I, of course, shift the meaning of Marshall McLuhan's famous claim, in his book, Understanding Media, that humanity has become the sex organs of the machine world. I shift the meaning, because McLuhan, in simply refering to the whole human race, misses an essential point, i.e. that the process does have human origin and is for the benefit of certain humans - it's not some inevitable evolution of a machine species.
No, its about a small sociopathic ruling oligarchy and the instrumental attitude they take to the whole of nature. All of nature is subjected to their sick ego propping. Machinary has a serious drawback, as Marx pointed out, i.e. it cannot generate profit by itself. It needs the input of human labour. But, humans can be troublesome. They can make demands, and even try to put their own welfare before the profitability of machinary. Some of them even imagine that they are breeding children for purposes other than adding profitibility to the machinary of the capitalists.
And so, the ruling elite must make humanity forget its humanity, and reduce everything to information - and not even information based on ten fingers, but information to the base two - computer speak. Our brains are now spoken of as if it were a mere machine running on digital information (ignoring, of course, the ridiculousness of this proposition), sexual reproduction is being machine-ised all the time, and experiments with cloning have worked to deny the very sacredness of human life - by combining our genes with the genes of mice. A mice race to run the machines - a capitalist wet dream if there ever was one.
Is it not time to put a stop to the horror?
