We fear not the wrath of a vengeful god, but still there is cause for concern: will our machines fail? will disorder reign? The millennium dies, like every year dies, only with a thousand times the harvest. So cut down the stalks, set fire to the stubble, and plow the ashes under; let the field lie fallow while the numbers change; then it will nourish a new crop, of things we have never seen before.
