Review of MOTHER-MACHINE by Michel Weatherall
In the age-old debate of whether humanity is meat or soul, machine or spirit, the narrator of this short piece weighs in. His view (I assume gender) is: the human individual is a soul, encapsulated in a machine. When his beloved mother dies, he determines to prove this to himself, to his satisfaction.
MOTHER-MACHINE is a poetically imaged short story of a man with an unusual mission, and the determination to carry that mission to its inevitable conclusion.
