Part 2, you ask? There isn’t a part 2. The Lamport fan fiction ends at part 1, I’m sorry.
The good news is that there’s something more concrete than allegory to follow up on. The work is still in progress, but the description over at the Machi source repository at GitHub is place to look. That link is fixed at a version as of mid-March 2015. If you’d like to see the latest version instead, give it a try.
