The Ritornelli of Everyday LifeSome Epistemic Experiments with Information Technologyby Shintaro Miyazakiwww.shintaro-miyzaki.com
„[W]hile modern scientists are tracking singularities using computers, theweapon artisan of old had to track them “by ear,” so to speak, following the“traits of expressions” (physical properties) with which these points endowmatter, and tapping their morphogenetic capabilities in the process of pro-ducing a given weapon (DeLanda 2003 (1991), 19).“

„[A]t all times we will have to play it by ear, since there is no way to pre-dict in advance where those roads will lead, or what kind of danger they willpresent us with (DeLanda 2003 (1991), 230, 31).“
