All Pervasive Queerness

The Cyborg Queers the Human body.  By locating so much information, so much experience and knowledge outside the body, the boundaries between Human and Machine, Human and Animal, Male and Female, Inner and Outer become permeable, then fluctuating and then break down.

The continual flow of new data continuously reconfigures the categories of a Cyborg’s identity.

These mutating categories fly into Hertzian space in all directions at the speed of light, infinitely.

Humans try to incorporate the idea of continuity into that of identity – a collection of all the moments of awareness that arise from any particular moment of awareness.  But Cyborg identity, riding through space defined by the electro-magnetic, stops time. The Cyborg is everywhere and nowhere.

Humans experience the Queerness of Queerness, the blurring of boundaries and categories.  Cyborgs experience All Pervasive Queerness, the indeterminateness of information itself.  This is the second mark of Cyborg existence.

  1. we all have estrogen, testosterone. albiet different degrees, thus male and female. but other, third and fourth and ETC categories come up when combining those. thus ANDRYOGYNY the abscense of identified gender and GENDERQUEER the open and identified combination of genders make some of us differently gendered.

    but what does an orgasm feel like? to all of us the same?

    put in stimuli, get out information and put in different stimuli into the once stimuli originally put into.

    put out?

    thank you for bringing me into the world, dad.
