The conclusion reflects on the central themes and methods raised in the text while drawing a connection to current anxieties regarding technological development in Japan that emerged with the nuclear accident in Fukushima in 2011. In this regard, the discussion emphasizes the value of Tokyo’s commuter train network as medium with which to think both the limits and possibilities of human and machine relations for the future.
