Famous quotes containing the word omniscience:
“The matrix is God?
In a manner of speaking, although it would be more accurate ... to say that the matrix has a God, since this beings omniscience and omnipotence are assumed to be limited to the matrix.
If it has limits, it isnt omnipotent.
Exactly.... Cyberspace exists, insofar as it can be said to exist, by virtue of human agency.”
—William Gibson (b. 1948)
