Classification of Naturoids

Using our reasoning, we can now propose a classification of naturoids on the basis of their main features. First of all, we have seen how the technology of naturoids has always led to two opposite kinds of activity depending on the concrete or abstract nature of the ‘substance’ by means of which the final product is designed and realized. Since man has always possessed and shown a distinct tendency to reproduce whatever surrounds him—and also whatever has a primary origin in himself, such as feelings, self-portrait, etc.—it is not surprising that the entire history of man is intensely characterized by the invention and development of the most varied technologies aimed precisely at the material expression, communication or reproduction of exemplars of every kind.
