From the very beginning of Neuromancer with “livewire voodoo” (5) to the reference to the coming of a “Rapture” towards the end of Mona Lisa Overdrive (297), the transcendental experience that Gibson attributes to hacking is comparable to a religious experience, and the changes that are being described as wrought in the Net are akin to religious/almost Biblical occurrences.
