Diary of a Bad Year

“The recent successes of human reason in its long contest with virus thinking should not delude us, for it has held the upper hand a mere instant in evolutionary time. What if the tide turns; and what if the lesson contained in that turn of the tide is that human reason has met its match?”

– J.M. Coetzee from Diary of a Bad Year, 2007
