9783659465192: The Making of Virtual Existence: Posthumanist Trial of Transformation

This book gives a cultural reading of what we know as ‘cyber-existence’ that celebrates plural identity and enhanced ability.To know the effects and impects of VE, the book is must read book. As People today are very prone to use virtual means to form virtual identities that replicate their ‘self,’ both mind and the body. This VE can be viewed as a trail of finding and re-making our ‘self’ in the virtual space while its physical phenomena including avatar may affect the material bodily and natural traits. It is, therefore, of great importance to study its role in our culture and in changing humanistic traits. Cyberworld has generated a virtual world of mechanical community where disembodied and extended bodies reside. The disembodiment process which is related to the virtual environment has created a new body: the mechanical body. The mechanical body incorporates and regularly updates the features of virtual realm and creates a world wide ‘online existence.’ More crucially, the virtual existence is discursive as it relies more on text than on material function. Therefore, a new body-mind interface has emerged with a number of impact. The book gives an explanatory look to it.
