A quote from Kevin's book: "Encryption always wins" (in chapter E-Money, p209).

Kevin also writes about evolution, communication of the brain with the genes and the possibilities of evolution to accelerate its own progress by having created learning machines (brains). Chapter 20 ("The Butterfly Sleeps") is devoted to Stuart Kauffman (SK). Although at the time of writing "Out of control", SK's "At Home in Universe" was not yet published, he refers to earlier work of SK.
