Readers who read The Human Division might remember one of the parts of that novel that sees the main characters encountering a ship run entirely by a brain. It was one of the more intriguing developments in the story, and now, we get more of a background into why that happened.

You can also read the excerpt from the novelā€™s first part, The Life Of The Mind over on Tor.com.
