Quantum reality, the reality of electronic computers, works by resonance. It is hard to overstate how deeply our lives are shot through with computation. Computers are not a tool we use; it is closer to the truth to say that computers are every tool we use: our watches, cars, credit cards, libraries, phones. Insofar as the computer is our tool, we are electronically animate - but what does it mean to be an avatar, cyborg, or animation? Questions of identity, location, change, and closure become acute.
