One thing kind of puzzles me. Spose, in the future, I get connected to someplace overseas over a lambda circuit (ie, a certain color of light). Shortly thereafter, someone else, right next to me in geography, wants also to be connected to the same overseas connection. Since we come from the same spot and go to the same spot, we get the same color lambda, so he gets shifted to a (close-by?) color (Dr. Cao says this can be done).
One slight problem: how do we know where his color lambda goes? Or how many spares do we have for each combination? How many combinations are there?
What am I missing here?
