I wonder if everyone feels as nervous as this, Poole asked himself. Is this the last moment I'll be in control of my own mind? Still, I've learned to trust the technology of this age; up to now it hasn't let me down. Of course, as the old saying goes, there's always a first time...

I assume that the holes in the skullcap are so she can do a little DIY hacking later on e.g. LEDs hooked up to thumbtack probes to show her thought patterns.
I wonder if she is more susceptible to getting her mind read by THEM -- are tinfoil beanies still effective with a plastic skull? could it lead to some weird capacitance effect?
