I'm sorry, did she just say there were about 5,000 cryo chambers down there???

How big is that basement?

We will be talking about that tommorow, I promise :)

*As a mini spoiler, we're talking about 5 levels each about 3-4 square blocks in size.*

The numbers are interesting too - I suspect that we have about 10,000 sexless clones (drones?) that we know of. Not big enough to be an army, too big to be anything else. Unless, of course, there are other clone installations.

The clones obviously have uses. Remember this part?

With only a nervous system, they have a very limited life span. They need a personality graft to do anything useful. If I was a very long-lived person with a low tolerance for risk, I could use them for meeting the real world. 5,000 to 10,000 is a bit of overkill, though. Very curious as to their real purpose.

They also found the smart goo with enough connections to mimick a human brain early in the comic.

That could have been an early immortal or it could be a holding tank for transfering to these type of clones.

Sound very much like the $65 screwdriver...

I wonder ...

What if the smart goo is used in making these clones?

What if the clones are needed for the disembodied intelligences that are destabilizing the universe?

What happens when Bellisarious finds out about these?

Are the clones immune to the plagues (there seems to be two of them)?

At a guess, how far off am I in my guesses/assumptions/direction?
