You Are (Already) Cyborg

Description

Think you have to wait for the Borg or orthopedic surgeons to become a cyborg? I’ve got news for you, my friend: you are already a cyborg. Even worse, you aren’t really even “you” at all. That self you walk around in pretending to be you is little more than a necessary byproduct of cyborg machines. You are packed in a black valise riding around on the cyborg baggage carousel, while real parts of your body and your mind are plugged in to other circuits. Following us along the maps of the known cyborg territories as we take apart that little “you” you call yourself, and along the way, put a very different “you” together again.
