I was sitting under a tree today contemplating the nature of biology and it as being the source of power relations when I realized I had left out a critical component in the relationship between biology and power. What value does humanity place on biology that allows biology to be the catalyst that power structures use to get to us? I know the wording is a little confusing and I haven’t come up with a better way to phrase it, so I’ll try giving examples:
1. Do humans place an investment on their existence?
2. Do we place an investment in our families continued health? Existence?
3. Is it something else?
4. Is it a combination of those things?
And of course, the question (that I will engage MUCH thoroughly later) most important is: What does our state of existence look like with a society indifferent to these catalysts of power?
