It is our human duty, even purpose, to recognize and refuse adherence to a standard of humanness that is contrary to our be-ing, individually, and collectively
The be-ing, as it grows, realizes and embodies the genius of its self, its humanness, and in so doing opens up more horizons for realizing even more of its self.
There is no humanhood to speak of since it can be simulated. The technologists know; they orchestrate the simulacrums.
Humans are not machines; it is not by their utility that their humanness must be qualified but by the simple fact of their be-ing.
Machinespeak is a case of “a metaphor gone mad!” “From the proposition that humans are in some respects like a machine, we move to the proposition that humans are little else but machines and, finally, that human beings are machines. And then, inevitably to the proposition that machines are human beings. What is most significant about this line of thinking is the dangerous reductionism it represents.”
Levels of a human problem: technical, sociotechnical and socio / philosophical. This break down demarcates the extent to which we can employ machines in our striving for human and social completeness, and underlines the fact that we cannot delegate the human purpose – the striving for growth and fulfillment, love, happiness, self expression, wholeness/integration, play (work) and freedom – to machines.

Relational digital artifacts; pseudo-beings (AI, robots, avatars and personas), from a point of view that values the richness of human relationships, they don’t make sense at all.
