Virtuality Incarnate: Part 2

  1. In Virtuality Incarnate: Part 2, Xiuying takes the lead in helping the emerging Sphidian people, called Sphidi, integrate socially and politically with the organic humans of the real world.
    1. In Episode 1, the Sphidi face discrimination from organic humans who have difficulty distinguishing them from the automata, and Xiuying takes point on addressing those issues.
    2. In Episode 2, Xiuying helps to found an independent polity for the Sphidi and to win recognition for it by human polities, but also to not discriminate against humans in return.
    3. In Episode 3, Xiuying campaigns for the Sphidi to control their own hardware upon which their lives depend, instead of entrusting it to humans who still mistrust them.
