caffentzis and federici on becoming mechanical

Posted by rigorousm on March 22, 2016

‘To live with the machine is to become like a machine: a desexualised angel moving in the interstices of the engine, perfectly integrating work-space and life space as in the astronauts pod, infinitely weightless because purified of the force of gravity and of all human desires/temptations, the ancient refusal of work finally negated.’

George Caffentzis and Silvia Federici, ‘Mormons in Space’. (via Anne Boyer’s ‘Questions for Poets’)
