and then I come back, but I still feel them. All of them. I've been many people. I can hear them, sometimes suddenly. I'm all of them, but none of them is me. Do you know who's real?
Echo: I want to find her. I want to find all of them. Real them. They can be found. We are lost, but we are not gone.
