Responding to readings into the ancestrality element of Speculative Realism and its implications for a deep future and the

“The image of the parachutist, hurtling out of control towards the earth, also tracks the velocity of the Anthropocene, its
vectors, the speeding up of all things induced by technological capitalism. “
Rob Coley on Tom McCarthy’s novel Satin Island - Vector portraits, or, photography for the Anthropocene, 2015
