Beaver Vortex, or General Mechanics 101

Imagine the world from the perspective of a machine.
From a machine’s perspective
organism is alien,
nature is abhorrent,
existence is incomprehensible,
divinity is a fiction,
interpenetration is impossible,
infinity is a number,
value is an equation,
principle is a hypothetical,
humanity is a tool.

Hmm… come to think of it…
I suppose we see from the mechanical perspective as our default,
our a priori as it were.
Perhaps we should try seeing the world from the perspective of a human?

It’s a topsy turvy world.
