We are all cyborgs!

And that’s a good thing, thinks Andy Clark, a philosopher and cognitive scientist. He considers that our mind extends into the world and is regularly entangled with a whole range of devices. That’s why we are all cyborgs, in the most natural way. An insightful article by Larissa MacFarquhar in The New Yorker.

In his last books, Culianu launched first ideas of his theory of morphodynamics (I named his theory Culianu’s Model). Culianu thought that our mental space [something we really don’t know what is and where to be found, but he had hope (and that was before 1991) that cognitive sciences (for sure together with philosophy, as Larissa MacFarquhar said: Cognitive science addresses philosophical questions—What is a mind? What is the mind’s relationship to the body? How do we perceive and make sense of the outside world?—but through empirical research rather than through reasoning alone) will find out, and nowadays it seems they’re getting closer and closer] had amazing properties, and the most remarkable one is that it is not limited to three dimensions, as is the surrounding physical universe.

I think there is a possible convergence point of his theory and Culianu’s. We must do some research on this… So, Clark said that our minds extend out into the world, Culianu said that everything that happened in History first occurred in the human mind. Correct.

Our mind is everything, and everything is our mind.
