Week 2. Technology and Technics
welcome again! so, let's highlight some important points about technicity
the article that i am talking about at the beginning of the video: "The ontological force of technicity: Reading Cassirer and Simondon diffractively"
key points
technicity creates an interface between humans and the world, technologies and the world
technicity is an aspect of technology that is beyond its human definition
Technologies can exist independently, they develop us in a way we develop them
technologies have their own evolutionary momentum, one leads to another

and The main point from these four is that technicity creates an interface between humans and the world, technologies and the world. We live and imagine the world in this interface. This shapes our awareness of the world, our "ecological awareness"

remember the relation from "princess mononoke" chapter? so, Technology is kind of a relational enactment and technicity is being within it


We aren't only human, we're also technology. Technology is not only a human tool, it has its own nature: technologies are connecting, containing and communicating. Relational enactments of technology change, figure and create that which is related. The relation is not just between subjects, it shapes what is related. For example, fire has transformed humans as a species while technological relation with fire enabled people to transform the whole world
