No livro Staying with the Trouble, Donna J. Haraway fala dos Ctônicos, "seres da terra [...]" “repletos de tentáculos, antenas, dígitos [...]" "eles são quem nós somos", conclui. Suponho que as Ctônicas poderiam assumir alguma forma. 

 

Em outras palavras, temos a capacidade de transmutação entre caracterizações do imaginário para mudar essa alienação social? 

 

Ou através dessas narrativas, podemos aceitar que talvez sejamos os arquétipos delas, não o contrário.

In the book Staying with the Trouble, Haraway speaks about the Chthonic ones, "beings of the earth[…]" “ replete with tentacles, feelers, digits [...]" "they are who we are", she concludes. Could I assume the Chthonic ones could take any form? In other words, do we have the ability to transmutation between characterisations of the imaginary to change this social alienation? Or through these narratives, we can accept that maybe we are the archetypes of them, not the contrary. 

 

At the end of the day, it is easier to deal with one shape, one perception of an intelligent being? As well as it is easier to focus on only one way of being human.
