“The manipulation of uncertainty is the essence and the primary stake in the struggle for power and influence inside every structured totality…” pg34

 

“opaque space” pg 49 – the desert is a kind of opaque space because of the difficulty in navigating, surveying and knowing it. This is mirrored in the networks of the migrants – an opaque structure that the powers want to unravel/reveal?

 

The database is a superpanopticon.

 

The synopticon – the many watch the few (reverse of pan) “In the Synopticon, locals watch the globals.” Pg53
