Some Will Be Saved

But Dad, those other worlds in the Net, like V-School and Xanadu and the Dreaming... they're... not real. They're just virtual, right?

Nothing is ever "just" virtual, son. But yes, they aren't the same thing as bodyspace. You've known that for some time now.

So if somebody were to blow up everything in bodyspace, wouldn't that wipe out the virtual worlds, too?

It might indeed, son. It might indeed. But though many may die, we know that some will be saved.
