What we need is not a conception of being composed of objects, but rather of machines. Nor is it a pan-psychism, organicism, or vitalism that we need, but rather a pan-mechanism. To be is to be a machine. Rocks are machines, stars are machines, trees are machines, people are machines, corporations are machines, revolutionary groups are machines, tardigrades are machines And if a generalized machinism is so necessary, then this is because it brings precision to what we’re doing when we analyze substances, entities, and how things interact. Pan-mechanism is not simply the claim that being is composed entirely of machines, but that all interactions are machinic interactions. We do not yet know, of course, what this means. Clearly there is an entire zoology of machines that must be intensively investigated.
