Living Cells Can Now Be Used to Build a Computer
In the course of the past year, my mind's been blown so many times by breakthroughs in biotechnolgy that I wasn't even surprised when I read about a bunch of MIT researchers building a computer out of living cells. After all, scientists can now store data on a single molecule or, if that's not small enough, a single strand of artificial DNA. Some are also working on invisible microchips made of carbon nanotubes, and doctors are already talking about using nanotechnology for everything from monitoring organ functioning to zapping cancer cells.
Lisa Necks (M.A. in Media Studies, working toward. a Ph.D. in Modern Intellectual History and Literature) wrote an interesting article which covers transhumanism, in a manner of speaking, based on a consideration of the infamous golem (“The Golem: between the technological and the divine,” Journal of Social and Evolutionary Systems, Volume 21, Issue 3, 1998, Pages 281-303).
