… Don't you know that when you play
at this level there's no ordinary venue?

— Lyrics from Chess

Why don't you come with me little girl
On a magic carpet ride?

— Steppenwolf lyrics in Star Trek: First Contact

I like to fold my magic carpet, after use,
in such a way as to superimpose
one part of the pattern upon another.

Vladimir Nabokov in Speak, Memory

“Don’t you know that
when you play at this level
there’s no ordinary venue.”
