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.
