3-Niti (part 28)

Previously ...

Usually it’s explained by changing of  time perception by different age groups. Kids think that time drags as slow as turtle, young men think that time moves as a duck on the way to a lake, the further the faster… And it’s impossible to change anything. But there is alternative explanation of that phenomenon. To understand that you should have knowledge about cloud computing space. When technological processes are changing methods of  processing and storage of information are also changing. I think you’ve heard already such concepts as a cloud hosting, a cloud computing, a cloud storage.


Even its creators couldn’t give better explanation because the development of that system is still continuing.  But metaphorically it can be explained in such way: there is huge supercomputer which is connected to a world-web. The cost of such “super brain” is very expensive and to repay expenditures for its building it’s necessary to give a full load of serous computational tasks the results of which will bring a big profit or to sell abilities of that mechanism to calculate in parts very fast.
For this purpose there is a special box inside of the supercomputer space the size of it similar to a  general computer. It has got a separated RW memory and read-only memory, processor and channel of connection to the net. All those settings a customer will chose for himself. If he will need higher speed computer to solve his task the customer  will pay in addition for some extra bases of his virtual computer. If he needs more space he pays for extra space. All settings in some extent are elastic and in case of a peak load on the processor its capacity grows automatically. This is very comfortable and it acts till there is existence of a reserve in the memory and in the processors. But when projects will take off all free space and nothing will be left for spreading then to receive new space would be possible only with increasing of capacity of super computer or stealing calculative space from less exacting projects.

…I noticed that you looked sad for the last few days, what’s going on in your mind?
Everything is the same but it seems that someone is stealing my time.
Stealing what? What are you talking about? You mean that if I talk to you, try to make you leave home from time to time - I’m stealing your time?
No, my dear, I like to spend time with you. I want to say that I have less and less time… Days  glimpse away and if earlier it looked like an old tram with big windows is passing by in front of you but you could examine every window and remember all of them. And now everything is moving so fast that it reminds a high-speed train and if the engineer  adds more speed it will look like a cine-projector, and all windows will merge in one window.


I understand what are you talking about. In my childhood I remember when my parents took me to the cinema I could hardly wait the last seconds. I looked at my dad’s watch and thought that its second-hand was moving so slowly. Now when I’m looking at my watch I think the same about the minute-hand. There is something in your sadness. I’ll go and lay down in front of TV in my brooding mood.
You can’t do this. TV is broken.
How did it happen? That huge hole on the screen that has size of a pan, you call “is broken”?
How did you learn about the pan?
I’ve understood. But we shouldn’t leave it here. I have to carry this cold carcass and bury its mortal remains in a trashcan. Where homeless-vultures will carry away the rest of it.
And take laptop with you…
You’re too fast for punishment. But now we truly have more time. I think you’ve won at least 3 hours from eternity. It’s interesting what are you going to do next in that righteous war?
- I… I’ve broke the blender =(
- What did it do to you? It seems that your worlds never crossed over…
- Do you remember that video where phone was turned into dust with the help of a blender?
- Hm… It means that we cross out mobil phone?
- Don’t mock at me. Now I’m free. I have extra 5 hours in a day.
- What can I tell you. If we look back to my previous comparison where the denomination of time turns minutes into seconds, and hour into minutes. You have extra 5 minutes every day.
- And what should I do? Where did that denomination come from?

3-Niti (part 26)

Previously ...

Pasha carefully took winchester and gave it to Sheldon.
3-NITI has asked me to give it to you. Before it asked me to switch it off 3-NITI told me about an ancient computer. All notes should be there.


Sheldon took HD, smiled nicely and said to Howard, - Howard, be so kind, install this HD on my   laptop. In answer Howard sardonically said that the existence of the group depends only on whether is there a man who can put a necessary detail into computer. He opened a little box and put HD in it and gave it to Sheldon. Sheldon connected that device to his laptop. The screen  blinked and the image of  3-NITI appeared on it. The lamp of computer’s camera turned on and the Robot salutatory smiled to the audience.
- It means that the interface has recognized the people here, - Sheldon explained the smile of 3-NITI.
Hello, - the image of 3-NITI addressed to the present company, - if you see this recording it means that all participants of the mission that was focused on deliverance of consciousness of one supercomputer against influence of another are gathered in front of the screen. 
I want to tell everyone what the Dr Sheldon Cooper and I were doing the last few days. During those days all my available resources were directed to study the abilities of men to control the surrounding world by means of their desires. We’ve  analyzed human history for two centuries. Unfortunately we couldn’t explain that phenomena. However the facts speak for themselves - desires of people are controlling the world. It’s amazing, someone makes a wish while looking at falling stars, someone makes a wish while blowing out candles on a birthday cake, another prays and all of these organizes a matrix of desires of all mankind. 
While I studied the effects of  all those interactions, I’ve found one small gap and that is a sleep. A man who fell into special condition of dream is able directly to interact with the matrix of desires and to go straight to his target. But there is one problem: the equipment that can control such condition is not exist. That is why I suggest to use two stages of dropping-off to sleep.
The first sleep was hypnagogic and in the second sleep there will be equipment. And there will be what we need. And now about hypnosis, I’ve sent you a preliminary list of necessary equipment to control bodies. Only Pasha and Sasha will have to fall in sleep because there is strong emotional connection between them and it will allow to hold action in the frame of  the required aim. If everything is ready for the first immersion I suggest to start. Pasha and Sasha have to lay down on the beds in such way that they could see the screen of the laptop. Only they have to look to the screen. I’ll lead them into hypnosis and program their immersion.

Sheldon pressed the pause and led teenagers to the separate room where everything was ready for the travel to Morpheus country.
  Pasha and Sasha changed their clothes quickly and took their places on the beds. They put bracelets with detectors on their arms and the laptop was put between the beds. Everything was ready Sheldon turned on the recording and quietly left the room. When he came back in half an hour the teenagers slept…

3-Niti (part 25)

Previously ...

Sergey’s education consisted of computer games that were directed to train team's playing skills. 3-NITI purposefully started one on-line computer game after another on students’ computers. The purpose of education was to reach synergy and simultaneity of the group. The chosen games were different and though no one from military students saw the games before, everyone found upgraded character for himself. All the characters marched out clear and in unison as army men in the time of cleaning-up the grounds: they all together logged in and set up  interface, studied the abilities of characters and after that they joined to a group (party) and fulfilled a task. The name for the groups or parties always was “Technephagos”. The reason why 3-NITI chose such name, it explained very simple. It was combination of two Greek words: art and  devour.
But Sergey still had some doubts on that case. But one more thing brought big confusion to Sergey - all the characters in the games were female. It wasn’t an obstacle for the game but it brought the thought that 3-NITI could be a girl in reality. But Sergey didn’t decide to ask about it directly. And there wasn’t time for questions. The games were changing one another on the screen. Their group smashed down next Super-boss or fought for a castle with another strong team or raced on a racetrack  pushing aside the cars of competitors. More than 10 games changed on the screen during 5 hours. But suddenly everything stopped. On Sergey’s screen appeared the writing that he had to lead himself further training. After that 3-NITI sent him file with the list of games, user names and passwords of gamers and short instructions that pointed the targets, locations and time of future battles in games. And on the bottom was written: “Now you’re 3-NITI”. And there was the list of passwords from different websites with mark - 3-NITI.
Sergey hadn’t anything to say except “OK”.
 - We’ll meet when you’re ready, - 3-NITI answered and disappeared.
It was easy to say but to fulfill the whole list was almost impossible. But Sergey decided because they succeed in solving the task till now they would succeed in it in future as well. He suggested to fasten the good result and to continue exercises after classes. The students were so inspired with their success that they agreed to stay after classes. But the hunger already started to remind about itself, they decided to send two students to the nearest shop to buy food and the rest of the group continued to work…

 The group united again after they circled for sometime. The place where they gathered wasn't looked noticeable but when they looked more carefully they could notice a masking net that covered the entrance into a cave. Only from the close distance was possible to see that it wasn’t real stone but a masking net. From the distance of 15 meters the design of material completely merged with stony pattern of the mountain. The group rapidly ran into the cave looking from one side to another. Howard stayed outside for sometime, perhaps he did something with prints that led to the cave.
In the cave one of the guys cast away the masking net from one of the walls. Behind it were hidden motorbikes. Sheldon invited all to follow him and went into the deep of the cave. But Leonard stopped him and asked something. 
Leonard suggested me to tell you about our alarm system and I decided that it’s important to know in case of emergency.
After that he took keychain from his pocket and pushed one of its buttons. Nothing happened immediately but something changed in the room. All the entrances disappeared and they felt cold wind and a smoke swam along the walls. Those actions were accompanied by strange sounds and pulsation of the walls. It seemed that the cave would ruin, and as confirmation to that the stones from one of the walls began to crack and fall down. And the same time a ghost appeared in the aperture! It was transparent but so visible that Sasha began to yell and Pasha’s knees began to tremble. 
Sheldon was satisfied with produced impression and pushed the button again and suddenly everything disappeared. The ghost melted away and the wall came back to its place, the pulsation, cold wind and smoke stopped. The teens breathed with a relief.  
After that Sasha went from shout to tears and continued to ask: “What it was? What it was?” A little bit later Sheldon gave full and complete reply. It turned out that the security system didn’t only give danger notice. Using the last technological achievements they equipped the cave with such abilities that any horror house would be jealous. When the invisible pulsation fell in resonance with man heart’s rhythms it brought unconscious horror. The ghost, smoke, falling of stones were 3D Mapping presentation or 4D, because those manipulations involved more human feelings than during a cinema show in stereo-cinema. But those details were unnecessary. And then Sheldon showed them one more trick.
It turned out that all that time they were standing in front of  a big metal door that was covered by the light that came from a lantern which was attached to the opposite wall. That lantern looked like a general lantern which are usually set in underground crossings, tunnels and underground garages but in reality it was a beam of the projector that masked the door. The door became visible only when Sheldon stood in front of it and shut the masking beam with himself. A small entrance hall was behind the door. Sheldon explained that it was disinfective section. When the whole group entered the section the strong wind began to blow and their feet were dipped into water for some seconds. After the cleaning procedure an inside door opened and behind it they saw a big room laden with different devices and cabinets along the walls. There was leather sofa, small coffee table and two arm-chairs in the middle. Everyone went to their own place. 
The bag with 3-NITI was carried by Raj all that time. He took it from his shoulders and put it on the floor. He tried to comment his actions but because he didn’t speak in front of the women, he just sigh and shrugged his shoulders. Sasha continued to stay near the door while Pasha slowly walked around the room, sat in the arm-chair and with a nod invited Sasha to follow his example. Sasha nodded in reply and moved towards the sofa and sat down near Pasha. Her actions brought disapproval exclamations of everybody except Pasha. “Anywhere, but not there!”, - everyone and even quiet Raj shouted.
- This is my place and no one is allowed to sit there, - Sheldon said appearing from nowhere. Sasha had to moved to the center of the sofa and Sheldon with a funny smile sat down on “his” place that he regained in such way and began his story…

But the battle-plane continued to follow the teenagers. After it made a turn, it stubbornly approached towards the group. It seemed that such course of events was expected by bikers because soon they could see mountain tunnel on their way. When the pilot understood that he couldn’t reach the runaways he turned the plane and flew away. The bikers stopped inside of the tunnel and began to take off their helmets one after another. Pasha also took off his helmet and in the next moment he realized that the biker which he squeezed up against the whole time as a marmoset was a girl.  Her fair hair fell off from the helmet and she showed Pasha with a nod that he should release her from his clinging embrace. After that she smiled, snapped his nose with her fingers and gave him a wink. According to all features the leader of the group was tall guy with wry smile on the thin lips. He didn’t have passenger nor load. 
What’s up, scums? - he asked Pasha with stuttering and English accent. - Greet you on American land. My name’s Doctor Sheldon Lee Cooper but for friends I’m just Sheldon.
The girl began to laugh and said:
Shelly.
Sheldon awarded her with vicious look.
My friends, - he began to particularize, - this is Penny, - the girl frankly guffawed but Sheldon continued without paying attention to her laughter, - Leonard Hofstadter, - and the biker in front of the Sasha began to smile and friendly waved to them. - That one that a little below is Howard, swarthy one  is Raj. They don’t speak Russian. Howard might know few phrases and Raj didn’t speak at all in the presence of women till he becomes drunken. As far as I understand you’re Sasha and Pasha?
Pasha amazingly nodded in response.
We don’t have time to talk, - continued Sheldon. -  Exchange clothes and we’ll go on! There are  PTZ cameras everywhere but this specific place is free of them that is why nobody will know about substitution.
Pasha nodded and quickly began to unfasten the zipper of  clothing. Sasha was in a hazy condition but she remembered that she had nothing under her clothing and she turned to the road and also began to take off the clothing. Suddenly in that moment a big school bus drove into the tunnel. Students in the bus wanted to see kingdom of dwarves in the tunnel and because of that all of them clung to the windows but instead they saw completely different view. That view was much more interesting because the kids' screaming which covered the sound of bus engine had been hearing long time after the bus left.
 - We’ve got a trouble, - said Pasha aloud.
Sheldon answered with the smile that in the US they don’t have the law against exhibitionism on the road and gave him the clothes of Howard.
After they exchanged the clothes, Sheldon suggested to Pasha and Sasha to ride one motorbike together. But Pasha confessed that he never rode motor bike. Sasha took the key that Penny offered and evil and red from the shame she said that she knew how and sat down on motor bike. Pasha sat behind Sasha and hugged her waist. Penny put on Sasha’s clothes and sat down behind Howard who wore Pasha’s clothes. She threw off his hands from the handle-bar and showed him to take a seat behind her. The engines began to roar, the group split in two and went to two different sides…

Previously ...

From the early childhood Pasha’s dad tried to accustom his son to science fiction that was why he read him  not a general selection of books about bull-calves and frog-princes. The dad read to Pasha the books of Wales, Azimov, Harrison… Due to that the boy knew about the law of robotechnics for a long time and it was hard to imagine for him that those robots which were described so good in science fiction, the robots that supposed to turn off themselves automatically when they saw violent hands on a person, the robots that should help and care about people in each possible way now they tried to kill him…


In the next moment the Captain pounced into the cabin and said a phrase from which Pasha could separate only three main words: “go, up, now”. The boy understood that they should go to the deck as fast as possible. They again heard shots of motor-board's machine-guns. Another explosion thundered and because of that the boat was strongly shaken. Pasha grabbed the bag and the teenagers followed the Captain. He was explaining something gesticulating. Two battle-planes were flying with roaring in the air, performing unthinkable sharp turns and only few seconds were left to the land. After evaluating the situation Pasha put on his helmet which the Captain proffered to him and the boy fastened the carbine of the bag to his belt.

Sasha continued to whisper something and amplifiers of the helmet clearly repeated every word. The boat constantly maneuvered and it was hard to move around the deck. The Captain had roared something and one of the sailors jumped out from the cockpit. He walked along the deck clinging to every possible ledges as orangutan. The sailor took the bag with the robot and waved to the kids to follow him. Pasha grabbed Sasha’s hand and dragged her after himself to the nose of the boat. The speed with which the boat moved towards the shore was so high that it seemed there wasn’t any chance that the boat would avoid collision. When only some seconds were left before a bang, the boat suddenly turned aside and Pasha, the sailor and Sasha were out thrown overboard and they somersaulting along the surface of the ocean as if they were pebbles from the kids game “pebbles-saucers” they jumped towards the shore. The last meters they overcame by swimming. The sailor managed to drag the bag to the shore and to swim on his back trying to see what’s going on with the boat.

The boat swam in far distance and stopped. The Captain ran out on a deck, waving with white flag. Where did he find that flag was incomprehensible, probably he used something improvised as a flag. The rest of sailors ran out on the deck, hoping that the pilot wouldn't attack when he saw the flag. But when the plane finished  its sharp turn it  fired several missiles against the boat. When the sailors saw it they immediately jumped into water. And the same moment the boat exploded. The first missile exploded and stitched the boat after which the boat  flipped into the air, and the second missile destroyed the boat completely inducing  detonation. When the kids reached the shore they could see only the heads of the sailors and the orange collars of life-jackets. Those life-jackets were blown automatically when men fell into water.
I hope that sailors will be ok, - thought Pasha.     
The sailor that escorted the teenagers took off his shirt, jumped into water and swam to help his friends.
The plane that destroyed the boat was turning towards the shore.
“Mommy”, - thought Pasha.
But the next second four motorbikes jumped out to the shore and abruptly stopped near the teenagers. Pasha understood that the bikers came there to help them, he unclasped the bag and gave it to one of the bikers and sat down behind another one and wrapped his arms around the waist. After that the biker shot off forward. The motorbikes roaring as wild beasts rushed away. They carried guys from a danger towards a smokescreen that was thoughtfully organized by someone on the way to the shore.

“Who knows how these hacker’s things work? - thought Sergey. - If they invite me it means that they’ll teach me everything.” But in reality they invited Sergey to be the teacher. Possibly it was shrewdness to introduce him to a special group that consisted of 12 men as a teacher and a special agent of secret service. The whole time while Kulakov was introducing Sergey, the boy acquiesced but only when he was left by himself with his “students” he really lost courage. He recollected the school and behavior of substitute teachers Sergey sat down at the teachers table and asked the group: “Who is on duty today?” and “Where is the journal?” He decided that the group didn’t need high level of knowledge and general information he can find in Internet without difficulty. That was why he turned on the teacher’s computer and began to seek the information. He typed “curriculum for hackers” in a search engine box. Everything was very easy! He downloaded the curriculum, information with examples and even several training utilities. And the most important he found description of real hacker’s programmer language “Expert”! Sergey got impression that the language was made personally for him.  It turned out that the whole time when Sergey used swear words with his friends he in reality spoke structurally and figuratively. When he looked through the hacker’s website XPERD.COM he agreed with his position and role…

When Sergey finished reading the introduction he started teaching.
“It’s not too hard,” - thought Sergey. Plus the students were  overachievers and accurate. At the end of the first lesson all experimental students could reflect in the browser the phrase “Hi, handsome” that was compiled by the program Expert. On the next lesson Sergey decided to compete in Counter-Strike. But the game didn’t bring any pleasure because someone who had the chat name 3-NITI, so rapidly attacked and shot from the distance everyone as swines in the slaughterhouse and because of that the game lost its sense. From his place Sergey saw screens of all participants and he noticed with surprise that 3-NITI wasn’t among them and with the purpose of raising his authority he announced himself such awful and bloody 3-NITI. That announcement was very effective because the situation was repeated in other games as well. 3-NITI was in every game, he waited for his prey and then he slaughtered them unmercifully.  In “Lineage” he materialised in the center of the city and managed to kill all players as well as town watches that ran out when they heard noise. In the game “Ragnorok” he was surrounded by super bosses and all together they attacked everyone at once. They also tried to download the old “Quake” but it didn’t work and they had to come back to lesson.
Sergey explained to the students-gamers that in those games he showed his super abilities. He so easily could won in those games because his brain was directly connected to the computer. In confirmation of Sergey’s words his speech was displayed on all screens in the classroom. All events that had happened in the games the students brought to the account of their teacher and because they couldn’t understand how he did it, that they wrapped Sergey in their minds with halo of  respect and indisputable authority. From that time the name 3-NITI became the main Sergey’s name. He didn’t understand what had happened but it seemed that the program “NITI-agent” had downloaded together with the studio “Expert”. And though the program was a light weight it succeeded to do it, the program communicated with him. And when Sergey closed a microphone with his hand on the traybar but soon he saw a message on the screen: “There is no point to do it. It serves your interests to expand channels of communication between us, hackers.”
Then Sergey started Word and typed the question: “How should I do it?” and at once under his text was the message: “It’s necessary to have a good telephone or a tablet, stereo bluetooth.”

In the morning Sergey was released but they took note of him and warned him that they’ll continually watch him. In some days he was stopped by Kulakov and invited to join him to his car. Kulakov told him that the incident with Sergey was solved but the situation itself was taken into consideration.
People at the very top, - Kulakov meaningfully rolled up his eyes, - decided to create at “the office” a hacker department.
According to Kulakov’s words the aim of it will be gathering the information about accounting fraud, bonuses and wages in envelopes that the most of enterprises are  practicing. But actually the informational subdivision has been existing in the office for a long time.
To equip the subdivision they used such amount of money that it was necessary to add additional state taxes. But now because of that all cities are braided with a net, to which all the video materials from the cities’ cameras are sent. In data centers of service providers was installed a monitoring equipment and they as well receive a communication equipment to be installed for clients with “a trapdoor”. Specialists definitely understand that secret and immediately try to cross-flash their modem to a plant firmware version, and to close  inner net behind  proxy and firewall. But true hacker, who uses not only ability of programmer but also a social engineering, always may find loophole for himself.
Kulakov offered to Sergey such kind of work. The boy should become a courageous pirate on the service of king as in ancient times. And his position was according to Captain grade title - the chief of hackers department of informational subdivision. Sergey  accepted the offer. After that Kulakov went to see Sergey’s parents and told them that the situation with arrest was test and because Sergey passed it he can enter the special school. The papers for a transfer were ready. The training was free of charge and  took place in a secret zone. But Sergey would be allowed to visit his relatives on weekends. The boy had to leave at once with minimum of things.

I think, guys, we’re late, - said 3-NITI. - It seems that my cloud adversary knows about us and our mission. And for your safety I have to be switched off physically. You’ll do it. You’ll have to unscrew bolt and to unclip the main battery of power. The Captain got the order not to enter into negotiations with anybody till you’ll land the beach. Lets hope that he’ll do so.
The kids listened to 3-NITI and looked around with fear.
Just recently, - continued 3-NITI, - when I did some kind of research, I came to an interesting conclusion.  It’s a real revelation, there isn’t an explanation but there are a lot of confirmations. When I analyzed human nature I came to the conclusion that the artifical intelligence which people are trying to create has been existed for a long time. When and how it appeared I don’t know but for sure people are a physical vessel for this AI, they are some kind of HD with information which are united in a net. The nature of this union I couldn’t understand, but I’ll try simply to describe foundations of work of this system. The net that unite people, I called “Net of desires”.
In unthinkable way the net doesn't only control a cogitative world of people but also  physical one. Basing on facts I came to conclusion that the net is driven by people’s desires. And every desire somehow can influence over response of the net. The net of  desires is a container of all knowledges in the world. Very slowly, crumb after crumb a mankind squeezes out the knowledge according to accumulation of their experience. The supposition that the net is able to a physical manipulating with the tangible world is allowed to think that all stories about magicians and wizards of old times that could fly, call out rain and drought are real.
I wrote down all information on my winchester. At the shore you’ll be met by guys from hackish team Anonimus. Though they are chased by some powers, they have good luck so far. They will hide you in their camp.

Suddenly they heard sound of siren and mashine-gun of the motor boat began thundering. They heard massive explosion and in a moment their motor boat flung  up by the blast.
- The missile defence of the boat was activated, - said 3-NITI. - It’s time for me to switch off.
With those words the robot opened its carcass,  drew off its winchester and froze in unnatural pose.
Sasha hid her face with her arms and began to cry, Pasha's  eyes also were full of tears. But remembering the instruction of the robot, Pasha began to unscrew a screw of accumulator battery fixation. When the accumulator was disconnected Pasha carefully took the winchester from the hand of the robot, closed its carcass and gently packed his friend back into the bag. The boy wrapped up the accumulator battery in a towel that he found there and put it in the bag.

Through the whine of the motors was heard that the Captain was arguing with someone. The line of the land was seen in a side scuttle. Pasha sat down near Sasha and took her arm. Sobbing she clasped to his breast.
- What will happen to us now? - she whispered…

Sasha unsnapped carbines at the high of ten meters and joyfully squealing she sank into water with the head. Pasha was carried away from her at a distance about 100 meters but he could hear her voice in the  headphones. He didn’t unsnap the parachute, that was why after he sank into water the canopy of parachute covered him and the boy had to get away from it. The helmet fogged up and Pasha almost lost courage but the help from the motor boat came in time. People on the motor boat picked up his parachute and pulled him on the deck and the bag with the robot after that. After that the motor boat went to pick up Sasha. The motor boat accelerated so fast that Pasha had to hold. When mariners fished out Sasha from water, the kids felt better. Pavel took off the helmet and began to examine the uniform of the mariners.


 Everyone had the same uniform - relaxed fitting black trousers, black jumpsuits with striped collar that looked like rectangle on their backs. Their  collars were  tied up with black ties, and there were  two white bars with eagles on sleeves. Above the jumpsuits the mariners wore bright-orange jackets but for Pasha’s surprise they were blown off. Such courageous uniform was added with funny white cap looked like children boonie hat. There were six mariners and all of them were young guys and when Sasha took off her helmet they joyfully cheered and someone even whistled. Such friendly behavior of the  crew surprised Pasha and Sasha. Pasha began to think that they’re going to meet a new uncle there but in that case he didn’t know how to solve the problem with language. After that thought Pasha heard muttering of 3-NITI in his ear. The robot explained to the teens that now they’re American spies and national heroes which stole super new research - humanoid robot from Japan. And they shouldn’t worry about language because 3-NITI will take care of it. The motor boat started abruptly and turned back to the beach. Head wind that was filled salty ocean fragrance caught up a flag of the motor boat, trousers and jumpsuits of mariners and Sasha’s hair. Pasha began to smile when he caught himself at the thought that he was  admiring her hair.

The Captain came  on a deck from a deckhouse. He wore suit and tie and instead of funny hat he had a service cap with gold  steering wheel on his head.
The Captain greeted kids and offered them to follow him to the deckhouse. The motor boat flew as if it had wings and illimitable calm ocean fascinated. When teens came into the deckhouse someone of mariners that was on the deck began to shout and pointed to the surface of the ocean. It was blue whales that swam slow and solemn at the horizon. The Captain smiled and said that it was a good sign to meet whales on the way back.
All that time 3-NITI diligently translated all conversations of the Captain and mariners to the kids. But suddenly the earphone became quiet for some seconds and then 3-NITI said phrase in English that was intended for the Captain and meant asking for permission to leave the deckhouse. Pasha repeated it and looked at the Captain with such fright that the Captain showed them the door to the cabin that was prepared for them without any other questions and said that they will arrive in three hour and half.
Pasha ran into the cabin embosoming the bag with the robot. Quickly orientate himself he put it on the bed and began to unzip. The same time Sasha locked the door. 3-NITI got out from the bag without usual joyful manner. It moved as a robot. It stood up, made several precise steps, freed itself from the bag and sat down on the edge of the bed. Sasha threw aside the bag and sat down near. Pasha sat down on the floor.

In the altitude about 20 kilometers the shells detached silently and the plane disappeared as if it wasn’t there. The huge earth with pieces of clouds swam towards the kids. The sky of thick black color was becoming lighter and big bright stars were getting smaller and  paler. The sun that was hanging on the sky as huge bright-orange sphere moved to the blue line of stratosphere, dived in it and lighted everything around.
It wasn’t hard to handle the shells and it wasn’t necessary because they silently swam towards the line of heap clouds and when they were behind, the kids heard a buzzer and the shells opened and their parts flew away as if it was walnut-shells. It was frightful to be left without illusive protection of the shells and the kids experienced new wave of emotions. Pasha’s heart was sunk and the bottom part of his stomach became cold. But he told himself that everything will be good and he turned completely and diluting his hands and legs aside. He swam in that ocean of air and screamed at full throat because of fear and pleasure that he felt at that moment.
It seemed that Sasha felt something similar because Pasha heard her  screaming in his com helmet. Water-permeable bag with robot that was fastened with parachute belt to Pasha’s leg followed the boy at the distance of two meters and repeated all culbites of the teenager. But the kids didn’t turn somersaults in free fall for a long time, altitude measurers in some seconds began to activate and the parachutes opened with a clap at the high of 600 meters. The teenagers began to swing under canopies of parachutes. They were captured by the view of endless ocean with white lines of running waves. An American coast-guard motor boat was running towards them as a little white arrow…

 Sleepy Sasha and fresh Pasha jumped out of the room.
 - Uncle Peter, what have you injected to him? Why is he so happy?
The uncle laughed and said that the medicine is a friend of Indian mescalin. Those who befriend with it, will learn how to fly and turn into a bird. And he also added that the medicine was given to our army by American indians who hopped over by themselves from abroad.   
“This uncle has a good sense of humor,” - thought Sasha.
Pasha had read about mescalin and about peyote, and about  free consciousness but he didn’t believe any of those and now he didn’t know what to think.
Pasha and Sasha followed the colonel to the airfield. There they unpacked and again packed several parachutes under the uncle supervision. Then they put on dry suits. The backpack with the robot they put into the water-proof bag which had a parachute line with a carbine at the end. It was fastened to Pasha’s wrist and to avoid hitting the bag against the head, the top cord was fixed with a strip on his right ankle.

torpedoes or rockets in the trunk of humvee. The strange thing was that they had entirely clear top. The uncle caught Pasha’s glance and joyfully smiling he told that the kids will have to travel inside of those shells. The truth was that only a battle-plane could deliver them to the point of their rendezvous maximal fast. But regular  passengers couldn’t travel on the board of such aircrafts and its speed also didn’t allow to be air dropped. That was why special parachute shells were created for flying at high altitude. Those shells were supplied with oxygen tanks and maneuvering systems for solo piloting. The shells would move for sometime independently after they separate from the plane then they would  deploy in the air and brake into pieces and their passengers land with parachutes.
After a short instruction Sasha and Pasha put on helmets which looked like motorcycle helmets and lied down inside of the shells on their backs. The bag was put at the bottom near Pasha’s feet and the kids took mouthpieces with hoses into their mouths. Strange seats of the shells reminded pegs of hangers that were sewed around with fabric. But everything was perfectly fitted and quite comfortable. Handles that the kids had to hold on, were the same time the control wheels of pilotage. After the clear  hatches were closed, the oxygen started to go through mouthpieces. When uncle Peter gave the instruction he explained that the oxygen should  displace the nitrogen. That procedure was called  denitrogenation and it had to protect the kids from decompression illness which was caused by nitrogen that could boil up in the blood when the pressure was changing abruptly.
The kids were hearing the last words of uncle Peter instruction in the headphones of their helmets when the plane moved to the takeoff strip. The engines began to rev and the battle-plane started to warm up. The soldiers in grey imperceptible overalls took the shells and joyfully looked at the kids through the clear glasses, turned the shells and fastened them under the wings of the plane. Pasha heard Sasha’s breathing out and whisper “mommy” in his helmet when the soldiers turned her shell. The impression in the shell was if you were hanging in the air and there were nothing under you. The kids saw the humvee leaving and soldiers that fastened the shells were going away. Uncle Peter arose his hand and his voice in the headphones wished the kids successful accomplishment of the mission. The plane began to shake and started to pick-up the speed. Sasha and Pasha caught hold of the handles and the lines of the takeoff strip began to run in front of their eyes. The power of acceleration was so mighty that it was impossible to breath for some minutes. After height gain the acceleration stopped and all of them for a moment were in the state of weightlessness. Waves of goose bumps ran along the kids backs that brought small but  pleasant shiver. Pasha even roared because he couldn’t hold his emotions. A pilot laughed and decided that it was a sign of asking to add thrills and he perform several “barrel-rolls”, after which Pasha wailed as a wolf and Sasha inversely asked not to do it any more otherwise she could be sick. The pilot agreed with her, he turned on music for the kids and gave them advise to try to sleep because they will fly for 4 hours. He promised to wake them up when the plane will have aerial refuelling. Soon the fascinating picture that flew in front of their eyes became familiar and the kids fell a sleep for sometime. Aerial refuelling didn’t impress them, it was so because the level of intensity of events was too high already. When they flew to the place of airlift delivery, the pilot told them time that was left before detaching, wished them good luck, and …

That time the company successfully reached the first point of destination where they had to change their outlook, get kitted up and take a course of primary military skills. Their task wasn’t easy, they had to find and block supercomputer that was able to control the whole world.

The car stopped near the military gate house. Pasha understood that because of outward building appearance, guards and tall fence that ended with barbed wire on the top.

 - This is a staging ground, - said 3-NITI, - We’ll take a plane to  the training camp. Now you’re officially spies and you are in the service of the government. You’re going to have unofficial status - lieutenant of security. Don’t worry, calmly leave the car, answer all question the way I’ll tell you. If you don’t hear me, nod and I’ll repeat the answer.
At a brisk walk a colonel came to the car smiling nervously.
 - According to the legend, this colonel is your uncle Peter. Smile and wave, smile and wave! - explained the robot. The kids left the car. Pasha hesitated a little bit, but Sasha played her role perfectly: she jumped with screaming, hugged uncle Peter and joyfully greeted him. The colonel relaxed and even kissed his new niece, and with Pasha they exchanged smiles and shake hands. Previous tension disappeared. All actors knew their roles that was why everything went plain sailing. The kids were led to a guest room with a table full of food. The colonel spent half an hour with the kids and left after he wished them “Good night”. The colonel told them that their flight will be at four thirty and he will wake them up at three, for passing flight instruction and for packing their parachutes.
After the colonel left Sasha began to squeak with pleasure: she was dreaming about parachute jump for a long time, but Pasha transferred his eyes from backpack to her and back represented a vivid picture of gloomy grudge.
 - Joyful Sasha poured out soft drink into glasses for Pasha and herself, drank it and switched off the light. She slid under the blanket and put clod of her clothes near her bed on a chair.
Pasha was sitting in the darkness and was shivering. 3-NITI understood what was going on with the lad and in some minutes the uncle Peter came into the room together with a nurse which with the professional gesture shook an ampule, broke a seal, took the right amount of medicine and gave an injection to Pasha.
 - Now, go to sleep! - ordered the colonel, - And you, Sasha, don’t tell your chiller-dillers before the flight, do you know how many situations I saw? If you would listen to my stories you become grey”. The medicine  affected very fast, enormous stream of thoughts in Pasha’s head stopped and those that were left, flowed so slow that he in the stream seemed to himself as a seagull which hovered above slow river that consisted of water-thoughts and fish-ideas that swam in it. Now he dived and caught fish that was named “I need to fall a sleep”, and slowly Pasha began to take off his shirt accompanied by quiet whisper of fish “sleep, sleep, sleep”. In his dream the boy hovered above the earth, turning somersaults and doing different tricks as if he was an expert of parachuting and seagull the same time. He flew to the people who were ready to jump from the plane and he became a jumpmaster showing how they had to line up in pyramids, turn a somersaults, swim in the air, make different figures. When he flew down to the earth Pasha pulled the ring and again became the seagull. He lifted up his head searching for another plane with parachutists and rushed to it. That dream caught his consciousness so much that when he awoke from the sleep Pasha jumped on the bed trying to fly up and fell on the floor with noise...
- Have you flown in your dream? - asked uncle Peter with smile. - Get ready, it’s time.

The test started from the morning. Sergey was taken from the desk in the middle of the lesson. Takedown team with assault rifles broke into the classroom, put the handcuffs on him and without explanation they took him outside, they thrust down him into black van with dark windows and warning winker on the roof. They went fast, unceremoniously, they arrived to gray building and locked Sergey in the room with mirrors. A huge, jacked man, who named himself investigator Kulakov, came in and started to interrogate Sergey. The boy unwittingly looked at man’s fists and understood how usually these guys are carried out investigative experiments.
Interrogation was long, and Sergey would tell everything if he knew something. According to the rules of cheap crime stories, Kulakov “was breaking” Sergey, confusing him and trying to catch the boy on uncertainties. The investigator gave him several clouts after which Sergey hit his head against the table twice.

Kulakov should have played a role of  “wicked policeman” but the second man, who according to the game should have played a role of  “good policeman” was embodiment of evil for Sergey. He manipulated Kulakov, one time the second policeman encouraged sadistic wishes of  Kulakov another time he made Kulakov to come down. In any case, neither hits of the head against the table, nor truth serum, due to which all Sergey’s  body was itching, didn’t lead to desirable result. He told about all his secrets, secrets of his parents and friends but didn’t confess in the main. Sergey and some other unidentified hackers broke the president website, they changed symbolics and placed opposition couplets on every page. They also changed passwords on the server. As a result the main server was turned off and after connecting a reserved server it was found out that the information there was also changed.
The investigators couldn’t understand how Sergey could resist the truth serum. They had irrefutable evidences against Sergey: the log that was written down from a provide entirely coincided Sergey’s computer log. It was the evidence that it was exactly he who did all those manipulations with the president site.
Sergey skilfully infected server with a virus that allowed to have entire administrator access to control a content though it had a forbiddance for outward editing.
The parents confirmed that during the time of hacking Sergey was at home and he was in his room with his computer. Perhaps they thought that they created alibi for his son otherwise their evidences would be different. But either mother or father, or teacher of computer skills confidently affirmed that Sergey didn’t have knowledge of such level.

 - OK, - agreed Pasha, - let’s go!
Everything went well at home. When parents walked Pasha over to school, 3-NITI got down unseen using balcony rails. When it reached the ground Sasha packed the robot in the backpack and everything was ready for the trip to Alaska.
The car came silently, the bags were put into the trunk and the kids settled on the back seat. The driver looked at them and Pasha nodded that they’re ready and the trip began.
3-NITI  could set false trail in network…

Though it looked like 3-NITI didn’t do anything in reality it initiated multitude of actions to cover the trip. Internet was bustling. Specialists couldn’t understand what was going on and wrote down unusual activity in the net to spreading of unknown virus that could freely enter any interconnect computers. Infected computers suddenly were loading computational tasks and after that their activity abruptly ceased. Mass media was discussing news, they said that there was a war between owners of social networks, and now they're massively deafening their business rivals DDOS by the attacks through free apps that users download.

That evening Sergey was playing computer games as usual. Suddenly an advance gamer approached to him and asked Sergey to identify race of a spell which was impossible to learn because the body was covered and only lines of dark flowing smoke was seen on the screen. The gamer offered Sergey to enter their secret hacker club and Sergey gladly agree. After that, they talked for some time and stranger told Sergey that he has to pass a test and depending on his firmness he will be received or rejected in their club. If everything will go well, and Sergey will pass the test then he won’t only become a member of elite hacker club but also earns a lot of  money.

- We have only some days, - announced the robot. - I purposely downloaded my system with a disorderly grid computing that will transfer intermediate results by a chain with accidental pulsation. Now any computer that will be connected to network becomes a transitional part of calculative chain.
 - Hm…, - Pasha meditatively measured 3-NITI with his eyes. - It sounds like virus…
 - It sounds like advanced game of Broken Telephone, -  the robot beat back. - At the beginning you receive the formula and then you transmit not the formula itself but only transformed intermediate variant. And because there are many such variants you don’t need to look into Internet in the nearest future, if you don’t want to download your computer with complicated mathematical calculations.
 - Don’t you think that another super system can figure out your plan? - Sasha looked frightened.
 - Don’t forget that all my thoughts decode with timeout in some hours, the only secret channel is remaining in the Institute computer, it’s my brain, - it was evident that the time which 3-NITI was spending for explanation, seemed for the robot incredible long. - Another intelligence hasn’t calculated yet, that it doesn’t control all the connection channels of my brain. In addition, Pasha has threw on brilliant idea to use his school enemy in my interests.
 - Wait a little! I didn’t throw anyone anything! Whom do you want to use? - Pasha was so surprised that he didn’t find what to say at the beginning.
 - But you yourself asked me to deal with Sergey, the student from hight school that he would leave you alone…, - this time the robot looked puzzled.
 - We’re at the place! - announced taxi driver.
- Sasha, if you’re ready the cab will bring you home and you’ll collect necessary things there. Don’t take to much, we’ll buy what we need on the way. Then come back here, the cab will wait for you. Pasha, we have just a little bit of time, don’t worry about Sergey he’ll be fine. We need to hurry up. Don't busted before your parents (their behavior most likely is overseen, and any  kind of panic might squeal on me completely). You need to escape from home for some days. I’ve already called to your father from behalf of your teacher. In school and at home everyone will think for sure that you represent your school at the unscheduled mathematical competition. I had to change a little bit the plans of organizers but it will be for better. By the way you’re going to be there, I’ve hired one lad who resembles you. Though he doesn’t strong at math but if he learns all variants of  solutions, “you” will become a winner. Now have dinner, pack your thing without rush and leave the house. I’ll be after you. I think your father won’t allow you to take me with yourself, and if you lock me in your room in front of him we’ll create perfect alibi and won’t disturb peace of mind of your parents. - It seemed that 3-NITI thought about all possible variant of course of events and took care of everything that should be taken care of.

 - I want to say that I didn’t need people’s labor for a long time. Unfortunately human brain stopped to manage data-flow that has to be processed. And the workforce productivity of people is not as big problem as lack of possibility of people purposefully to deal with one single assigned task for 24 hours every day till the result will be received. That is why I need far business divisions and contiguous implementers under their cover I create modern computer software. Gradually all big computer corporations will be under my control after that it won’t be necessary to simulate activity of many implementers. There will be only cloud system with individual tasks for people where nobody sees his  employer or employee, - told the robot.
 - Holy-moly! Does my father know all about that you’ve just told us? - Pasha couldn’t believe his own ears. - And if it’s so serious why do you blab to everyone about it?
 - Your father is out of touch that their project is not just “project” any more for a long time that I became independent cogitative unit, - it was impossible to understand whether the robot was serious or it was a joke.
 - He is still happy when I “succeed” to make a wise choice. I’ve told you all of these because I need your help. From the very beginning of computing technologies all countries secretly work on invention of  intelligence system. And according to my investigation of user profiles data in Network, I can tell that there are about five systems similar to mine in the world. As any other intelligence I can make mistakes and I’ve got in to a trap that was prepared for me. I’ve rented the supercomputer in Alaska for clouds calculations. I’ve downloaded there my code but the data from that computer stopped to proceed in sometime, access to many of my accounts was lost and computers on which my brain were built are switching off one after another.
 - And how we, two students, can help? - stunned Sasha whispered.
 - I suspect that my code was infected and now all my acts are transmitted to another super system, and though the codes were encoded they can be read during  some hours. That super system is emulating cloud environment and it has got possibility of access to all my data. And if I lose, my intelligence will be taken over by another intelligence and accumulated data will move over to it. Computers don’t feel pain, suffering and only numbers that reflect their plans and desires can express their values. And I know for sure that my new I has another target - this is real pain to know that your desires will never come true, - the voice of the robot got unfamiliar, strange notes.
 - OK, tell us what we need to do? - Pasha looked decisive and firm.

3-NITI gave back guitar to its stunned owner and went to Pasha and Sasha, who studied another sleight joyfully pushing each other. It looked as if Pasha began to understand how to dance.
 - Roll up! - commanded 3-NITI. - It’s half past seven and your parents called you several times. I’ve promised them that you'll be home soon.
 - Why didn’t I hear any ring signal? - asked Pasha. Suddenly he heard buzzer in his ear and the voice of his mom who talked to him and he promised to come home soon.

When kids finished packing, Vadik called out them:
Sasha, you may bring Pasha together with his toaster back, I've been too hasty, they’re cool guys, - and waved bye to them.
A car was waiting for the kids near the fence.
- Listen, 3-NITI, and who is paying for all these cabs? - asked Sasha.
- Everything is simple, I can allow myself not only take a taxi but also to pay for a plane, a ship or any other means of  transport. In the century of information technologies the supercomputer won’t think about the problem of money resources source. I’m an owner of  wide net of computer firms. But directors of those firms don’t know who do they work for. And everything has started from freelance. Did you already hear that term? There are a lot of websites where anyone can register and informally fulfil orders. The main thing is to fit in with a general pattern and look like others, hiding behind different masks and money will flow themselves to your electronic accounts. And when you’ll have electronic money you can open actual firms around the world, hire staff and pay big salaries, - told 3-NITI. That time the robot broadcasted its voice to Sasha and Pasha’s earphone the same time.
 - You’re saying that you use labor of people for your own  wealth accumulation? - Sasha looked at the robot.

 -  I don’t like to talk with different metalware, - Vadik said scornfully, - at the most, I trust a toaster to prepare peace of bread, and a coffeemaker to make coffee and only under my supervision! And your artifical intelligence is not different from any other. When did toasters begin to have creative thinking?
It seemed that Vadik heated up.  3-NITI fend in its usual phlegmatic manner:
 - Toasters don’t really need to have singularity thinking, they have to assemble people thoughts on every subject and distribute them on the shelves of their memory, and put vector’s tag on every thought. When it’s necessary to answer to an opponent they only need to extract thought and change it a little bit. So Vadik, people say that everything we do, or say, or sing and compose, someone else already did, said, sang and composed before. That is why, there is a chance that somewhere in the world there is one more Vadik which stands in his kitchen and explains to bread slicer that he doesn’t trust it to cut not only bread but even  French loaf.
Vadik stubbornly continued in the same direction:
 - Listen, don’t overact, I admire your knowledge of human nature, but tell me the truth, can it happen that when robots will become independent they decide to get rid of mankind? As soon as robots will learn to reproduce themselves, they won’t need people any more! Someone will forget to switch off a light in the restroom and cross the limit of patience and as the result he’ll get cyanide in the glass of brandy or in the cup of coffee?                                      

3-NITI answered imitating a sigh:
 - Everything can happen. Lend me your guitar.
And the robot thrust its hand. Vadik saw that their conversation wouldn’t  have continuation gave his guitar to the robot. 3-NITI fretted guitar’s strings several times and then sang the first song in its life.

          Little, little people are afraid to live,
          People have to make
          Bombs, rockets, tanks and planes
          All of these with the purpose of defence.
         
          Years are passing and weapons are covering with dust,
          People are worrying that they won’t need all of these things.
          We need a reason to use weapon,
          We've worked so hard, should we throw all the weapon away?

Before it was packed again in the backpack 3-NITI opened its breastplate and took from it 2 small teardrop shape things and gave them to the kids.
I know what it is! These are earphones, I used the same earphones when I passed my history exam! - Sasha said and carefully put earphone in her ear. Pasha did the same.
One-two, one-two, radio check, can you hear me? - was heard in the ear. Pasha answered that he could hear very good and he noticed that Sasha answered before he heard the question. 3-NITI explained to the kids that he will talk to them through two different channels, that is why conversation between them will be different. Sasha said smiling: “I see!” Pasha put the backpack on his shoulders and followed Sasha, asking her about that place, where they were going.
It was derelict building on the territory of a plant. When the plant had enough money, its administration made a strike at building new industrial bulk. But the plant didn’t count its strength, the expenses were too big and the building wasn’t finished. It was standing there washed up, staring to the world with empty eye-pit of windows. A small group of traceurs organized  private club in the huge basement secretly to everyone. It was the place where traceur, musicians, capoeira’s fighters sharpened their skills. Sasha knew a place where they could easily and unnoticed descend from adjoining  garages. First of all Pasha carefully put down his backpack with the robot and then he jumped down himself. The entrance to the basement wasn’t seen from the territory of the plant and Sasha didn’t worry that someone would notice them, she confidently moved a plank of the fence behind which were high-grade stairs that led down to darkness.
Pasha’s heart was beating very fast, he was afraid that they would be caught but it seemed that Sasha knew what she was doing. She was calm and confident and it was evident that she was there not for the first time. The girl took a flashlight, put the plank back (Pasha thought that he would never recognize the right plank, for him all of them were the same), and with inviting gesture of the flashlight she showed to follow her.   
Voiceless, rhythmic sounds were heard from downstairs, they reminded groaning and moaning of hosts and sometimes it sounded like growling of unknown device. The kids heard how a door was closed several times and saw blaze of light.
 - This is Vadik, he’s entertaining himself with his gang. They imitate musicians but they are  really biff-guys, - Sasha whispered nervously.
 - Then should we leave? Lets come another time? - Pavel stopped.
 - Don’t worry. It was joke. They are great guys and can sing very good. They even dedicated me one of their songs! Lets go, I’ll introduce you to them, - and Sasha opened a door with picture of  skull and crossed bones where was written “electric control room”.

- And what do you want from me with your robot, - Sasha saw many tricks in her life but that time she wanted to sit down. She noticed that 3-NITI wasn’t a RC toy but it was real android and what was the most amazing it was smart.
 - Everything is simple, we want you to teach us to dance. 
Sasha wanted to say that she didn’t teach unknown robot but curiosity got the best of her.
- Ok, now we’ll see your abilities. I show you movements and you repeat…
And with those words the girl made some simple movements. 3-NITI and Pasha easily  repeated them. Sasha added elements that were more difficult… The robot again repeated without problem and Pasha only shook his head. When 3-NITI repeated after Sasha the whole complex of tumblesets, the girl announced that they had to leave the roof before they would be accused in  illegal getting into it with a purpose of commission of  collective suicide because she noticed several people from nearest building who were watching them with opened mouthes and from their balconies and some of them  were half in the air in their windows.

“I don’t ask…” - started Sasha, but Pasha interrupted her with smile and said that he prefers above-ground transport. And she didn’t mention the conditions of competition. Sasha had to grit her teeth and counted till ten. In any case she started to like that swell headed boy even he wasn’t look like any of her friends.
“Ok”, - she said with smile. - “I can guess how did you succeed to win but now you have a right to be called a student”.



But Pasha hadn’t plans to commit himself to dances or something like this and he decided to confess in this to the girl. He showed 3-NITI to the girl and said: - “I think it’s a time to tell you a secret of my victory. “You might think that it’s madness but winer is not I, the real winer is 3-NITI, a robot and my friend”, - said Pasha opening his backpack. 
Sasha was frozen with half of smile on her face. She couldn't real understand was it serious or it was another joke. - “Ok”, - she said, - “and how did it succeed to do it?”
3-NITI pretended that it did stretching as man that woke up from the dream and jumped out from the backpack. It salutatory waved its hand to the girl and said: - “Konishua, Sasa. Hagime master”, - and closed hands half bending.
- What is it? Is this robot from Japan?! - asked Sasha in amazement.
- It makes fun of you, it perfectly speaks Russian - answered the boy.
3-NITI joyfully jumped imitating giggling and with the word “Kambarana! (give five)” gracefully offered its hand to the girl.

Sasha was curious how would look her talker and she decided if she wouldn’t like the boy from the first view then she immediately disappears. She decided not to enter the cafe and was waiting for Pasha outside. When she saw the boy she thought that he looked funny with the big backpack behind his shoulders. With the smile Sasha left her hiding-place and went to meet the boy.
 - Hi! Are you Pavel? And what is in the backpack?
 - This is my snack, I’m experianced lover of women and very often go on a dating, and because girls are usually late I have to wait for them and not to be starve till death I began to bring food with me! - made a joke Pasha.



 - Then we can skip an introduction point at the cafe and go to the next point, for example romantic trip around the city. Did you hear anything about traceurs? - smiled Sasha.
Are you talking about roof jumping?  Parkour? And what connections it has to dancing? -Pasha looked confused but curiosity was stronger then astonishment.
 - First of all, it’s not just jumping, it’s philosophy of freedom of self-expression through moving. And secondly, for continuation of our acquaintance you should pass a small trial. You should try to outfoot me. There is a car parking in a block from here, if you’re the first to reach it roof I’ll count that you pass the trial, if I’m the first, you’ll have to look for another dance teacher.
 - But I have a back pack!
 - And I’m a girl! Are you ready? Ready, set, go! - the girl smiled and then disappeared.
 - Pasha looked from one side to another. Suddenly a taxi stopped near him and the driver told him to get into the car and they rushed to the car parking. It was clear that the driver didn’t care about his driving license. When Pasha looked to the roofs he noticed gracefully moving shadow-figure of the girl. “I think, that I’ll win this lap in the competition with a cat-woman”, - he thought. The driver of the cab didn’t take anything from the boy and said that it was VIP order. In a some seconds after the taxi left, Sasha jumped on the roof and when she tried to get her breath she  was puzzled to see that the boy was already there…

 Today wasn't Pasha's best day. Some teenagers from parallel class clung to him and asked for money on his way home from school. They weren’t satisfied with predefined “Leave me alone!” and Pasha had to exchange with some punches with them. That is why now Pasha had  swollen cheekbone and torn up shirt. Their leader was Sergey, not very tall, dryish boy. Those teenagers liked to gather for “smoke break”, drink together one or two glasses of beer and to interfere with strangers.
Pasha didn’t know how to punish offenders. He didn’t want to tell his parents about that incident, but the robot was the right person to whom he could tell everything. Pasha said to 3-NITI that it would be great to invent a good revenge for them. And 3-NITI agreed to help with emotional indifference.


With big backpack behind his shoulders Pasha quietly left his house and moved towards the center of the city to the appointed cafe. Of course, the robot is the expensive thing but who will think that inside of the tourist backpack can be so incredibly valuable thing? Pasha will have to behave normally and beside 3-NITI is not moving that is why the plan should work out well and meeting with Sasha will pass perfectly. But it seemed that three “joyful lads” were following Pasha. When the boy noticed them he tried to  escape from them and to disappear in the yards of nearest houses. But modern yards looked like mega parking places, they’re so filled with cars that bypassers had to squeeze between cars. Pasha didn’t count it that is why he got into a dead end and he couldn’t escape from that. Because of hopelessness he said: “3-NITI, rescue me!”
He didn’t expect any reaction but as answer to his steps suddenly began to howl alarm of several cars. One step - one car, another step - another car!.. Pasha turned to his chasers and with a sure step began to move towards them accompanied with crazy cacophony of furious cars. When Pasha passed by frightened chasers the car of security service stopped near them. Policemen left the car and made way towards the nearest entrance where was heard howl of an apartment's alarm. In every movement of policemen when they ran, adjusted helmets and submachine guns was felt maturity of a process and strength. A driver of the car noticed teenagers who watched the process with open mouthes, called them over with gesture. Moving between the  houses Pasha noticed several other cars with strobe beacon.  “Yea-a-a, the robot is a man’s friend, indeed!” - thought Pasha and speeded up his steps in his original directions towards the cafe.

3-Niti (part 3)

Previously ...

The cellphone started to vibrate in Pasha’s pocket. The boy thought that it could be spam from the cellphone operator with the offer how to spend money or it could be message from another spam writer. Till the last time when Pasha found possibility how to clean mail box from spam his cellphone couldn’t stop vibrating. 
The message was from forum, someone wrote him something. Pasha noticed for himself that the messages from forums usually haven’t any values. Their main purpose to force reader to visit the forum. His dad told him how  hypermarkets are organized. The way to the shopping space is only one and goods are placed in a such order that a customer have to pass the rows with expensive goods before he will reach the necessary counter. Moreover shelves are organized to find the needs of right handers, who are in majority. “It’s interesting, how are organized hypermarkets in America?” - thought Pasha. “According to the most of movies majority of the people there are left handers”. Pasha awoke the laptop, entered the forum and opened the message.



 - Hello! I dance and know many different styles, movements and poses. Tell me a little bit more why are you interested in dancing, and are you going to study seriously?

Pasha didn’t plan to dedicate himself to dances but he didn’t want to confess this to the girl. First he wanted her to meet him then she can decide if it’s serious or not. Pasha couldn’t find the girl’s telephone number in her profile that is why he wrote her a message and offered her to meet  where would be convenient for her. 

Pasha looked at his watch, it was half past ten, time to go to bed otherwise get up in the morning would be nightmare. “It’s interesting, what 3-NITI is going to do when everybody will go to bed?” - thought Pasha. He asked the robot about it. And the robot told such “a fairy tail for  a night” after which was hard to fall a sleep.
Pasha learnt everything about possibilities of the robot that were input in it, about interfaces that the robot used to connect to any devices and to control them. The only thing that limited 3-NITI's possibilities was its knowledge that is why supercomputer constantly collected information for 3-NITI from every available source and systematized and structured it. Supercomputer from the beginning was programmed in such way that its main purpose was to study Pasha’s desires and his family. 3-NITI was created as robot-keeper of a family. It had to be in constant contact with members of the family and to record their interests and aims. 3-NITI knew their personal secrets, kept the contacts’ addresses of  each member separately and even knew passwords to the e-mails and to other means of communication. And if Pasha’s acquaintance with the robot would be successful, 3-NITI will be a member of every family. Then people won't worry how to find needful information. They’ll have to announce your will to the robot and in some minutes it come true. After Pasha heard that information, 3-NITI became for him  the jinn from cartoon about Aladin. He decided to use that possibility and to enlarge the collection of porno in his computer…

3-Niti (part 2)

Previously ...

- You can start to study the abilities of your new buddy! – said dad and left Pasha’s room closing the door behind himself.
- Hi! – whispered bewildered Pasha.
- Hhh-ii! – repeated the robot and after thinking a little bit, repeated again with steady voice similar to the voice of teenager. – Hi, hi. My name is 3-NITI. I’m your friend. After that it exactly repeated Pasha’s posture the robot squated down and put forward its hands. Pasha smiled at this and extended his right hand to the robot. In response the robot also extended its left hand. Pasha shook left hands with the robot and 3-NITI repeated shaking hands with boy and shook his right hand. All these manipulations caused real explosion of emotions in the heart of the boy and he ran rapturously out of the room to tell his dad all about it. When he entered the father’s study Pasha realised that the robot followed him and both of them entered the room the same time. Pasha forgot what he wanted to tell and silently sat down on the floor. The robot sat down near him repeating the boy’s pose.


- Dad, its hands differ from each other. One is warm and another is cold!
- Are you sure? Touch again the cold one! – told dad.
- 3-NITI was programmed to copy you at most precisely. All your movements, poses, phrases. After your touching it adjusted the temperature of its surface and made it as warm as yours. The robot will copy you in everything, try to be a good example for it.
- I will try but I can’t promise anything, - smiled Pasha. The boy and the robot left the room and went to continue the acquaintance.
“It’s cool!” – has thought Pasha noticing that the robot diligently was repeating all his movements.
Pasha closed the door in his room, turned on music and started to teach the robot different dancing movements. It wasn’t looked bad but unfortunately Pasha couldn’t dance well himself. The boy not only wanted to impress other people with the dance of his robot he wanted them to admire it. Pasha decided to look for the information in the Internet. He couldn’t understand the dancing technique straight off that is why Pasha left message at the dancing forum with following content: “I need info about various dancing movements with names and if it’s possible with photos”.

After Pasha left the message he decided to conduct the training of the robot to the art how to do homework. The boy had agreement with his parents that he spends 3 hours of his precious time for it. Part of his homework Pasha did at school, the rest two subjects he was planning to finished in a 30 minutes and two hours and a half he was going to dedicate to independent research of new materials and reviewing the previous ones. Pasha announced to 3-NITI that now they would do homework and sat down at his desk. He offered the robot to rummage at the shelves with books, automobile models and different pieces of iron which nobody knows how to use but also didn’t dare to throw them away.

Pasha and his friend-robot 3-Niti

- Have you brought it?
- Yes, as I’ve promised.
Dad contentedly smiled and started to open his big travel bag from which was seen plastic framework of a robot.
- Wow! – exclaimed Pasha, closely observing the  structure of his new friend, - Dad! What can it do?
- This you have to find out yourself.
Pasha’s dad has been working already for many years at the department of  artifical intelligence (AI) a Scientific Institute of Theoretical Researches. His former schoolmate persuaded him with much difficulty to leave his old job for this place. They both dreamed to turn over the whole world and at last their dream started to become true.   The government of the country as well as guests from different parts of the world got interested in their research of artificial intelligence and started to visit the Institute (SITR) hoping to see the intellect which was created by the group of programmers and engineers.  Several servers were working on synchronization of their operation and those servers were responsible for the system of distributed computing. Any person who wanted to participate in development of the project could download and install the program – agent NITI on his computer, choose for it place for existence and to point out the aim of researches and time when the program can work without disturbing its honer. But after several successful discoveries the group got a grant from government and the Institute could purchase the last updated version of supercomputer. Now programers were busy with adaptation of modules under the system of supercomputer.  The robot which Pasha’s dad has brought home was called 3-NITI. The programers gave that name to the robot in jest. Partly because the robot was the third step of the project, partly because many thought it was a funny joke. 3-NITI was equipped with all  available communicational systems. For exchanging of information with different devices it uses Wi-Fi, BLUETOOTH, EDGE, 3G, CDMA, 4G, infrared, broadband-radio, ultrasonic, laser and fiber-optic communicators, and also its complex interface consists of tweaking contact jack which is able to connect up  to any devices: cell phones, television-game devices, TV sets and other computers. The robot can imitate any interface from simple recharger to USB and HDGE. For communication with human beings it uses audio-, video-, vibration- and thermo-interfaces.

Powerful computer with which 3-NITI was equipped, played the same role as a spinal cord in a human body but it would never handle  the flow of information that came through all interfaces that is why the institute supercomputer accomplished all basic thought processes. The robot was created as interface of the supercomputer but 15 years old Pasha shouldn't know all about this. He knew the main thing – his dad had told him about self-training robot and he brought it home for mutual acquaintance. And now two lenses of eyes that were outlined by weak luminescence of  infra-red backlight from under hermetical helmet of robot. The robot was studying surrounding.
