A posthuman is a human who has put nature (including herm own) between parentheses. Or convinced hermself that everything non-human is human and therefore, human = nature. This used to be called “anthropomorphism,” but lately it’s known as a “user-friendly interface.” In current popular discourse, nature has come to mean “nature,” or “the nature channel,” and thus is wilderness removed from it and its destructive and creative force neutralized.”
