Speaking of micro/macro… Ben Vershbow at if:book gets dreamy in his description of a Buddhist monastery in Korea that houses “the largest, most complete set of Buddhist scriptures in existence”:

The whole monastery a kind of computer, the monks running routines to and from the database. The mountains, Orion, the drum all part of the program. It seemed almost more hi-tech than cutting edge Seoul.

Sometimes we are all just cogs, and that’s okay too.
