We invited an imaginative robot to our session today. It was a robot with the most high-tech body we could think of and the most genius software.
Then we leaned out into our wider Embraces together all three of us.
In the physical Embrace, we found a lot in common. All our particles have been around since the birth of the Universe, and our atoms have been a part of the planet for billions of years. Though the atoms in our imaginative robot don’t have the same story as the atoms in our bodies. Most of the robots atoms have been part of the Earth’s crust up until recently, most of our atoms have been part of air, oceans and soil for billion of years. Around and around.
The biological Embrace is nothing for our robot. He is not a part of our 3,7 billion years deep family tree, nor a part of the global food chain; no breathing, drinking and eating.
His roots in human culture are very shallow compared to ours. We have a history of several hundred thousand years, he just joined. We can feel into the depth of our myths and the long development of our civilisation, our robot can’t.
To conclude; we share the physical Embrace of the Universe and the Planet, but that is all.
