I think the connection to the notebooks of leonardo da vinci is a really interesting one to be made,
and one that works for my books as well. While Leonardo isn’t writing about himself explicitely in these texts,
the nature of notebooks is one that inherently offers us some insight into the aouthor themself.
It offers us insight not only into the thought processes of the author but can also tell us about their mental state and at times even their social struggles.
Notebooks however scientific, will always be influenced by the emotions and the state of mid of the person behind the pen.
In my book WDella transportatione dell’obelisco Vaticano e delle fabriche di Sisto V” this aspect is presented even more blatantly than here.
“Hays, Architecture Theory since 1968” presents a question: “which changes can be called ‘progression’ and what would be better described as ‘regression’?”
It is a question which is probably should be stated more often than it is, while at the same time it is often abused for ulterior motives of reactionary movements.
Posthumanism is a philosophy taking a superpostition on the topic by simply stating: “Does it matter?”
Therefore the connection to “Avatar Bodies: A Tantra for Posthumanism” is, while not an obious one, definitely relevant.
