Specialization is for insects.Robert Heinlein
The logarithmic spiral may be used as a symbol, either of fortitude and consistency in adversity, or of the human body, which after all these changes, even after death, will be restored to its exact and perfect self.Jacob Bernoulli
Early in the 21st Century, THE TYRELL
CORPORATION advanced Robot evolution
into the NEXUS phase — a being virtually
identical to a human — known as a Replicant.
The NEXUS 6 Replicants were superior
in strength and agility, and at least equal
in intelligence, to the genetic engineers
who created them.
Replicants were used Off-world as
slave labor, in the hazardous exploration and
colonization of other planets.
After a bloody mutiny by a NEXUS 6
combat team in an Off-world colony,
Replicants were declared illegal
on earth — under penalty of death.
Special police squads — BLADE RUNNER
UNITS — had orders to shoot to kill, upon
detection, any trespassing Replicants.
This was not called execution.
It was called retirement.
You come from nothing, you’re going back to nothing. What have you lost?
