He knows full well that is plan will leave Jean in shambles. He also knows his bosses at Ecosystems Unlimited will come after once they realize what happened. He doesn't care. He thinks once he's got that money, he'll be rich enough to fight or avoid any attempts to bring him to justice. He ''dosen't'' seem to grasp that any account big enough to hold all that money, or multiple accounts suddenly flush with cash will be red flagged and seized the moment the news about Jean spreads.

Things still work out for Florence though, because Ecosystems unlimited realizes the upcoming demand for non-robot, non-human entities and starts producing altered bowman's wolves for this purpose.

Spoiler alert: this is all about the comic's big, big reveal. Based on the strips from [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff2500/fc02467.gif Feb. 28]] and [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff2500/fc02468.gif March 3]]: [[spoiler:the uplifted chimps aren't "psychopaths" in the human sense; that was more of an analogy or loose language than a literal diagnosis. They're just a defective first generation product, prone to uncontrollable fits of violence. Mr. Bowman has difficulty not physically attacking anybody who disagrees with him, even in cases where his rational judgment goes against it. He may have improved with age, for example learning to defuse his violent urges by attacking inert targets in his tantrum room, but the precautions he takes when meeting Florence in person are still pretty strong. There is a minor question of whether the so-called "Dr. Bowman's neural design" has this name because Dr. Bowman invented it (as the comic has implied up to now), or because Dr. Bowman *has* it, but so far I suspect it's the former; Dr. Bowman's neural architecture is an improvement that Dr. Bowman himself made on the earlier design that they used to make him. Part of the reason he was able to improve it because he has first-person experience with its flaws. Dr. Bowman is the property of Ecosystems Unlimited. They keep him alive because he's a genius and a source of a large number of their technology and ideas. They keep him under extreme security because they would be liable for all the damage he's likely to cause if he went loose. They keep his status as an uplifted chimp secret (as best as they can) because it would discredit them enormously if people at large were to know that they're making money off things that were invented by what the population might see as a *slave*. Dr. Bowman arranged for his wolves to be sold to human families for two reasons: (a) he just wants them to have freedom he doesn't have (and maybe knows he can't have), (b) the early socialization may be required to avoid them turning out like him. He's been brought to planet Jean because Ecosystems Unlimited want to exploit him and his knowledge to cope with the robot situation, but they very much don't trust him!]]

Here's the sad truth this would reveal, however: There is probably no other Bowman's Wolf on Jean. If there were, a single robot meeting them would provide a counterpoint to Helix's original datum point, and would probably end the DOGGY!s. Since this hasn't happened, it means Florence really is alone among her species on Jean.

[[WMG: Sam and Florence will become official mediators between the Robots and Humans on
Jean.]]
They have proven themselves useful thus far and are the only non-human non-robot entities(Except for Dr.Bowman.)
Things still work out for Florence though, because Ecosystems unlimited realizes the upcoming demand for non-robot, non-human entities and starts producing altered bowman's wolves for this purpose.

[[WMG:Why the 'doggy' reaction, and what this means planetwide...]]
So, every robot ever yells 'Doggy!' upon seeing Florence. Why? Let's suggest this: Robots are programmed to be, in general, agreeable and helpful. As such, they attempt to greet individuals appropriately. When confronting an individual, they first scan their own experiences for relevant precedent and react in manner according to the individual in front of them. If no such experiences exist, they search the extranet and ask other robots. If that fails, they resort to their own personality idiosyncrasies.

So, putting this into practice...

1. Helix is the first robot to meet a Bowman's wolf. He has never met one before, so test one produces a negative result. Test two likewise fails since no robot has ever met a Bowman's Wolf before either. He resorts to the third approach, and because he's Helix, "DOGGY!" Happily for Helix, Florence, an unusually tolerant sort, deals well with this.
2. Every other robot since has a truncated reaction. Upon their first time meeting Florence, they fail to find personal experiences, and then ask extranet. This produces Helix's original experience which seemed to work well for him. Ergo, "DOGGY!"
3. Upon subsequent meetings, however, they have a wider body of evidence they've gathered themselves, and thus they no longer need to greet "DOGGY!" each and every time.

Here's the sad truth this would reveal, however: There is probably no other Bowman's Wolf on Jean. If there were, a single robot meeting them would provide a counterpoint to Helix's original datum point, and would probably end the DOGGY!s. Since this hasn't happened, it means Florence really is alone among her species on Jean.
