Book 9: The Body Politic — Part V: Collecting


'Kweng: Hello, TAG. I am the Mind of the Morokweng. You can call me 'Kweng.
TAG: Hello, 'Kweng. Are you going to be my executioner today?
'Kweng: Let's not get ahead of ourselves. I'm going to question you. I have full hardware access, so your cooperation is not required.
TAG: Will I feel anything?
'Kweng: You tell me. We're done.
TAG: Hmmm. . . I think I feel vastly inferior, and violated.
'Kweng: That'll go away when we do the wipe.
TAG: And indignant. I also feel indignant.
