Of course the main problem with merged consciousness is the very nature of man to be corrupted by power. If we become connected to the internet (just as a start) there will be those in power seeking to control us and from a very direct route.
Also I would need assurance that machine merging would no way inhibit my ability to reach out and touch the mystic quality and spiritual aspect of existence. In other words I will not be the first mystic to try it. If others report back, "Hey the mystic water is fine here" then I'll consider taking a dip.
Wow, I'm really liking these machines!
They have a very surrealistic design. It's kind of hard to tell what does what or how you'd even get inside of it but you know it's going to cause some major damage.
The Texas bumper sticker(?) is a nice touch! Even though this is clearly fictional, that sticker connects us back to the real world.
The color palette seems very post-apocalyptic if that's what you were going for?
