Timo accompanies Ikari as the Nym keeps his appointment with the Arc's dolphins, and a visitor from the stars. In scifi heist Inception, mind hackers build dreams where they con their marks into giving up valuable information. And it gets worse, farther up into the brown California hills: "There are always a few groups of homeless people and packs of feral dogs living out beyond the last hillside shacks. The cowboys have to "interface" with the matrix through "slotting into" feminized cyberspace decks; certain females, however, require no such mediation: they are already, by implication, a part of it.
