(Story) - The Self (7) - ‘..the book that I have opened..’

You’re the book that I have opened
And now I’ve got to know much more

- Unfinished Sympathy

Technology. A deep mind. It dawned to me during the walks that the Artificial Intelligences were changed by Ada and I should consider the Orb being intelligent now. These intelligences were always present. Always at my service, monitoring me, noticing me.

I made, while sitting on a bench, two small hand-signs, barely noticeable together with a thought, just in case, and there they were, teleported besides me, the Book and the Orb.

‘New York.’

Teleported to the only place in the City where there was no video camera checking this spot of the street. Within a blink of an eye, the Book and Orb disappeared.

I leisurely strolled towards a bench where I could watch the Statue of Liberty from afar.

‘Tech, cunning of hand.’

( To be continued… )

‘Take my thoughts with you,
And when you look behind,
You will surely see a
Face that you recognize.’

‘..A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame Is the imprisoned lightning..’

‘Technology is so advanced it seems almost invisible..’
