"Nanofabricated animats may be infinitessimally tiny, but their
electrons will be exactly the same size as ours -- and their effect on
human reality will be as immeasurable as the universe. Like an
inverted SETI program, humanity must now look inward, constantly
scanning technology space for animats, or their progenitors. The first
alien life may not come from the stars, but from ourselves."
