Six Impossible Things

A Blog About Fiction and Reading


“‘Your obsession with networks takes a bit of getting used to. Still, it’s understandable.’

“‘How do you mean?’

“‘Because networks are everywhere. The road and rail systems, the postal services, the Internet, your friendships, family, electricity, water — everything on this planet is composed of networks.’

“‘But why “understandable”?’

“‘Because is is the way you are built — your bodies use networks to pass information; your veins and arteries are networks to nourish your bodies. Your mind is a complicated network of nerve impulses. It’s little wonder that networks dominate the planet — you have modeled your existence after the construction of your own minds.'”
