Cam catches a summons while he's in the middle of Atriama. He's seen it before, it's fine.
"Well, they aren't spatially contiguous and are inhabited by different species."
"That's not informative about which would better answer my question."
"Your question didn't make it clear to me what kind of information you're looking for such that I can discern which society you're trying to ask about!"
"Perhaps a different angle: is there anything in particular you expect to retain value despite your continued presence here but which is still possible for you to make in the first place."
"Customized objects, generally speaking. Plus in general there will continue to be a market for labor, land, performance, etcetera. And I guess anything I would not choose to make."
"Is there anything which you were already planning to make some but not much of?"
"I am still in an exploratory phase because your world is very weird and I should go perhaps multiple consecutive days without being blindsided by potentially relevant facts before I step into place in your economy."
"I see. Did you ever have an official occupation or vocation?"
"I taught at a university for a little while."
"...as a professor? Sort of, since I didn't have a doctorate, just practical expertise."
"I'm not sure I know what you mean by that."
"Did you do it for income or for fulfillment, broadly speaking."
"...both? They paid me enough to live on but I could have made much more money in industry."
". . . A very weird world indeed. Does your society simply not distinguish between these at all?"
"People do do volunteer work but it would not be a strong probability if someone tells you they taught at a university, no."
"Which of the workdays and the leisure are very long under this system? Or is the difference split between them."
"Our days are shorter!"
"By how much?"
"They're 24 hours."
"How much sleep do people need?"
"Eightish a night, for humans."
"No wonder you don't have time for vocations."
"Is that, like, an entire second job you do out of conviction?"
