Réparation vs augmentation/amélioration by Marc Roux

La distinction entre réparation et augmentation/amélioration n’est valable que par rapport à une norme humaine, subjective, fixée de manière essentiellement arbitraire. Ce n’est pas une loi objective comme la vitesse de la lumière ou la gravité.

Short story: The Sum of All Secrets by Marcelo Rinesi
