part of the techno-fantasy (since 19th century)
1- techno-monster ——> tragic consciousness [self-realizing itself ~= 2nd-birthing to something ‘more’ and ‘other’]; everything is code to be cracked; techne =/= episteme ——> (Ihde: ) *instrumental transparency* (= denial dependency)
2- Frankensteinian ——> technology is that no one is or can stay behind the wheel
3- Ghost in the Shell ——> fantasy of leaving the body behind + desire for perfect knowledge

techne =/= episteme”: technology or tool is thought apart from (has an alterity relation) its context of involvement & referentiality
