Working notes from the Scandinavian Institute for Computational Vandalism

It stops the voices

153
00:22:56,202 –> 00:22:58,408
I can hear myself.

154
00:22:58,495 –> 00:23:01,069
– You hear your own voice?
– Yes.

155
00:23:01,165 –> 00:23:03,834
– Good.
– You called me a scanner.

156
00:23:05,502 –> 00:23:07,542
What is that?

157
00:23:09,298 –> 00:23:14,423
A freak of nature,
born with a certain form of ESP.

158
00:23:15,471 –> 00:23:20,975
A derangement of the synapses,
which we call telepathy.

159
00:23:23,562 –> 00:23:25,769
It could be a disease, possibly.

160
00:23:25,856 –> 00:23:29,391
Or a result of radiation.
We don’t really know why.

161
00:23:33,072 –> 00:23:35,111
Who are you?

162
00:23:36,825 –> 00:23:38,865
My name is Dr. Paul Ruth.

163
00:23:39,495 –> 00:23:41,404
I’m a psycho-pharmacist by trade,

164
00:23:41,497 –> 00:23:45,197
specializing
in the phenomenon of scanners.

165
00:23:48,712 –> 00:23:52,757
The woman in the shopping mall,
what were you doing to her?

166
00:23:53,926 –> 00:23:56,132
I wasn’t doing anything to her.

167
00:23:56,220 –> 00:23:58,378
It was her.

168
00:23:58,472 –> 00:24:02,968
She was… forcing me…

169
00:24:03,686 –> 00:24:05,725
‘To what?’

170
00:24:06,689 –> 00:24:08,728
‘To think about her.’

171
00:24:10,651 –> 00:24:13,687
‘The 50 people that were here
appeared to disturb you.

172
00:24:13,779 –> 00:24:17,065
– ‘Why was that?’
– ‘They talked too loud.

173
00:24:17,157 –> 00:24:19,993
– ‘They talked, and they talked…’
– ‘Really?

174
00:24:20,077 –> 00:24:22,402
‘I didn’t see their lips move, did you?’

175
00:24:22,496 –> 00:24:28,416
‘No, it was the other voices, the ones
without lips. They were drowning me.’

176
00:24:28,502 –> 00:24:30,791
I couldn’t stop them.

177
00:24:33,257 –> 00:24:35,795
The injection I gave you, with the needle,

178
00:24:35,885 –> 00:24:39,633
– what happened to the voices?
– They stopped.

179
00:24:39,722 –> 00:24:43,885
The drug is called Ephemerol.

180
00:24:43,976 –> 00:24:46,182
It’s a scanner-suppressant.

181
00:24:46,270 –> 00:24:50,018
It does nothing
when it’s given to ordinary human beings.

182
00:24:50,107 –> 00:24:54,734
When given to a scanner,
it prevents the flow of telepathy.

183
00:24:54,820 –> 00:24:57,940
It stops the voices.


 

533
01:08:04,118 –> 01:08:11,532
I want you to access the RIPE programme.
I do not have ConSec computer clearance.

534
01:08:11,625 –> 01:08:13,748
Neither do I.

535
01:08:13,836 –> 01:08:15,912
You do have a nervous system.

536
01:08:16,005 –> 01:08:18,542
So does a computer.

537
01:08:20,968 –> 01:08:25,760
And you can scan the computer
as you would…

538
01:08:26,390 –> 01:08:28,430
another human being.
