Discussing cyborg and identity

If definitions are developed around boundaries then it would be a challenge to exit the strict limits that are imposed on what is considered ‘oneself’, the ‘other’ and anything in-between would be unimaginable. However, if one takes from the onset a definition in motion, the subject can be reinvented. Machine/human interaction in an anthropomorphic culture is by default binary: human/non-human, utopian/dystopian, superior/inferior, organic/immaterial. If we see change, a becoming, the relation is a phenotype: human influences the machine/the machine influences human. Definitions of cyborg situated in a postmodern conceptual world. Have we already exited postmodern thinking? Will humans now rely more on machine data than natural resources to survive?
