You only need one to make a billion copies.

It is not certain if you can copy them at all. Remember they state the talented one (or part of him) might "meet" the capsuleer?

I think you are reading too much into the "meet the capsuleer" thing. Who knows, maybe B and H are (like Burke and Hare did) only supplying the capsuleer with the brain to study.

I think that they were "testing" him to become a capsuleer and during such he goes into mind-lock which is described in this short story called the Jovian Wetgrave if you don't want to read all of it starts to talk about it toward the bottom two lines of the second last page onward.

I'm going to pretend they're mapping his brain somehow, and using that data to make implants. Or they're using the data to rework a module somehow.

I'm also going to pretend that I don't have a head full of Soylent Green.

And I'm also going to pretend that "meet the capsuleer" means just that, because I like to think that when I'm docked at stations, I occasionally go out and mingle with the commoners.

All this "Implants are people!" talk is creeping me out.

My interpretation of the story is that the guy is indeed being used to manufacture a +5% hacking implant, and the nanobots that were injected into him are being used to simultaneously present his brain with subconscious puzzles to solve, track down the bits of the brain that are solving that puzzle, and prepare that portion of the brain to be transplanted into a hardwiring. That is, they were reverse engineering his brain in order to dissect it more cleanly. What's the fun of using an implant to improve your hacking chances, if it comes packaged with flashbacks of a mugging in a back street?

Soylent Green is people.

Hardwirings are just bits of people.

I got the feeling that "men in black" had found a set of talents the capsuler had ordered, but rather than hardwiring or implants, then a body to be jumped into for a specific skillset? I have different clones for different ships and situations.this seems kinda the same... srry if someone else said this already but i didn`t have time to read tall the replies. Great story thanks :)
