Welcome to the era of Re-Animism, a renewed time of allies and tricksters, angels and imps. In most indigenous cosmologies, everything in the world has a life of its own, while the modern West has seen the world as a dead machine, a program to hack. But the very success of this mechanistic worldview is staging the emergence of a new animism. Technology itself is growing more enchanted, as we face a brave new world of robots, animated bots, immersive virtual realities, and Artificial Intelligences. At the same time, environment crisis is driving a re-enchantment of the earth, and a recognition that all manner of living creatures deserve a voice of their own. Everywhere, people are encountering the strange and marvelous agency of things, creatures, plants, machines, minds. How do we live with all these Others? For more.
