the future/archivization

«(…)possibility of this machine, which, in the world, has at least begun to resemble memory, and increasingly resembles it more closely (…) What is at issue here is nothing less than the future, if there is such a thing (…) As techno-science, science, in its very movement can only consist in a transformation of the techniques of archivization, of printing, of inscription, of reproduction, of formalization, of ciphering, and of translating marks.»
