Cyberrhiza is an amalgamation of cybernetic mycorhiza, which comes from greek words κυβερνάω (to steer, navigate or govern), and ῥίζα (roots). So cyberrhiza translates as navigating roots. It reflects both their behavioral traits and their ground role in the possible future. Cyberrhiza is what serves as a foundation for the future world, as it constitutes its ever present symbiotic informational network. It unites biological and technological realms, intertwining and reconciling in noospheric integrity. Cyberrhiza is what navigates us in the future, as out of its infinite heterogeneous connections emerges a collective intelligence that keenly guides us. Its intention is not power and growth — but artful creation of potentials for coexistence.
Cyberrhiza is open for connection and communication. But will you be able to accept its messages?
