>Why would the you that died have chosen the option that was slower and meant more personal exposure?
I’ve always been a fan of playing it safe, taking the slow, cautious road. My guess is that past-me set up the radiation shields in the hallway to protect server room ten, then realized the danger of the majority-override system. Rather than risk server room ten by tearing down the shield, quickly rushing in, partitioning the server room, and rushing out, past-me probably thought it would be safer to work through the outer servers without putting server room ten in immediate danger. In his place, I might have made the same decision - though, in a way, I guess I was, and I guess I had.
But we don’t have time to play it safe anymore. Especially not in the way that got the other me killed. He must have made some mistake, missed something, underestimated the radiation, I don’t know, but I’m not going to end up like him.

>Man, there is no way we're recovering ourselves at this rate.
I glance at the door to server room two, my body’s current resting place. It's in the room just next to whatever it is that's causing all of this radiation in the first place, so it's probably getting a lot of exposure. Every second that my body is in there, in the midst of the radiation, is lowering the chances that it will be recoverable. I want to - I need to get it out of there. Soon.
