'I don't think numbers have any sense at all outside of some sort of order you impose on them, the problem lies in finding that order.'
'There aren't any numbers here.'
'But there is a chaos, you yourself said so.'
'A few videos out of place, that's all.'
'And the images inside them, attached to each other so as to tell a story, i.e., an order, as well as the successive chaoses they would form if we jumbled them up before putting them together to make different stories, and the successive orders that would come out of that, always leaving behind an ordered chaos, always advancing into a chaos waiting to be put into an order.'
- José Saramago, The Double
