Homo Stellaris and the Uncommon Commons: Who Should be the Subject of the Post-Planetary Future?

Abstract

Is there a subject of the post-planetary future? Will there be a post-planetary future? Is this not merely a question for science fiction, even a science fictional question? Such questions and doubts are justified, and the following undoubtedly has much in common with what Donna Haraway (2016, p. 10) has called "speculative fabulation:" it is a myth of two "string figures," two conceptual personae, two different ways of being a player in an anticipated post-planetary world, two ways of thinking about how science fact, speculative fabulation, science fantasy, and so forth might come together as humankind-or more properly-posthumankind-becomes post-planetary, spreading out beyond the Earth and into the solar system. That said, and herein lies the rub, the question that concerns us it to a certain sense not speculative at all, nor is it one that needs to await its time, to be confronted only after we have concerned ourselves with the crisis of the present, call it what you will-the Anthropocene, the Capitolocene, or the Plantationocene. This is quite simply because all of these-cenes, all of these ways of organizing technosocial nature/cultures in the present are already post-planetary.
