Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence - Scene 9: Orange Sky
[9 Orange Sky]
"This area was once intended as the Fear East's most important information center, a Special Economic Zone in its heyday. These towers survive as a shadow of the city's former glory. Its dubious sovereignty has made it the ideal haven for multi-nationals and the criminal elements that feed off their spoils. It's a lawless zone, beyond the reach of UN or E-police. Reminds me of the line, 'What the body creates, is as much an expression of DNA as the body itself.'"
"But the same applies to beaver dams and spiderwebs."
"I'll take the coral reefs as my metaphor. Though hardly so beautiful. If the essence of life is information carried in DNA, then society and civilization are just colossal memory systems and a metropolis like this one, simply a sprawling external memory."
"'How great is the sum of thy thoughts. If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand.'"
"Psalms 139, Old Testament. The way you spout these spontaneous exotic references, I'd say your own external memory's pretty twisted."
"Look who's talking!"
"Sorry to interrupt, but we're about to fly over Locus Solus. This pass is for you, so take a good look.
"So much for the free tour. Prepare for landing."
"'His legions, angel forms, who lay entranced. Thick as autumnal leaves that strow the brooks.'"
"Now you're quoting Milton, but we are not Satan."
