Perhaps computers have become the most successful machine in human history because they are made in our image and we increasingly in theirs. Moreover, if the 'persistence of human consciousness' through algorithmisation, storage devices, connectivity, even sensorization and mechanisation were possible, how might a future society co-exist with 'non-organic humans' who don't breathe, never sleep, feel no pain, and continue to evolve at inconceivable speeds?

For the DNA blueprint of life, the 'design contingency' was arguably to implement "a set of vital functions" in a biological base - culminating in a mind-body configuration to describe its presence scientifically as deoxyribonucleic acid [1953]. In another world or dimension, the same functions might have been implemented in a different material base and with a different outcome.
