Cyborg way-station

What if cyborg were only a way-station on the road to health? Adding machine to a human body merely adds foreign breakable to an organic body subject to decline, temporary to temporal. What most of us want may in the end not be super powers, rather to taste our possibilities inherent. Maybe we will not become unrecognizable: maybe we will always see the machine as “not us;” we could start to unfold whom we had not yet recognized as ourselves.

Consult grandchild-elders?

Can we consult the grandchild-elders?
Can we meditate/contemplate and pray with the grandchild-elders?
Let us bow a blessing to the grandchild-elders; let us receive theirs.
Can we understand the point of view of the grandchild-elders?
Can we hear with the grandchild-elders?

On their heads?

What is our attitude—our stance—toward the grandchildren-elders? Are we merely dispensing our wisdom on their heads? Or might they be as far ahead of us as we suppose ourselves to be ahead of the peoples of prehistoric times? What if we could partake of their waters and advance ourselves? Might that advance circle back to them, giving them a foothold higher? Could that move us both up the spiral? Can we give them freedom, even beyond freedom from us? Is it about discovering them? Helping us both become us?

Converse across creativity

We might converse with the generations by our creativity, our breaking with common cultural consensus.
