Confine yourself to observing and you always miss the point of your own life.
The object can be stated this way: Live the best life you can. Life is a game
whose rules you learn if you leap into it and play it to the hilt. Otherwise,
you are caught off balance, continually surprised by the shifting play. Nonplayers
often whine and complain that luck always passes them by. They refuse
to see that they can create some of their own luck.
Bellonda is trying to discuss Duncan with Odrade, who's mind is wandering. She thinks of the scattering BG cells going out with their holds full of sandtrout. They have noted that Idaho may have memories from more than one ghola lifetime. They fear that Idaho and Murbella's children may have dangerous talents. They hope to one day incorporate the HM speed into the BG. Murbella and Sheeana's sexual exploits are causing trouble among the acolytes. They hope to learn if the HMs evolved from the BG if Murbella survives The Agony. Tamalane enters from examining their new axlotl tanks and declares that Scytale is witholding vital information. Odrade orders lunch for them in her workroom. Odrade notes that Bellonda has stopped calling Murbella "that whore" and thinks it's a step in the right direction.
