QUOTABLE

"It is too late to ask: can we, should we, will we? The super intelligent machine, able to think like a human, but vastly more knowledgeable than any or all of us, is coming--whether you're ready or not."
(Your Obsolete Brain)

When automobiles first appeared on carriage ways as competition for horse driven buggies, the noisy, smoke-spouting nuisances were viewed as vulgar and intrusive. When telephones came into vogue in the nineteenth century, people actually dressed up for phone calls, as if being improperly dressed while talking to another person, even when unseen, was somehow disgraceful. Today, there are more mobile phones than people in the world. It's not unthinkable, though perhaps still vulgar, to encounter people talking on their phones in restrooms, or to converse by voice or text with a caller who is actually sitting on a toilet.

(Your Obsolete Brain)

"We gag, we plead, we crawl

(Across the Blood Red Plain)

"i wanted to be six or sixteen
but only so i could know what i knew then
and not what i know
that i don't know
now"
(Across the Blood Red Plain)

"Go ahead, God, have your little joke."
(Stalking the Bird of Paradise)

"Ah, that explains it," Warrigal said. "And now they think you bought yourself a slave. Or rather, they bought me for you, and gave me to you as a gift."
          "Hm," she hummed, pretending to consider the idea. "And I was hoping for a watch."
(Stalking the Bird of Paradise)
