Linked to the Dummy Box

Polyester resin and copper shavings are an essential component of invitro reproduction and subsequent implantation within synthetic wombs. In this enhanced reality the distribution of orgone related materials generates a social group who reject immortalist technology. This sub-culture promotes emergent intelligence using misleading claims and wears the jostling-hat as a symbol of fertility. They think of brains as a massless, omnipresent medium – a boat adrift in a luminifourous aether. Their putative energy forms units that are the foci of creative activity. I reject these passively optimistic perversions – seeing it as a kind of rapture for the future. Existential technology will become commonplace and the post-human economy will survive where psychologically healthy and self-actualizing people can exist in a system linked to the dummy box through an uploaded personality.

About Graphite Bunny

I am a writer working in South Wales (UK). I love pizza, photography and moist clay. When it rains I catch drops in my open mouth. I create poetry, flash, absurdist snapshots and humorous fiction.

  1. OMG — this is Bunny at his most surreal and original. I read this with my morning tea and nearly spilled it (the tea, not the story) all over my bed covers through laughing. Didn’t read it out loud to Mister as he likes a level start to the day and to have taken his heart pills before I subject him to anything startling.
    That’s really well written. You should submit it somewhere.
