What’s the thing’s range?

— Eight femtoseconds anterior; sixty-four picoseconds posterior; twelve billion screams lateral; a kilometer along the z-axis.

It flies?

— It... No. It’s instantaneous, so it couples pi(r)^6 — radiatively — to its own eigenvector. By the time an observer inquires the effect is long complete.

So… it flies.

— Senator, it doesn’t fly so much as create and destroy the universe. Fortunately the speed of information is such that we never detect it. You could say it’s theoretical.

And this sideways motion: Did you say screams?

— For lack of a better word. Sheer madness awaits.

Now you’re talking!
