„The reality is that we are dealing with the legacy of Apartheid. The economy of Apartheid was racially skewed and structured to take care of the minority, not the majority of the country. Everything you look at, be [it] the infrastructure, or energy, or economic [... ], it was all based on wrong and distorted ideology. When commentators comment on this matter of [... ] energy, they forget this and want to put the blame to a democratic government.... before 1994 there was a wrong belief that energy in South Africa was in abundance,... It was a mistaken view. It was because energy was made to serve a few. Immediately after 1994 when we had to grow the economy to the size of the population,... when we had to implement the constitution... and therefore rolled out [... ] electricity to the remotest areas of this country, suddenly we realised we don't have enough energy..., because we're now applying energy not in a false belief, but to [the] reality of the demand of the country.“

„To me, energy is information – I think you can make that bold a statement. The only lines of energy that link up disparate sites in London are lines of information, that have been drawn by an informed mind. The energy that we put forth is information we have taken in.“

—  Alan Moore English writer primarily known for his work in comic books 1953
Context: New-age woolly-hat Glastonbury mystics weary me, sometimes, but they talk about energy, the energy of a place, of a person. We all know what they mean, but at the same time it has to be said that this is not energy that is going to show up on an autometer. We’re not talking about energy in the conventional sense that physics talks about energy. To me, energy is information – I think you can make that bold a statement. The only lines of energy that link up disparate sites in London are lines of information, that have been drawn by an informed mind. The energy that we put forth is information we have taken in. We will see a work of art and it will give us inspiration, it will give us energy. It’s given us information that we can turn to our own use and put out as something else. That’s the kind of energy that we – and psychogeography – are talking about.
