People are not beaten.

In the face of countless trillions of scissors falling on them from space, they retreat but they do not surrender. They hide in shelters and at night they creep out and they build metal domes. They make space lasers and other defenses. They learn to intercept the scissors’ communications among themselves and to send back signals that confuse them.

In the body of the great scissors-swarm, the Earth becomes a virus — a toxin — a cruel issuer of defeat.
