„The future is too interesting and dangerous to be entrusted to any predictable, reliable agency.“

—  Lewis Thomas, buch The Lives of a Cell: Notes of a Biology Watcher

"Computers"<!-- , p. 113 -->
The Lives of a Cell: Notes of a Biology Watcher (1974)
Kontext: The future is too interesting and dangerous to be entrusted to any predictable, reliable agency. We need all the fallibility we can get. Most of all, we need to preserve the absolute unpredictability and total improbability of our connected minds. That way we can keep open all the options, as we have in the past.
