What is the connection between computer technology, hippie culture, 20th century mathematics, terrorism, the research of consciousness in the 1950s and paranoia? Between 1978 and 1995 a series of bomb attacks shook the USA. The targets of the letter and pipe bombs are managers of large airlines and scientists from various elite universities. In 1996 the FBI arrests former mathematics professor Ted Kaczynski. Why does a mathematician apparently become a terrorist? The search for an answer leads back to the 1940s to the 1960s, when the horizons in science, art and technology seemed to open up in all directions.
