Freefall 3481

Niomi wraps up

Sounds like this station
is having a few problems.
Good thing I'm here to get
them back on track. Though
I do charge extra for that.

Station. Please allow Winston Thurmad and Florence Ambrose unescorted access to apartment Gattaca.
Understood.
If you have any needs that must be addressed…
Oh, don't be so formal. Our home is your home. Come inside and make yourselves comfortable.
And since we're inside, clothing is ♪optional♪.
Excuse me. I must speak with my wife before she does something truly embarrassing.

Gattaka- 1997y dystopian thriller about the future of genetic technologies and their impact on human freedom of choice.

Tess…
I want to see how she's put together. I certainly can't ask her to take off her clothes if I'm unwilling to take off mine.
She is exactly what I've been talking about. Animal testing before human alterations take place. Enhanced intellect. Modifications to the body type. Extended life span. She is a fully functional example of a transwolf.
Ms. Ambrose is our guest and our son's… associate. You are making her uncomfortable.
Not nearly as uncomfortable as she is making you.

I would be more comfortable if you put on your dress or a robe.
For you, anything. You have been so brittle since Winston and Florence arrived.
Animal testing. There is a failing in that few considerations are given to those we create as stepping stones on the transhumanist path of self improvement.
One consideration
is they
become
in-laws.
I find such considerations easier when they are abstract rather than when they are waiting outside the door with my son.

We have come to an agreement on attire. My apologies for the delay.
You can still take off your clothes if you wish.
Water. We did not know your tastes.
Water
is fine.
We considered blood, but the only blood available on this station is human.
Really, water is fine.

Arrival at the parent's apartment

Please sit. This is a time for us to ask questions and get to know each other.
I'll be happy to answer any of your questions that I can.
So, what's it like to be in heat?

Adult humans produce sex hormones constantly.
If you're looking for differences in thought, a more enlightening question might be “What is it like NOT to be in heat?”
Ha! She's clever.
Well, to be honest, it's not the first time I've been asked that question.

Some believe that free will is a prerequisite for a soul. The ability to choose for oneself between good and evil.
You must follow properly authorized direct orders. Do you consider yourself to have free will?
I have free will. Most of the time, I'm not under the influence of direct orders.
Does having any amount of free will meet the prerequisite, or is it an all or nothing deal?
Thousands of people are working on that very question. Given the number of philosophers involved, I do not expect to live long enough to see the answer.

Arrival at the parent's apartment

Who can give you direct orders?
Mr. Raibert. He's a high-level executive at Ecosystems unlimited. Pragmatic and a little bit scary.
Are you under the influence of his orders now?
I have no current orders from him and I can't say there's anyone else who can give me orders. I'm operating on my own.
[=1.2]Why no orders?
It's either trust or apathy. I hope it's the former. Given how busy he is, I rather suspect it's the latter.

Mom. Dad. You're looking at
Florence like she's a science
experiment. You're not seeing
her as a person. Take a step
back and look at her again.
Sorry, I couldn't
resist doing the vacant doggy stare.
Sense of humor. That's definitely a plus.
