The city does not consist of this, but of relationships between the measurements of its space and the events of its past.

Oft cited source of inspiration for Jonathan Blow's Braid.

This isn't a book so much as an existentialist thought experiment. I found myself skipping the city chapters and reading only the Polo / Khan interludes.

I find myself wanting to quote several passages only to find that the idea at hand took at least a page to develop and cannot be adequately be captured in one or two sentences. (!)

Memory is redundant: it replaces signs so that the city can begin to exist.
