- v. Third-person singular simple present indicative form of brainwipe.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
There are debates about the morality of brainwipes and the legal status of AIs, there's a megacorporation selling the possibility of postmortem immortality on the web, there's an emergent Gaia religious movement, and there's a lot of other stuff, but at the center of the book are a deeply disturbed child and those two women, one of whom is his teacher and the other his adoptive mother.
Some of the actors must have been brainwipes, since they were actually killed.
