The rapid pace of technological miniaturisation is leading to increasing amounts of technology being embedded in the human body. The human body itself is becoming an interface adapted to the speed of data networks. And this, in turn, leads to the direct networking of bodies with one another. This work refers to the ancient Greek myth of Laocoön. If we look back at the cultural history of the human body – which was always a cultural vision – we see that practically everything now in the realm of the technologically feasible has already been imagined in ancient Greek mythology. In a scenario of creatures in the throes of transformation, "laokoon" expresses the inevitability of technological self-creation in the future of human history. The moment of transformation becomes a key metaphor for the technological transformation of the human body in its future post-human and possibly even immortal existence.
