As for the General, it’s only a computer, and a computer is only as good as its programming. Without being programmed with the basic facts, there is no question from advanced mathematics to molecular structure, from philosophy to crop-spraying that the General can answer! At the end the General blows a fuse and short circuit’s itself being unable to answer Number 6’s question WHY? thereby lacking the basic facts. As for the Professor, he either gave birth to it, or who loves it with a passion and probably hates it even more. Either that or he was merely introduced to the General, depending on which story you believe. He still attempted to save it, but in the end couldn’t save himself! Which leaves the question, did the destruction of the General, and the death of the Professor see the end of Spedlearn? Not when one considers that both the computer and the Professor are not irreplaceable!
