Este artículo propone una interpretación del fenómeno de la latencia desde un contexto ético que ayude a comprender mejor la “crisis ante la espera”. Para ello, se analiza cómo se desarrolla el fenómeno de la latencia en la tecnología desde dos vertientes vinculadas que promueven una apreciación negativa de ella: la económica y la neurocientífica.

En este libro se parte de la obra The Multiversity de Grant Morrison para trazar las superposiciones entre los dos territorios. Una idea que en cómic ya se viene trazando desde el año 1961 con la p...
