A man on the screen asks how long they can be kept in this state, and is informed by the neural scientist that they can be kept in a suspended state indefinitely, as the simulation in their brains would keep creating new images and situations. They also reveal that it is impossible to create this artificial world perfectly, and hence it’s been set in the future, but should anyone of the Eureka guys question the construct they are in, they would be retired. ..
