The objects (all artificial objects are technology) are holders of attributes they do not have by themselves: they hold our desires. We could use the same knife to slice a piece of fruit or to hurt somebody. An airplane could spread water to extinguish a fire or bomb cities. Everything depends to the “action-er”. But what if those tools are getting more and more intelligence and independence? Who will be holding the knife?
