(3) "There's a game out there, and the stakes are high. And the guy who runs it figures the averages all day long" (Trumbo, 1938).

Who plays with a magic cube as if it were the universe? Who plays with Atomic power, Synthetic Biology, Artificial Intelligence, and Nanotechnology? The objects shown are splendid, but the figures are corrupt. If it's hubris, the world is out of whack and angels will fall with nothing more to say.
* Moebius, Crystabelle, Hertzwinkel, Black Widow
