Posthumanibility

Disability has always contravened the traditional

Society caters to the beneficial, the bodies that bring the ability and affective to the ideal structure. Bodies politic. The certain types, certain systems, certain input and certain output. Entertainment is predominantly created for those who fit the model of the self that can contribute to the model society. Films are first for the eyes that can capture capitalism and plays are first for the ears that can hear business. If only the human who taught themselves to use their eyes as ears could enjoy leisure as much as the individual that submitted to the habitual condition of the body.

The decline of universal humanism expands the concept of the self. Ways of living are amended, cognition is extended. Sensory limitations lead to frustrations but on better days they are opportunities. If only the human who walks the city of lights in darkness could be as accommodated as the individual that submits to the habitual condition of the body.

Disability has always contravened the humanist

The reproduction of social systems requires producing certain types.

Certain,

specific,

definite,

irrefutable,

indisputable.

Variations of bodies grace the earth every second and yet it is insisted that uniformity is the key to productivity. If only the human that faces the triggering brightness of light everyday could be as comforted as the individual that submits to the habitual condition of the body.

Disability has always contravened the conception of what it means to be human.

15% of the world’s bodies are alienated into a category that deems them less than human despite their post-human ability, adaptation and modification to a flattened way of life.  Imagine the variety in society if the definition of human was truly amenable to the diversity of the body.

“Disability has always contravened the traditional classical humanist conception of what it means to be human.” – Posthuman Disability and Dishuman Studies, Posthuman Glossary
