Seven triple four began doubting his mission. The Kazmo believed he had a special insight into where the other versions of him resided. The Kazmo were correct, although it wasn’t as easy as they perceived. The silver machines didn’t know or understand that many of his other versions were fakes. Usually existing for about fourteen minutes, triple four suspected these other versions existed to distract the Kazmo and their resources.
That fact scared triple four. If he was right, his other selves knew about the Kazmo and their project.
They probably also knew about him, too, then. But if they knew about him, it could be that the fake others might only exist in his perceptions.
What he needed was a way to figure this out. If he couldn’t, he didn’t have a reason to exist.
