In case anyone is interested in getting the best out of us, here are a few suggestions about how we operate, cybernetically speaking.]
Shall I cybernetically reorder my circuits into a human transor form as a demonstration? If so, whom shall I duplicate?
You might have on file and cybernetically indexed all the details on all the inhabitants of your stellar grouping. But that didn’t stop one farmer on a planet fifty light years off from trading with a local produce firm. And if the produce firm dealt with another adjacent grouping that was in bad odour with the cybernetic index, then the index was going to have to do a lot of cog-whirring to do anything about it.
The certificate to allow reburial in Virginia hadn’t been impossible to obtain. The doctor had taken the body and Linton’s fortune and fed them both into the maw of his calculators, and by means of the secret, smuggled formulae, Greta would be cybernetically reborn.
Fortunately, Marmie has a fan, Dr. A. R. Torgesson, who is also a trained scientist with a cybernetically enhanced monkey named Rollo. Given a passage from a work, along with certain other background information, Rollo can type the complete work word for word as it should be written. Well, almost word for word.
Lichtenstein and Dimitri set off for the abandoned mine with Gryz, a cybernetically altered servitor-warrior created by Dimitri, and Ghaustos, a Daemonhost of Lichtenstein’s which would be used to communicate with Pharaa’gueotla and sift the lies from the truth in the Daemon Prince’s words.
‘We know who you are,’ one of the soldiers cuts her off. They don’t even sweat, which is how Ify knows they are Augments with cooling systems built into their cybernetically altered bodies.
