"Everyone experiences the Link differently. We will try to get the patch into a primary or secondary sensory cortex, but it's never perfect. It will take some months getting used to. Once you become familiar with your own personal cognitive manifestation of the Link, I'm told the boys have a sort of language worked out for communication. Subjects tell us that the experience is inarticulable in conventional means of communication. Most of they guys who attempt to describe it just produce an incoherent sequence of words. None of us can tell you what to expect, you will have to learn intuitively."
"What the boys in the lab tell you is all crap. Linkage is like talking to God. The first time it opened for me, it the whole room wavered and spun like 600 mics of LSD. I heard these voices. I felt the presence of the dead. I swear to you, I saw my dear departed mother. So sit down and enjoy this, because once the Link integrates it's part of you, and you won't hear those angels no more."
