Hi everyone,

I glanced uncomfortably at the floor. "Ashton is the only weak link in Fuller's system. No analog mentality can stand up against the knowledge that he's merely a complex of electrical charges in a simulated reality."
"I don't like it either. But Fuller was right. We've got to have a dependable observer down there. So many things could start going wrong without our finding out about it for days."Chuck said.


Question:This is an excerpt from Simulacron-3. Does the sentence in red mean "If we have a dependable observer down there, it won't cost us many days to find out that many things go wrong"?

Thanks for your attention!
