The Frazmastat is Bad but the Weeblocken is Good

Picture lines of people, for the sake of this image one every fifty feet, and pull back, and it’s a grid, crossing lines, endlessly ramifying. And one of the people shivers, and blinks, and then announces, for example, “The Frazmastat is a problem, causing congestion, and should be eliminated.” A visible pulse through the air carries this to the next in line, one or another way, and the next person says, “The Frazmastat is a problem, causing congestion and should be eliminated.” This is not a game of ‘telephone’ so they get the basic info right. Then a pulse comes from another direction and a person announces, “The Frazmastat is not a problem, it’s a good thing.” Someone reacts by repeating the same words, and then another. Then someone else reacts by stating “No, the Frazmastat is a problem, causing congestion, and should be eliminated.” That is passed on. Then the contrary is returned. Eventually the back and forth about the Frazmastat dies down. Then someone shudders, and blinks, and announces, “The Weeblocken is good, though there’s a downside.” Someone else shudders and blinks and repeats this, down a diagonal line. And someone else and so on. A little later, “The Weeblocken is bad, and there’s no upside…” Decades pass. . .a hand comes and unplugs some of the people, and plugs in others. . .

Someone shudders and makes an announcement…
