'The always present experiencing of all calculably possible futures (let us call this the state of management) is a very different imagi- native framework from the orthographic imag- ination, whose mediatechnics demanded that it use a record of past experiences to contem- plate the future (this was the state of history). If orthographic media established a perceptible delay between lived life and its representation-in the labor time required to both produce (write, draw) and consume (read) the historical record- electronic media appear to have eliminated that temporal separation by rooting themselves in the instantaneity of the image. This apparent elimi- nation lies at the heart of the logic of real time, which by its very name suggests its equivalence with the time of lived experience.' - page 34
