Borders relates to the edges, delimitations and demarcations.
The borders establish the limits of what is inside (of a subject or society) and outside
(of a subject or society). The constitutive process of identity is basically the distinction
between the self and the other. Borders are permeable surfaces that bind the inside with
the outside, and the self with other selves; they build up separations that lead to connection
Multiplicity implies the manifold dimensions and perspectives intertwined within
a given Bubble. Identities built up as combinations of biological materials, historical,
societal and cultural (and technological) developments. Identities emerge as unique and “personal”
despite their constructed nature.
Extension refers to modern technological developments
allowing the outsourcing of mental functions. Social networks offer the possibility to be
(to exhibit our self and be seen by others) and interact with others in new ways,
enabling the extension (and existence) of our self into the virtual world.
How well does the virtual extension of the self correspond to our non-virtual self?
How virtual is our non-virtual self?
