Description

In his One Half A Manifesto, John Lanier forwards six propositions, ultimately outlining a concept of cybernetic totalism. Perhaps most provocatively, Lanier claims that "people are no more than cybernetic patterns," producing a vision of the world in which humans are subject to computer processes at a biological level.
