    As the human practice becomes more technological, various cultural, economic and social interactions become dependent on what technologies afford us to do. There is an obvious possibility for this relationship to spread over large parts of the human experience. This can become a constantly present vail of interpretation between the individual and its perception of the world. As these technologies become more ubiquitous, human perception and ability to act will become dependent on technological, produced affordances. This eventually leads to a novel form of the negotiations for how the world should be seen and acted upon. Possessing the technologies that have affordances for such interactions will become critical in building up and maintaining the position of power. In its extreme, this struggle applies over the right to control the affordances for perception of reality and the very ability to act upon it in any meaningful way.
