"The defendant contends that the evidence was insufficient to establish that he possessed the blue ball (and the other items it contained) found in the closet of Wiener's apartment.
"To begin with, the open door to the defendant's apartment immediately downstairs from Wiener's, coupled with evidence of a forced entry into Wiener's apartment, and the defendant's efforts to quiet Wiener's screams (by holding his finger to his lips and whispering 'shhh') suggest an urgent and spontaneous series of actions by the defendant to flee from his apartment (and to hide in Wiener's) when the task force entered the apartment building.

Wiener's conception of cybernetics was, more than anything, a philosophical and research program.
