      The New Era of Suspended Time

      #Hybridocene is a short essay that collects the bitter reflections from a series of dialogues, led by Paolo Iabichino during the lockdown and closed with Luciano Floridi, who gives us a handbook for the hybrid age, based on suspended time – a time rife with the contradictions we are all living.

      The last few years have been a middle age that has overcome the fluidity of post-modernism, leading into a contemporary age that is hard to fathom and define. The pandemic has precipitated an urgent and much-needed shift; however, we cannot rely on the now infamous “new normal” to finalise this shift.

      We are at an anthropological crossroads: on the one hand there is a return to the beaten track, and on the other, an unexplored path that very few are willing to tread – the ones striving to break new and mysterious ground on a quest for new and bountiful opportunities.

      #Hybridocene focuses on the themes of technology, which clearly has to come to terms with the criteria of empathy; at the same time, it also encompasses language, a new way of marketing and communicating, and last but not least the attention each of us has to pay to our digital twin, stuck inside a threshold made of atoms and bits.
