Even popular entertainment is becoming aware of the entwining between machine and man. Movies such as Ghost in the Shell celebrate this union and see it as giving rise to new possibilities in the expansion of human development. Other more cautious sources such as the Star Trek series have given us the machine self in the guise of the Borg, not as a liberator of human limitations but as a yoke which sentient […]
