portals to this new world have been wedged open, and the silhouette of a
figure is slowly taking shape. But what does it feel like to be
four-dimensional? How do digital technologies influence the rhythms of
our thoughts, the style and tilt of our consciousness? What new
sensitivities and sensibilities are emerging with our exposure to the
delights, sorrows, and anxieties of a networked world? And how do we

Scott?hailed as a “New Generation Thinker” by the Arts and Humanities
Research Council and the BBC?shows how this four-dimensional life is
dramatically changing us by redefining our social lives and extending
the limits of our presence in the world. Blending tech philosophy with
insights on everything from Seinfeld to the fall of Gaddafi, Scott
stands with a rising generation of social critics hoping to understand
our new reality. His virtuosic debut is a revelatory and original
exploration of life in the digital age. Download and start listening now!
