The grotesque body, as we have often stressed, is a body in the act of becoming. It is never finished, never completed; it is continually built, created, and builds and creates another body. More-over, the body swallows the world and is itself swallowed by the world.
- Bakhtin, M. (1984) Rabelais and His World
The question of extension asks again: Are we human? Yet the question is, and always has been, what do we mean by “we”? The super- human is the horror of our inescapable potential, of the error to which we are fundamentally prone. But it is also an acknowledgement that whatever the human has been is not all that it can become in the days and decades ahead. Hearts on fire, brains on ice, we race against the inevitable. Until then.
