The Narrative

  • Joseph R. Carvalko Jr.


We are self-referenced by and reflections of technology at the same time. Few of us would survive but weeks, if the world’s industrial infrastructure stopped working in any significant way. On the other hand we are the designers of this technology, and as such act as an element in a closed system, where we shape technology and it shapes us. Within this shaped construct, the forces of solidarity keep us connected, shoring us up, as we seek out the values and norms that a culture symbolizes.
