"One of Heraclitus’ best lines turns on a pun. In the archaic dialect of Greek that Homer used the word for an archer’s bow is bios (βιός). The Greek word for ‘life’ is spelled the same way (βίος). Heraclitus’ line runs:

βιός τῷ τόξῳ ὄνομα βίος ἔργον δὲ θάνατος

The name of the bow is life but its work is death.

This is the first and the last word on technology."
