When interviewed while he was researching this book, Kelly, who describes himself as a devout Christian, declared that technology ‘is actually a divine phenomenon that is a reflection of God.’ And the last chapter of What Technology Wants is steeped in this bizarre neo-mystical progressivism. ‘If there is a God,’ Kelly writes, ‘the arc of the technium is aimed right at him.’ For Kelly, our artifacts, too, reflect the divine: ‘We can see more of God in a cellphone than in a tree frog.’ (Were I religious I’d argue the opposite: no human technology can make a new frog from the raw material of flies, something that frogs do regularly.)
