Help! A question…
I realized today while we were looking at our images of a utopian existence between gender and technology that I still don’t fully understand the concept of randomness as it relates to 1) utopia and 2) gender and technology. I thought the point of a cyborg existence was to acknowledge the coexisting artificiality and natural-ness of one’s identity, thus bringing some kind of order and understanding to a previously misunderstood state. Or does randomness have anything to do with cyborgs, or was that just a connection I made up? I was puzzled by this statement in today’s class notes:
body is a product of technology:
desire provides the random element/interference necessary for intelligence
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
