And another quote from that same thread...
An observation I made... and I still believe that I was right on the mark.
"I want to call your attention to how the " spiral" for Matrix started. It was because Captain Dave mentioned that there might be something operating negatively that was HUMAN in its background..... suddenly all of Matrixs defense systems.... whether he realized it or not..... started lighting up. I could see it happening but there was nothing I could do about it..... click, click, click, click..... defense defense defense.... which translated attack, attack, attack."
