  Afterwards, Amuro gripes that the fin funnels are over-tuned; the
implication is that they picked up his pain and panic and reacted in a
way that they figured was appropriate. The psycommu system works by
receiving brainwaves and translating them into computer instructions, so
it could be a combination of newtype reflexes and computer initiative,
with the computer taking extensive liberties with the incoherent input it
was getting from Amuro...
