We know that the Ware process can destroy sleeper’s minds - to the point that if they’re diconnected, they die. There’s not enough brain function left to keep the body alive. It doesn’t happen in all cases - Arnaud seems to have survived. But all the Beijing sleepers died after disconnection.
In most cases, it seems that when you wake a sleeper, what you’re left with is a mindless body, that can’t survive.
We have recovered 12 sleepers from the Sacramento facility. They have not yet been woken. We are going to be asked to do something to save them.
Echo technology was able to reproduce the personalities of dead people. Emily’s predecessor, Loop 15, was actually created using this technology.
The Ware headset is able to record, store, and re-load the dreamer’s memory state. If you have a recorded mind, the Ware headset can put it back into a dreamer’s head.
One the one hand, we have bodies that can’t survive because they have no minds. On the other hand, we have recorded minds that can’t live, because they have no bodies. Ware technology is able to transfer thoughts and memories into a sleeper’s brain.
There were several people, including Elizabeth Leighton, lost in the bombing of the Myriad facility. If Echo can restore their minds, those minds could be transferred to the mindless bodies from the Sacramento site.
In the early, distorted, videos from phase 1, Elizabeth Leighton doesn’t say “help me” - she says “help us”. Wherever she’s transmitting from, she’s not alone.
Is that our task? To restore the minds of Elizabeth and the other bomb victims to living bodies?
