DTML discovers geospeculative histories of the digital, through the octagonal 'mirror staging' of an intelligent robots genealogy. It locates the ongoing troubled relationships between obsolete human societies within an archeo-computational axis that has failed to produce justice, health or equality in the inflated and precarious 21st century's breakdown.

"With a view to developments in robotics and artificial intelligence, the Committee on Legal Affairs deemed it time for the European Union to take action in respect of the legal and ethical issues raised by these new technologies".[1]
