"Stress is the inevitable outcome of a system that incorporates every gesture into a global competition for resources. It is a condition that announces the brutal inscription of a system of production pushing the body's endurance to ever new limits. Stress seeps into the body, shaping flesh, dreams, images, desire, policies, products, life forms, value, violence. Stress expands into the world, creating a new, post-natural ecology - an information-based ecology, aimed at the ultimate fusion of capital and nervous system."
