“We are all on that train, the one that left print behind, the one where we are constantly in real time, where we know a little about everything and nothing about anything, really. And there is no quiet car.”
The train is a metaphor for life. It never stops moving. It’s all about the now space and time, just like the Internet.
If you get off the train, you’ll simply be left behind. Even if you hop back on, you will have skipped too many cars to catch up. But you may have given yourself a new life.
