I would have preferred that anyone forwarding my post or  
interpretation of views would have asked me first. Apparently Hayles  
misunderstands my original post on this list or was not given it in a  
way that corresponds with my reason for creating the thread.

I did not say or assume that Hayles things humans are disembodied. I  
said that she thinks transhumanists support disembodiment.

Anyway, now that this has been done, let me respond to this list and I  
will email her and explain.

"Dear Jeff Davis, Anders, Natasha and others, I am not sure where folks
got the idea that I think humans are disembodied."

I never said this and I do not think this.

I wrote that she thinks transhumanists support disembodiment because  
of her interpretation of Moravec.  As this thread has shown,  
disembodiement is the accurate interpretion of the transhumanist view.  
This is why I authored the thread.
