„Manuel stared at the place where Piet had been. The man he had known so little would now lie in this place far beyond the moon of Islam and the cross of Rome and the hammer of Marx, in a territory open and without plan, beyond man and his encasing theories, his filters, beyond the closed rooms of the civilized mind.“

—  Gregory Benford, Against Infinity (1983), Part 6 “Aleph Null”, Chapter 3 (p. 221)

The large gold letters of the sky“
