The next most supressive act may be to process a person from his view point and the viewpoints of other _terminals.
You see, in this fashion life is compressed into dots (regardless the size)... one is individuated into boundaries described by the viewpoints... and in most cases, lets face it, those dots are mighty small.
Even when one claims to have his little dot expanded to all the universes as some do, please notice the results to date. almost uniform insanity, crimninality etc. We have some good examples lately. The Slatkin mess, and the cult and sadly, its founder in many aspects.
This notion that a being is a _terminal... sticks one there.
