Digen -- 'It was a bubble of rustic isolation perfect for Noadron, that vitally necessary Sime discipline that relieves the tension of constant transfer denial demanded by life among the non-donor Gens, and that's what I was here for.'
(Source: Index card file. Operation High Time -- http://www.simegen.com/sgfandom/rimonslibrary/oht.html) Vital sime discipline that relieves the tension of transfer denial suffered by simes living among non-Donor --- and thus, high field Gens.
The Ranch, isolated and without selyn-powered devices was perfect for it.
Mairis spends 10 or 11 days in Noadron -- relaxing motionless for hours at a time. Some sort of reverie, in which one wouldn't feek a non-Donor Gen approach.
