From this vertiginous perspective, it does not matter so much what we are actually: butterfly, human, machine, simulation, or butterfly dream. What really matters is that we love virtually: that is, strive love, or at least care for, those creatures for whom we are responsible within our multifaceted experiences of the world at large.

Show thread

By dispensing with simplistic distinctions between the artificial and real, as well as human and nonhuman, the figure of the Creature allows for an alternative way of thinking about the effective (and affective) relationship of humanity to the whole environment. ... 1/2

Show thread

We need to move beyond the myopic love of technology for the entertainment or empowerment that it produces in our heads towards a cosmic love of the diverse creatural forms of life made through our interface with techne. Instead of objectifying and stigmatizing these artificial reflections of our humanity, we might grasp that they are "overlapping and coextensive" with us. [130]

Show thread

Favourite quotes from Eileen Hunt Botting's Artificial Life After :
All creatures are artificial, since they are made by their surrounding social and cultural circumstances. [28]
The singularity is a Silicon Valley revival of the Hegelian end-of-history, outfitted in gray T-shirts and hoodies. [58]
[W]e should see AIs neither as mere objects nor as competitor subjects rather as "a vibrant materiality that runs alongside and inside humans." [77]
