Posthuman Life reading group (Summer 2015) by Phil Percs

Posthuman Life reading group (Summer 2015) of David Roden’s new book.

All beings so far have created something beyond themselves; and do you want to be the ebb of this great flood and even go back to the beasts rather than overcome man? What is the ape to man?

Man is a rope, tied between beast and overman–a rope over an abyss…

  1. OoOooooh LOL, so you’re Alien Ecologies! New name, I didn’t recognize it or have any idea why I was subscribed to it in my newsfeed hehe. I had to come here and investigate this conundrum. And it’s YOU! Well, slap my knee and call me Sally – what a pleasant and extraterrestrial type of surprise. 🙂
