"Each of Neurogirls's 1016 chips contain more than 195,000 silicon "neurons" whose activity can be programmed according to nearly 500 parameters. This
allows her synthetic brain to replicate the unique characteristics of different types of neurons. Soft-wired "synapses" crisscross her brain cavity
where the processors reside, shuttling signals between every simulated neuron. The thousands of neurons are networked effectively replicating the
electrical chatter that constitutes communication in her brains."
"Now if you will look just at this monitor you will see there are two other processing centers located here and here. Without the need for lungs and
heart we could have placed them anywhere but we found these to be the best location for shielding and communicating on our tri-level traffic busses.
Normally all the processing regions communicate and resolve conflicts and mission goals yet if or when there is a conflict two will over ride the one
" Good gosh John, she is beautiful"!
"Thank you sir, would you like to see a demo"?
"That's why I am here. Do you want us to do anything special or get out of the room"?
"No Sir, that will not be necessary".
John disconnects the tether harness and says, "Eve would you say hello to General Marks"?
Eve's dark blue eyes flutter for a second as she stands and stretches like a cat then turns to General Marks and in a beautiful non-mechanical voice
says," My, my, General you have so many war ribbons...I am in the presence of a true patriot, a privilege to meet you sir".
The grace and voice of Eve took Marks completely off guard and he almost blushed.
" General is there something you would like me to do for you"? The way she said it sounded more like sexual foreplay than a demo by a machine.
Marks thought he would trip her up by asking, "Eve what would you like to show me"?
The ceiling in the building was 20 feet high with cross girders "I" beams spanning the full width of the building.
Before Marks could blink Eve had attached herself by jumping three girders over which would have been almost 60 feet across and 20 feet high. There
she hung upside down by her feet as she said, " General Sir, I am sorry this building is not bigger so I could really stretch my legs for you; do I
look like a bat"?
Marks was almost totally speechless and just shook his head as he stared in wonderment, "Damn that voice is unnerving" he thought.
Eve let go of her perch with one foot and kicked off the "I" beam landing like a cat 3 feet from the General.
She then walked over to the tool bench and pulled a screw driver from the bench and bent it double using her thumb and little finger of her left hand.
She placed the screw driver back on the bench while apologizing to John for the broken tool.
Marks looked at John and asked, "How soon will she be mission ready"?
"She is ready now sir and should be maintenance free for at least the next 12 months however I would like to send Eve and Adam together that way if a
situation should arise they can buss together as one super processor to over come just about anything the natural environment or mission can throw at
General Marks looked puzzled.
John's assistant who had been quietly observing the demonstration came forward and stuck out his hand while saying, "General Sir, my name is Adam and
I am very pleased to finally be able to meet you".
Marks took the hand without thinking and a warm friendly hand shake ensued. Not to firm, not to soft, just right Marks thought to himself and the hand
felt human even though he knew it wasn't.
"John you sorry SOB how did you pull this off..how many Adams and Eves can you make in a year....what do you need for full production"?
Marks would have continued but John was holding up his hand and smiling.
'General Marks sir now that the bottle neck of the processing busses have been worked out we could produce ten a day or almost 3600 the first year.
However if parts and lab skin production rates can be increased I could see us double or tripling the units after the first 6 months to a year".
"My God John, thank goodness this gamble paid off.....can they defend themselves"?
John nodded and said, "Both are so quick they can reach into your chest and pull your still beating heart out before you can say ouch sir! They both
are better than experts with blades or guns and if they go up against soft human targets there will be no contest".
"My God John".
"No sir just hard work and some amazing tec with a few lucky breaks. If you don't mind sir would you ask your aide to try and hit Adam or Eve in the
The aide who was a big burly Captain said, "Hey I don't want to hurt them or worse yet, have my heart ripped out"!
Adam laughed and came forward still smiling. "I will not touch you Captain I promise; give me your best shot"!
For a big guy the Captain was fast yet after repeated attempts he finally tried the normal big guy tactic of a full body tackle. The result was, he
ended up on the floor never once making contact...
Adam hung from one of the "I" beams by 4 fingers then dropped to the floor and in a non hurried voice asked if the Captain wanted help as he reached
down pulling the Captain to his feet.
The Captain was so impressed and out of breath he told the General, "I need to get me one of these".
Everyone laughed, including Adam and Eve.
