Cartesian Dualism: I think, therefore I am.
What is it to be embodied?
- Plasticity → both biological limb + artificial tool
- Extend beyond boundary
- Retract behind the epidermal one
- Externalising → what is in our mind, in our brain
In what ways are you extended beyond your skin?
- Social media → expend our boundary
- We are as hybrids of machine and organism
Hayles: “Human being is first of all embodied being.”
