The Machine and Me

It Beckons

To the pre-thought notifs, you respond without a thought.

To be human is to bond with things in the physical world. Once one thing (your device) stirs with life of its own, your relationship with it evolves. When it chimes and vibrates, and when it doesn’t, your body creates patterns of voluntary and involuntary reactions (i.e., Skinnerian and Pavlonian conditioning). And when you wake, live, and sleep, the device is everpresent.
