"Questioning [built] a way. [You] [were] advised, therefore, above all to pay heed to the way, and not to fix [your] attention on isolated sentences and topics. [] Thus [you] [have] never [experienced] [your] relationship to the essence of technology [since] [you] merely [conceived] and [pushed] forward the technological, put up with it, or [evaded] it. Everywhere [you] [remained] unfree and chained to technology, whether [you] passionately [affirmed] or [denied] it. But [you] [were] delivered over to it in the worst possible way when [you] [regarded] it as something neutral" (Heidegger, 1954: 3-4).
