Our scientists now use fractal theory to “teach” the molecules to

assume, or resume, a particular form. Substances of amazing
strength become simple once the formulae are properly computed.

—Colonel Corazon Santiago,
“The Council of War”

Driven by the requirements of Doctrine: Initiative and the mathematical models behind Probability Mechanics, Nanometallurgy techniques allow engineers to manipulate metals at the molecular level.
