Being Human

From this thought-provoking article by Jessica Martin (via Alan Jacobs):

in our world dominated by online representation, we feel our physical expressions to be ephemeral, powerless, invisible. If we are not on the internet, we think we are not really present at all.

And – however our merciful God might redeem our terrible choices – there’s something very, very wrong about that.

(Emphasis mine)

I've been chewing on what feels like a bunch of related ideas around the central theme of Being Human. This quote is one of them, and it feels relevant today as I'm thinking about a computer program micking human beings well enough to freak a bunch of people out.
