The mechanical hearts are fatal, and Bryant will shut off the city lights to prove it.
The Intella-heart will cure all illnesses and extend life significantly. Jessica believes this to be a remarkable gift to humanity. But with population control being a growing concern, why would Intellecta create this heart to make someone live longer? Bryant knows, and it takes shutting off the city lights to show Jessica the truth. That is, if she lives to tell the world about it.|
