Enter a number from 104 to 300 to choose your destiny with teletext!
In ancient times the development of events beyond a person’s control was determined by a supernatural power.
Mythological characters like the Norns rule our destiny, but today we change the fate of gods for a fate in computers. We substitute beliefs for rationality.
Computers can analyze true consequences of human nature and tell us what to do, but this is a machine fantasy, a dream of the machine.
