'Technomancy' Chapter

Technomancy

Technomancy originated before formal scientific interpretation of things when humanity could first, by virtue of their own wit, devise a tool for any purpose according to their will.

Technomancers just focus their metaphysical practice/exploration on the technological venue.

Evolving Into Spirit

In one of the earliest stories of a “robot”, a mystic with his insights creates a “golem” to serve his community. But his insights are shallow and the golem, an animated statue of clay, after a while stops taking orders… Seek More

Humanities Cousins

What is the technomancers view of robots? To a techomancer, these creations are humanities cousins. It’s evolutionary children and the mirrors of our own souls. We must be very careful from a technomancers view in exactly how we engineer these… Seek More
