Good point Anders. I was wondering about this very issue months ago. I
would hope that the number of emails would slow down a bit too if there
weren't so many tangents being explored here..

There are so many intelligent people on this list who are fascinated by
what others on the list think about a wide variety of topics and it
becomes very easy to slip away into socio/political issues which might not
directly relate to posthumanism.

Sorry if I contaminated the stream. (-;

I am working on a posthuman project right now. Its a conceptual animation
in a kind of music video format. I'm still interested in getting my mind
around a body of work which documented the constituent parts of the human
body broken down into a list. I'd love to know if ANYONE out there knows
what I'm talking about and might give me a lead.

When I'm done with the video I'll put some stills on a web site for your

Thanks for listening to me babble on once again...
