Digital Dualism, circa 1846

"We who are born into the world's artificial system can never adequately know how little in our present state and circumstances is natural, and how much is merely the interpolation of the perverted mind and heart of man. Art has become a second and stronger nature." 

               Nathaniel Hawthorne

From Mosses from an Old Manse, quoted by David E. Nye, America as Second Creation: Technology and Narratives of New Beginnings
