“I need to contact Special Agent Phillip Henry in Division M and let him know what the fuck is going on,” Grant says. “Then we need to contact the NIH and FEMA and alert them of a potential metahuman contagion, and alert other countries of the same thing, and get them this information so they can start ramping up to try to counter it.”
Artemis LaFleur shakes his head. “That would be unwise.”

There were two competing theories about the difficulties involved in superluminal navigation.
The first, popular in universities and laboratories, stated that all things were measurable, and as far as navigation was concerned, all measurable things could be measured to any required accuracy. It was, according to this theory, simply a matter of finding the numbers and entering them in the correct order.
