brief bio: fast disappearing

[But perhaps the function of disappearing is a vital one.
Perhaps this is how we react as living beings, as mortals,
to the threat of an immortal universe, the threat of a
definitive reality. So this whole array of technology could
be taken to mean that man has ceased to believe in his own
existence, and has opted for a virtual existence, a destiny
by proxy. Then all our artefacts become the site of the
subject's non-existence. For a subject without an existence
of his own is at least as vital a hypothesis as that of a
subject decked out with such metaphysical responsibility.
Seen from this angle, technology becomes a marvellous
adventure, just as marvellous in this case as it seems
monstrous in the other. It becomes an art of disappearance.
It might be seen as aiming not so much to transform the
world as to create an autonomous world, a fully achieved
world, from which we could at last withdraw. Now, there can
be no perfecting of the natural world, and the human being
in particular is a dangerous imperfection. If the world is
to be perfect, it will first have to be made. And if the
human being wishes to attain this kind of immortality, he
must produce himself as artefact also, expel himself from
himself into an artificial orbit in which he will circle
