I'm surprised I never fixed this. "take trash out to enhance certainty of
'Boss's memories preserved'"
Reading through some of these, it's also notable that I was forgetting the
story some as I was writing, and some characters got reused in other roles
and stuff. I noticed there were three janitors, meant to have only one
janitor. Janitor is a down-to-earth guy who can solve everything when
nobody else can because he doesn't think like a billionaire or even
prioritise profit. He represents the rebel workers who influence the
businesses, who do so differently from the rebel researchers, vivisectees,
and outmoded investors.
And of course this stuff is mostly just a way for me to handle dissociated
experiences by analogy and all. Seems like it's going to try to be a story
somehow though. We certainly have the technology to make it happen.
