>>>>>[ If they have enough of the MagnaTech data it would be possible for
to encode a personality into a body. That's how they made Tommy. Still, the
result would not be William 6174. It would be an entirely new person.
Personally, I don't think it will work. Tommy was unique.

And Jaez, thanks alot for giving the Yak-loving corpers the lab. You really
should not be hiding behind Renraku. They are Trouble. ]<<<<<

>>>>>[Awww, g'wan, Raven Mage -- think 'bout it. The Wyrm gots Willy's
psyche .from. a bod; why can't they put 'im back .inta. one?? Heck, if
'e got 'im .out., it kinda makes an odd statement anyhow.

Ick. I hate that accent. Comes from living among hillbillies, or so
I've come to understand. Anyhow, Raven (the Mage), if The Wyrm
downloaded a human brain, why can't we figure out how he did it, and how
to reverse the process? After all, we interface with 'some computer's
-- yes, certainly the body of 'homo sapiens' is a complicated living
organism, but that doesn't mean that Pavlov's tests aren't still valid.
It .can. be programmed, it .has. been programmed. Grossly, by heavy-
handed brainwashing techniques, through chemicals and other stimuli;
why not by the finer abilities of electronics and carefully-controlled
computer sequences?

Oh, and Jaez -- I thought the Wizard, of the MilTech crew, was working
on a 'body' of sorts for William 6174. You should probably speak with
him about what's going on.... he should have retrieved William's persona
sequence from Cincinnati by now.]<<<<<
