J.G. Ballard

"Crowd Theory: Claustrophobia masquerading as agoraphobia or conceivably Malthusianism.

Suburbs: Do suburbs represent the city's convalescent zone or a genuine step forward into a new psychological realm, at once more passive , but of far greater imaginative potential like that of a sleeper before the onset of REM sleep? Unlike the unruly city counterpart, the suburban body has been wholly domesticated and one can say that the suburbs constitute a huge petting zoo, with the residents' bodies providing the stock of furry animals.

Satellites: Ganglion's in search of an interplanetary brain."

J.G. Ballard, Project for a Glossary of the Twentieth Century.
