The presentation explores the revolutionary nature of digital technology, claiming that the “digital” constitutes a new and fundamentally radical alphabet, a system of meaning that is profoundly different than traditional world alphabets. The difference-that of “virtual incarnation, of thought becoming material-is having a profound ideological effect on different global cultures. The digital alphabet has invented postmodern technologies that, in turn, are responsible for constructing a new “reality” and its culture, that is, cyberspace and cyberspace. This presentation will explore how these two productions are at the center of global ideological battles over what is human and what constitutes legitimate human systems. In particular, I will investigate how the digitalization of capitalism, the ubiquity of information technologies, globalization expansion practices, and research in biocyborgs (the transhuman enterprise) together are at the heart of our modern global battles.
