I imagine my body
as an “octopus-shaped machine” This multi-limbed network connects each part of my body,
and “thinks” as well as “senses” the surrounding
world with total autonomy. This expanded view
on the body can be realized as “fractal flesh”—
part physical and part phantom operating in
spaces of extended scale and abstract information, beyond subjective experience.
