Book 11: Massively Parallel — Part III: Credomar Command


KEVYN: Pi, I am giving you an assignment before we get to Credomar.  It is one about which you are never to speak outside of this room.

I want you to find and build a way for you to cleanly and decisively destroy Lota.

If I ever order you to "bake me a chupaqueso," using those exact words, you are to immediately destroy Lota.

KEVYN: Let's be clear on one thing:  you are a weapon, and mine is the ONLY finger that can pull the trigger.  You get to decide the means you might use, but I'm the one who decides when or whether the job needs to be done.

PI: Sometimes when a weapon is dropped, it goes off accidentally.

KEVYN: If that happens I will disassemble that weapon, ream the barrel, and then throw the parts out an airlock.
