In the new book by Robin Wall Kimmerer, “Braiding Sweetgrass”, argues that in the natural word we need to revise our idea of what it is to be living and dead. That everything in the universe has its own unique life force which we would be aware of if we opened our minds and our scientific definitions to a larger more inclusive idea of what it is to be alive and conscious. It got me wondering if some day we will see electronic memory to be a true consciousness indeed. As outrageous as it may seem a corporation has the same legal rights as a person, so why not a lap top or phone with the same rights as a person?
It may happen sooner than you think.
