Technology’s Role as an Evolutionary Bridge

If we accept language as the basis of our experience, – that is it acts in the linguistic domain that mediates experience at the autopoieitic boundary (autonomy-dependency paradox) – then we may define technology as the mechanism by which that language is constantly being redefined. In this way technology is centrally placed as the mechanism by which human cognition may be expanded and influenced.

To reiterate technology allows a redefinition of the standing-pattern or structural disposition of an “organism” because it acts directly in the linguistic domain of the autopoietic interface.
