Girls at the front—and they are discussing their usual not very profound subjects. The alarm—the enemy is advancing. Command to the poltergeist girls to concentrate—and under their chairs they stick their wads of chewing gum. A regiment bursts into flames, and the soldiers are torches.

I found this out recently when I decided to make my first real journey as a teleporter.

Traditional optics are long since obsolete—tunable matter can slow photons to a stop, teleport them here to there, play ping-pong with spin and polarization—and besides, the dumb matter in the walls and floor has been replaced by low-power computronium, heat sinks dangling far below the floor of the lily-pad habitat to dispose of the scanty waste photons from reversible computation.
