“...It contained seven objects. The slender fluted bone, surely formed for flight, surely from the wing of some large bird. Three archaic circuitboards, faced with mazes of gold. A smooth white sphere of baked clay. An age-blackened fragment of lace. A fingerlength segment of what she assumed was bone from a human wrist, grayish white, inset smoothly with the silicon shaft of a small instrument that must once have ridden flush with the surface of the skin - but the thing’s face was seared and blackened.”
William Gibson, “Count Zero”, 1986

Collapse Volume VIII: Casino Real
Robin Mackay (Ed.)
Philosophical Research and Development.
The wager is situated on the dividing line between pure lived action and autonomous speculation: at once an impetus toward the future, recognition of a radical novelty, risk; and, on the other hand, an attempt at domination through the imposition of order, the establishment of symmetries. Its essence, the unification of these two constitutive themes, is far from being clear.
