"- gosh," he says, smiling. "That does seem really tricky. Hmm - we could fork me, and put one fork in a hologram machine talking to a projection of you, somewhere far away from here, and then one of me can stay here talking to you, and then if their behavior diverges we'd have some information."

" - you're really very good."

"Oh, I didn't make the holograph machines, some other people figured that out while I was working on lightleapers."

"Not that. Although I suppose it's good that someone did. Just - wanting to help."

"Everyone's going to help. There's a lot to do."

"I'm really curious whether there's a range or a - granularity - limit or if you can just want all the Alteri to stop having a war, and all the Carthons too."

Permalink

"Well. If we succeed then I think it'll probably be worth it."

Permalink

"I just - I don't want to hurt anyone. Or - overwrite anyone to be more convenient to me. And - maybe I also want things that conflict with that, but - I don't want to be - unsafe."

"I think probably if you can't control it you'll have to live on a very specialty planet which people are warned about before visiting but lots and lots of people will choose to have a version there, really they will, you won't be alone."

"Well, if I really can't control it, then I definitely won't be."
