I love machines. I tore open my first PCs to move stuff around and make inventions with superpowers. I actually was just breaking them. It is paramount we consider ourselves cyborgs and understand how our relationships with silicon and AI are going to inevitably shape culture, society, interactions and fundamental behaviors. I also strongly connect with this planet and nature. I was once a zoology major and “my favorite activity” is hiking. We are not simply inhabiting Earth. We are earth parts. The blending of these layers fascinates my consciousness and motivates my curiosity perhaps more than any other forces.
