  • Epigraph: When it was proclaimed that the Library contained all books, the first impression was one of extravagant Happiness. All men felt themselves to be the masters of an intact and secret treasure. There was no personal or world problem whose eloquent solution did not exist in some hexagon. - Jorge Luis Borges, 'The Library of Babel'
