— Miesiąc —  zaczął. — Tylko miesiąc, żebym mógł doprowadzić swoje sprawy do porządku. Ale dla naszych umysłów o dopiero co zwiększonej pojemności, funkcjonujących z prędkością eksaflopsów, miesiąc równie dobrze mógłby być wiecznością. Zanim jego identyfikator zadźwięczał w hali przylotów, w sześciowymiarowej sztuce zdążyły powstać i upaść całe ruchy i organizacje. Napisano, zrecenzowano i we wspólnych salach przedyskutowano opasłe tomy czaspoezji, które już przysporzyły sobie wrogów. Już dawno porzuciliśmy bezsensowny koncept ludzkich awatarów. Większość z nas nie była w żaden sposób ucieleśniona: egzystowaliśmy w postaci zawiłych fraktalnych kształtów na cienkich jak pajęczyna lub migoczących subtelnym kolorem cieni skrzydłach.

Martin był odrażający. Stanowił jedną z tych wlekących się mas ciała, które zostawiliśmy. I przestraszył się na nasz widok.

— Demony — powiedział.

Cóż, tę kwestię już rozwiązaliśmy, ale nikt na naszym serwerze nie miał cierpliwości, żeby go doinformować. Nie był w stanie pojąć czasopoezji, niezdolny do postrzegania w więcej niż trzech wymiarach. Podrzucaliśmy mu instrukcje, ale całkowicie je zignorował. Usiadł w rogu, podtrzymując swoją wirtualną głowę, jak gdyby ktokolwiek tutaj mógł wciąż odczuwać ból.

Kiedy zostawiliśmy go w spokoju na wystarczająco długi czas, coś uniosło się z jego wirtualnego ciała, o którym prawie zapomnieliśmy.

Boże. Te odgłosy żucia i mlaskania. Smród. Ktoś zlitował się nad nim i dał mu program pozwalający na wezwanie wirtualnego ducha jedzenia. Przykucnął na podłodze, żrąc świństwa: soloną wieprzowinę, ciasto czekoladowe, rigatoni, winogrona. Gapił się – same migdałki i zęby.

W momencie, kiedy zebraliśmy się wokół, aby lepiej się przyjrzeć, beknął.

Odlecieliśmy w eter.

— Świr — stwierdziliśmy. — Świnia. — Żeby tak nurzać się w zmysłowych udogodnieniach i ignorować leżące u swoich stóp piękno! Liniami czystego światła rysowaliśmy jego karykatury i ukrywaliśmy je w jeszcze niedostrzegalnych dla niego wymiarach, przerzucając je między sobą i chichocząc.

Wróciłam jednak, kiedy inni znudzili się zabawą.

Dlaczego mnie zaintrygował? Co takiego chciałam zrozumieć? Tak trudno było przypomnieć sobie stary, zły świat.

Martin przełknął swoje tiramisu i wbił we mnie wzrok.

Jego głos był matowy, gruby i organiczny, mimo że gdyby przeczytał instrukcje, mógłby nadać mu wijącego się tonu skrzypiec.

— Przyszłaś tu, żeby nadal się ze mnie śmiać?

— Nie wiem.

Dlaczego wydawał się tak znajomy? Dlaczego współczułam mu pomimo całego swojego obrzydzenia?

— Myślałem, że jestem gotowy — powiedział. — Myślałem, że czytanie o tym przed uploadem wystarczy. Ale nic z tego nie rozumiem. A najmniej was wszystkich. Najmniej to jedzenie zaprogramowane na smak... — domu, nie powiedział.

Spojrzał na mnie jak na ciepły chleb. Jakby mnie potrzebował.

— Czy chcesz... — Potrząsnęłam głową. Czego mógłby chcieć ktoś taki jak Martin? — Pomocy przy przeglądaniu instrukcji?

— Jeszcze nie mogę. Patrzę na nie i mam odruch wymiotny. Macie nade mną taką przewagę, że już nigdy tego nie nadrobię.

Odfrunęłam do tyłu na wypadek, gdyby faktycznie zwymiotował. Nie wiedziałam, czy ma pozwalający na to program, ale naprawdę nie chciałam się o tym przekonywać.

— Możesz po prostu ze mną posiedzieć? — spytał Martin. Teraz już błagalnie. — Tylko na chwilę. Po prostu zjedz ze mną. Tak jak dawniej.

Tak jak dawniej.

Dlaczego nie mogłam sobie przypomnieć? I dlaczego chciałam? W jaki sposób cokolwiek z tej szarej, fizycznej przeszłości miałoby mieć ze mną związek?

Ale to spojrzenie w jego oczach. Znał mnie. Najwidoczniej byliśmy przyjaciółmi. Moglibyśmy być...

Kochankami.

Boże. Tak. Mgliście sobie przypominałam. Byliśmy kochankami. Chcieliśmy być razem w tym świecie. Ledwo mogę to teraz pojąć, ale w jakiś sposób pomimo całego potu i śluzu, w które obfitował ten akt, Martin był dla mnie ważny.

Czy ktokolwiek z tego roju oświeconych dusz był dla mnie kiedykolwiek istotny? Sztuka była. Czaspoezja. Czysta, nieskrępowana ograniczeniami fizycznymi radość życia. Czymże w porównaniu z tym byli inni ludzie? Nikt z nas nie był dla nikogo niczym innym jak tym, co sami stworzyliśmy.

Nagle poczułam się tym lekko zaniepokojona. Wystarczająco, żeby w próbie zrozumienia podjąć choćby małe ryzyko.

Z bólem wydobyłam z pamięci wspomnienie przechodzącego procesy biologiczne ciała. Aby zjeść wirtualne jedzenie potrzebowałam wirtualnych ust, zębów, języka, przełyku i żołądka... Zmiana nadeszła razem z dreszczem tak łatwo jak każda inna, chociaż dziwnie i nieporęcznie było znowu mieć wnętrzności.

Uklękłam obok Martina. Podniosłam winogrono. Stłumiłam obrzydzenie, strząsnęłam owoc na język i zaczęłam żuć. Smak był... fizyczny. Było to nawet przyjemne na sposób, do którego nie przywykłam. Zmarszczyłam czoło, połykając.

Wciąż tego nie rozumiałam, ale jedzenie przestało mnie obrzydzać.

— Musimy cię nauczyć — powiedziałam. — Powoli, w przystępny dla ciebie sposób. Zajmie to sporo czasu. Ale może w zamian też nam coś przypomnisz? — Zawahałam się i przełknęłam dumę. — Podasz mi czekoladę?

Z wdzięcznością napotkał moje spojrzenie. I zabraliśmy się za jedzenie.
