Hello, Everyone:

As you know by now, we didn't make funding. In the last day, we made it a little over 1/3 of the way. Thank you for your interest, your support, and your time.

All the best,

We crested $400, this past week. $418, to be exact. To that end, here's first access to an older presentation on magic, alchemy, western esotericism, and pop media: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwT-l2KJb7hmNWI4WUJXekVQaE0/edit?usp=sharing

It'll  be up for general viewing, soon, but you all get firsts access.

With $1082 and 6 days to go, the project could still use a great deal of word of mouth, so if any of you has friends or readers who would be interested, now would be a great time to let them know.

Talk to you all soon!

Hello everyone. I want to take this time to thank you, again, for all of your support. Things have been progressing reasonably well, in terms of planning and research, and I wanted to take this time to show you some things that might give you a bit more of a sense of my thinking and writing style.

To that end, if you go to my homepage, here https://sites.google.com/site/damienwilliamscv, you’ll see a couple of links for “The Metaphysical Cyborg,” which is the talk I gave at Laval Virtual, last year. It was a good talk, a lot of fun, and you might find the text of the paper interesting. Clicking those links will get you to a page where you can read it, but unfortunately, said links will ONLY work if accessed from the above link.

Next, here's my paper, "Becoming Our Selves: Jungian Self-Actualisation in Joss Whedon's Dollhouse."


An older piece on "Why [the film] Limitless is About Cyborgs and Magic."

And, finally, on Tumblr, everything related to the project can be found here: http://wolvensnothere.tumblr.com/tagged/Techne%3A-The-State-of-the-Art

Again, thank you all so very much for your help, thus far. But I need a little bit more of your help.

You were interested enough in this project to spend hard-earned money on it, and that support means so very much to me, but with just 22 days to go, now is the time to make a big push toward spreading the word about this work.

On Twitter, I've been using the hashtag #TechneTheStateOfTheArt, and you'll find many interesting and shareable links at the Tumblr link above.


Any mention you feel comfortable giving, on any social media platform, will go a long way.

I thank you all, for everything, and I look forward to keeping you apprised of my progress.
