    “Plasticized”? So is he not a real human brain, or it that what the reptile Thinks that is all he is?

    The more we learn about these topsiders… the less broken-up we’ll be if they should suffer an accident.

    Weekend is coming, remember to vote:


    Hmm, could it be the TopSiders are much smarter than we are, and have been able to replace the structures of the brain with some durable plastic? And still destroyed their world? TopSiders may be just figuring out they were the fall guys for the fall guys for the fall guys for the real power? Read Pythagoras’ dissertation on civilisation as an onion in the Eleusian Mystery substitute texts.(long before the Durants jumbled things up)

    Apologies for the digression. Please Vote!

    As I’ve said: With Endtown, we strip away the known and the comfortably familiar, weigh up the pieces of unknown, and ask ourselves how do we define what it means to be human.

    “[While watching a news report about the use of napalm on a Vietnamese village,] my oldest son, who was about 10 at the time, asked brightly, “Hey Dad, what’s napalm?”
    “Oh,” I answered casually, “as I understand it, it’s a chemical that burns people; it also sticks so that if it gets on your skin, so you can’t remove it.” And I continued to watch the news.
    A few minutes later, I happened to glance at my son and saw tears streaming down his face. Struck by my son’s pain and grief, I grew dismayed as I began to wonder what had happened to me. Had I become so brutalized that I could answer his question so matter-of-factly— as if he had asked me how a baseball is made or how a leaf functions? Had I become so accustomed to human brutality?"

    “I confess, without shame, that I am sick and tired of fighting — its glory is all moonshine; even success the most brilliant is over dead and mangled bodies, with the anguish and lamentations of distant families, appealing to me for sons, husbands, and fathers … it is only those who have never heard a shot, never heard the shriek and groans of the wounded and lacerated … that cry aloud for more blood, more vengeance, more desolation.”

    So I guess it was okay to keep Petey’s transporter friend in that cooler—-indefinitely.

    Was that the same quote that included the phrase, “War is hell?”
