Isolation Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

"There's others. I found one already. Series of transmissions recorded over a period of eight years, in the nineteen-seventies. 'Til there was me, natch, there was nobody to know, nobody to answer."

"From where?"

"Centauri system." (24.35-37)

The Wintermute/Neuromancer hybrid reveals that humanity is not alone in the universe. So, perhaps one day technology will help humanity end its sense of isolation in the universe. Of course, this is only fiction. We all know real aliens prefer to communicate through crop circles.
