Something like a running theme again is the mention of various weapons and firearms. A Mannlicher appears earlier, a Colt and now a Mauser.

  1. This novel is filled with many references to technological devices.
    The Machine and the Figure: mentioned on pages 138-148 are the specter of a future where humans are not in control.
    Weapons are part of that future: with their power, accessability and
    dangers-as well as their protective qualities and fascinations.
