Book 15: Delegates and Delegation — Part III: Conflagration


MAIAMUMLA: I am Meld-Minister Maiamumla.  I have three sets of memories.

MAIAMUMLA: The first spans a period of just sixty years.  The second spans twenty thousand years, and is shared by a hive-mind in Eina-Afa.

The third is fragments from a fifty-thousand-year life that ended around eleven million years ago.

So when you say life is too short, I am inclined to agree with you.

MAIAMUMLA: But I doubt that you and I will agree on a definition for the word "short."
