Gunther Anders (and more on him below) felt humans had reached a place where they preferred what was made to the one who made it. The creation over the creator. And that they felt this, or feel this, rather, in relation to themselves. Their sense of inferiority to the machine. Now this feels like the description one might give to Elon Musk or most of the transhumanist thinkers out there today (and a bit more on that below, too).
