What if cyberspace itself is by definition a mode of separation & a manifestation of "machine logic"?
What if the disembodiment inherent in any appearance within cyberspace amounts to an alienation from precisely that sphere of everyday life which extropianism hopes to transform & purge of its miseries? If this were so, the results might very well resemble the dystopian situations envisioned by Philip K. Dick & William Gibson; — turned inward, this violent sense of contradiction would evoke the kind of futility & melancholia these writers depict. Directed outward, the violence would conjure up other science fiction models such as those of Heinlein or Herbert, which equate "freedom" with the culture of a technological elite.
