When I heard that Pixar had the Catbus in their lobby, I thought about taking a trip to go see it, but alas, I know it won’t really be the Catbus, not the one in my head. Other people, especially Miyazaki fans, like Totoro, but few understand why he comforts me so much. Totoro sparked my interest in the posthuman. You see, Totoro is a monster, as is the Catbus. I really love these monsters, but they are monsters nonetheless. The Catbus is a weird, contorted, hollowed out Cat-body that people can ride inside of.
Instead, it is a vehicle-body that transports us to a crazy world of monsters, cyborgs, and morphing bodies in a state of becoming. This animal-technology-magic-fantasy combination drives our imaginations and helps us to see the world in a new way. Once we understand that we are all already cyborgs and that we are not singular beings, but instead multitudes of beings living under the assumption of being singular, it can be an eerie transformation of our consciousness. Once onboard the Catbus to the realm of the posthuman, the world and our bodies never quite look the same again.
