Carse, J. P. (1995).  Breakfast at the Victory : The Mysticism of Ordinary Experience.
"When you need a teacher, the Hindus say, a teacher will appear. But we can't know in advance what we need to learn, else we would not need to learn it. Therefore, we won't know who our teachers are until we have been taught. As a result, every teaching is a surprise." (p. 40)
Carse, J. P. (1987).  Finite and Infinite Games : A Vision of Life as Play and Possibility.
"'Machine' is used here as inclusive of technology and not as an example of it—as a way of drawing attention to the mechanical rationality of technology. We might be surprised by the technological devices that spring from the imagination of gifted inventors and engineers, but there is nothing surprising in the technology itself. The physicist's bomb is as thoroughly mechanical as the Neanderthal's lever—each the exercise of calculable cause-and-effect sequences." (p. 80)
