Making workable choices occurs in a crucible of informative mistakes. Thus
Intelligence accepts fallibility. And when absolute (infallible) choices are
not known, Intelligence takes chances with limited data in an arena where
mistakes are not only possible but also necessary.
It took eight days to plan Odrades departure and to synchronize with Teg's attack. She had taken advice from everyone and shared Murbella's Other Memory. She says her goodbyes and boards the no-ship. Nineteen hours from Junction they transfer to a lighter for the rest of the trip. Odrade is shocked to find that the pilot is a cyborg, Clairby. They have promissed him new life as a ghola as reward for this suicide mission. They land on a flat and head towards the former Guild building, which has changed little, just as Teg suspected. Clairby will blow his ship as soon as possible. While they wait in the lobby, Odrade gives Suipol, their acolyte aid, a lesson on Ixian bueracracy and their failure to adapt to an unlimited universe. All for the benifit of the comeyes.
