Some of these may need to be edited or maybe snipped. But there are
some real gems in here. My feeling, however is that we should stop
_The Matrix_ references here at the source, although this seems to
be a sarcastic joke, so I don't know. Also I don't know if robot *has*
a 2ndary objective, but we should decide now, because one of these nki
has the power to change rfk canon.

Leonard -- does robot have a 2ndary objective? Secondary objectives
don't seem very zen to me.
