Chapter Summary

This chapter is inspired by a series of events that took place in February 2011 around the effort to negotiate a memorial in Berlin on the occasion of the one-hundredth anniversary of the birth of President Ronald Reagan. A thought experiment with images is constructed to consider whether these events - produced by the ubiquity, interconnectivity and reflexivity of global media - are symptomatic of new quantum diplomacy. The first of several quantum effects occurred during the writing of the op-ed. The second event took place during the author's first drift through Berlin. The next quantum event took place at the screening of our documentary, Human Terrain, at the Babylon cinema, a 1920s' picture place originally built in what used to be the Jewish quarter of Berlin. The next in a series of quantum events happened at the intersection of political economy and psychogeography.
