By Ashley D'Arcy
What do dildos, Big Tech, and psychic prediction have in common?
In (Un)Popular Mysticism on the Internet, technology writer/poet Ashley D’Arcy traces the post-internet resurgence of mystical practices such as cartomancy, astrology, and crystal healing.
Alongside an examination of synchronistic events online, D’Arcy offers a way to understand our digital selves through these phenomena and warns of the consequences that arise when technologists start to co-opt this language of mysticism.
This publication is based on notes for a lecture of the same title given at Theorizing the Web on April 28, 2018, in Queens, New York.
