for a piece on l2 monkeys, opinions solicited:
What do subscribers feel about the link between Jeffrey Goines, his army, and
the red haired doctor who ultimately liberates the deadly virus. Can it be
logically inferred that Goines has staged the animal breakout as a "feint" to
draw attention from the actual plan to steal the deadly virus and infect the
Does Cole in fact precipitate the very disaster he is sent back to observe in
the context of his drugged up conversation with Goines in the madhouse in
l99O? Is this clear, or inferential?
Finally, the redhaired scientist with the virus is last scene in conversation
on the airplane with his seatmate, the woman who is clearly one of the
scientists from the future. She says she is "Jones -- I'm in insurance." Has
she been sent back from the future to somehow retrieve the virus from the
redhead? Or is this is her l996 self, there by happenstance? (An intriguing
note re this "tyrannous future": the scientists might very well have the
power to "get there ahead of time" and stop the virus from ever being spread
in the first place. Yet they do not. Are they only interested in improving
their own present, lest they end that present by preventing the epidemic from
ever taking place in the first place?)
Any comments would be helpful   thanks   hr greenberg md   endit
