I assume that you meant a "Talus", not Dr. Talos. First of all, a talus is
not a chem. A chem operates on nuclear power; a talus on fish oil. (EXODUS,
53) Second, taluses were made on the _Whorl_; chems were made on Urth.

See above. Also, Hammerstone mentioned to Silk that chems were being
stockpiled "for maybe twenty years" on Urth before being placed aboard the
_Whorl_. (LAKE, ch. 9)
