Love the monkey, love the virus

Love the monkey, love the virus.

So much of our technology allows us to "live with" our consequences despite ourselves--Living with AIDS, Living with a Jarvis II, Living with Dialysis, Living with Gene Therapy, Living with Hormone Injections, Living with Special Prosthetics, Living with Voices in your Head, Living with Herpes, Living with Mom, and last but not least, Living with Monkeygeist. We are what we've become. We are tautologically and ontologically an expression of the existence of ourselves, begging the question (does it?), How are you going to live with others?
