🔗 unsimulated

of course people think we’re in a computer simulation. We always conceive of our minds as a dominant technology of our moment.

This historical trend is a new insight for me. How does the availability of a metaphor shape our mind’s relationship with our bodies? Does reaching for virtual private servers instead of managing racks of hardware cause a devaluation in the embodied experience? Are there trends of (un)health that correlate with hardware choices? Does using Docker cause a person to have a more compartmentalized form of attachment?
