"[...]it cannot be denied that the university is a place or refuge, and it cannot be accepted that the university is a place of enlightenment. In the face of these conditions one can only sneak into the university and steal what one can. To abuse its hospitality, to spite its mission, to join its refugee colony, its gipsy encampment, to be in but not of (emphasis added) – this is the path of the subversive intellectual in the modern university.” [2013, 26]

Emergent Strategy by adrienne maree brown
“I love the scene at the end of The Matrix where Neo sees everything in green-on-black code.
