drive? - so, was descartes right ?
if mind and body are two separated entities, could

my consciousness extends itself to this page -
from my microtubules to this silicon-made stuff
can i upload it ? would that be a liberation? was i
sentenced to interface?
my minded robot (or cyborg?) sent me to hell when
i asked him to bring me a cup of tea - tanxs manuel.
does this robot have the same goal than me?
and now, can we talk about emotions with our
fellow cybernetic compadres ?
should i consider my body as a prosthesis ? can i
get a new one, and one that looks more fun ? with
wires and chips and stuff?
does my body belong to me - or to society?
if it's there - out of my body - it's knowledge, if not,
it doesn't exist.
will we get together in a virtual cortex? (roy ascott)
|no, i don't think dualism will do it.
my mind is my body, from toes to top.
who wants to free the mind from the body?
neo-cartesians ashamed by their flesh, willing to sacrifice everything for an
why should we think that cyberspace will allow our disembodiment?
the sharing of banality, just an egalitarian deception...
my body and my conciousness are interacting with others in cyberspace. so, i

after all, tomorrow morning, my phenomenal body/consciousness, once again

can we regulate multiple subjectivities in
a distant virtual cortex ?
does our diluted self need a coagulant?

No way you can upload your mind/consciousness,

My mind/consciousness is not an object. Basta with
the mind-body dichotomy.
Well, maybe we could try with molecular
nanotechnology. Might work after all, says the other

microtubules (Hameroff + Penrose), can
nanotechnolohy create consciousness ?
