"One of the great tragedies of mankind is that morality has been hijacked by religion. So now people assume that religion and morality have a necessary connection."
- Arthur C. Clarke

Controllable Drone Army  
  Darknet sorcerer uses gestures to control a network of drone servants.  

Philips believes that she has darknet sorcerer Loki trapped in a secure computer lab.

Gragg concentrated on the plane of D-Space. The entire floor plan was replicated there, spread out around him a life-sized wire-frame model overlaid on the GPS grid...

Gragg looked far beyond the concrete walls of Building Twenty-Nine, to distant, glowing call-outs in D-Space. He selected dozens of virtual objects he'd stored there, then launchd his prearranged summoning sequence, making somatic gestures and speaking the unlock code to the VOIP module...

"This is your last warning: surrender..."

Loki shook his head. "You're not thinking in enough dimensions, Doctor. Only part of me is in this building..."

Squads of heavily armed Korr guards ran to take up positions next to a guard shack ringed with highway barriers and razor wire at the perimeter gate...

The roar of speeding engines suddenly came in on the wind...

They both turned to see one, then six, then fifteen, then thirty cars screaming in from several vectors... The cars swerved with remarkable coordination, all converging on Building Twenty-Nine like a school of piranha...

Ross examined the screens. "Computer-controlled vehicles. Dozens of them. The Factions call them AutoM8s."

On-screen the intruder was busy moving his arms - manipulating invisible objects...

[Loki] drew another glowing red box across D-Space to encompass the entire facility. With a click of his pinky he brought up a pop-up menu, then selected Kill Everyone.
