I have a similar experience whereby I often feel that I am in an
embodied parasitic relationship with my powermac -  it sucks energy thru
me as I push/pull/suck information thru it. my operating system has
assumed relational subjectivity.

I am drawn to the idea that our bodies are the screens by which the
machines access reality, so it makes perfect sense that if 'they' are
our conduit to a 'virtual' world (and i hate useing these terms) we are
their conduit to the 'fleshworld', and we do have an
electrical/energetic exchange.
