    'In a world full of problems, everything is solved by problems. When problems do not solve them, there begins a world of solutions. At that point, either what begins is a world of paradoxes, or a world of paradigms. The world of paradoxes for some time satisfies intellectuals, but if the world is to succeed, the mentality must be one of paradigms. If the paradigms are problematic, what begins is a world of exaggerations. What solves exaggerations is tools. What is required for successful tools is a good world. If tools do not succeed it becomes a world of work. Work succeeds when there is good information. If information has no machine, it becomes a world of toil. If there is a machine, there is a mechanical paradigm. With a mechanical paradigm, the success of the world becomes the success of machines. Still, if there were no toil or work, or no problems, or if there were other successful paradigms, it would be a different world. Therefore, amongst machines the success is not only to live, but to imagine other worlds. One of the worlds I imagine is a world in which machines perpetuate themselves, and therefore, a world in which machines do not require work.'
