cybernetic organisms, hybrids of humans and machines, have pervadedeveryday life, the military, popular culture, and the academic world .Cyborgs is ongoingbecoming of a doubly ³in
between´ temporality of humans and machines. Materially madefrom components of both sorts of beings, cyborgs gain increasing function through aninterweaving in which each alters the other, from the level of ³neural plasticity´ to softwareupdates to emotional breakthroughs of which both are a part.The first and more traditional sense of the case of organic beings that are physicallyand functionally united with mechanized beings to constitute what some consider ³true´cyborgs. The second sense of ³cyborg´ claims that we have all become cyborgs in the senseof becoming enfolded within a world in which machines not only perform many of our keyactions but also make possible how we know ourselves, express ourselves, modify our intentions, and open new avenues for who we might become."Cyborg" is a science
fictional shorting of "cybernetic organism". The idea is that, inthe near future, we may have more and more artificial body parts
arms, legs, hearts, andeyes
and digital computing and communication supplements. The logical conclusion is thatone might become a brain in a wholly artificial body. And the step after that is to replaceyour meat brain by a computer brain.
