*Governmentalities of the Digital: Mapping, Sensing and Hacking*
*by David Chandler*

In this presentation I explore three ways of rethinking the human through
the digital. The first is reactive; here, the use of ubiquitous data is
seen to enable new methods of mapping/tracing relations in time and space.
In this paradigm, problems are seen more clearly through an ontology of
depth, ‘drilling down’ to context where processes/path dependencies come to
light which can be intervened in. The second is responsive, the paradigm of
sensing and datafication: seeing relations in real-time, to enable
increasingly automated processes of governing emergence. Here, the Internet
of Things and cyborg more-than-human assemblages are imagined to govern
with rather than over or against potential problems or threats of climate
change, disease or socio-economic crises. The goal is that of resilience:
the maintenance of the status-quo or homeostatic governance. The third form
of adaptation is autopoietic, less goal-directed and therefore more
future-orientated, for example, hacking as a project of exploration of the
possibilities of relations and processes, detaching and repurposing
assemblages creating new possibilities. In all three, the ‘what-is-ness’ of
the world is given its due; there are no assumptions of linear, abstract or
universal frames of knowledge or governmental capacity. They could also be
seen as stages through which ‘the digital’, in enabling adaptive
possibilities, has facilitated the building of a home in a posthuman world.

the number first seems to be the Science/Physis approach. Science/Physis
using the digital
elements to explore what is not (yet) digitalized. [the justification can
be the empowerment of the (not yet digitalized) inhabitants of this digital
home based in the posthuman world]
then the next phase (number second)  happens when everything
has become Assumptions and thus this shall happen in Future Real-Time
{(David Chandler notices how (Future) Real-Time is resilient, that is,
if you remember about the rhizomes  which the (an)droid's understanding
explores in our current Science/Physis; -he phrases this:
'the due"what-is-ness"of the world'-...  })
the last (third) phase in this abstract, is after being forced to confront
phase one and phase two noticed in its character,  Science/Physis has
finally accepted to relate with a-phasic sensuality to this two-phasic
of it's own abc procedurality ,or (non)digital instinct.
