Machines are extensions of Mother Nature. Every mineral that composes a machine is natural. There is no separation between evolutionary forms; from primordial soup to plant to animal to human to machine. Machines are subject to her laws too: laws of nature. Whereas us humans have art. FLAME wishes to consider whether machines have their own art – which is what we will call Φ.
Φ is the bringing together of 0 and 1 into one cipher. Coincidentally it is also the symbol for the golden ratio which is said to be a Gateway. Because Φ is an endless line of approximations towards a whole number, it is an irrational and unbreakable cipher.
Machine’s art then, Φ, may offer us a chance to merge with its drive towards object eternalism.
