I haven’t watched the series Mr Robot yet, but in a tutorial, Paul did point me in the direction of this clip. I feel like it summarises, in part, my concerns for this project.
Questions about life, in whatever form, have always been raised throughout human history (I imagine). The questions are no longer met wth philosophical or metaphysical reflection but are now posed to the philosopher of philosophers, the ‘google god’. This ‘google god’ seems to contain an infinite number of answers, some linked, some contradictory – not mattering either way. But it does not seem to understand the task it is being charged with, and as a result can often appear apathetic to the questioner. I am interested in the dialogue that’s opened up in this disconnect between humanity and the internet.
