There’s a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can’t take part, you can’t even passively take part, and you’ve got to put your bodies on the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you’ve got to make it stop! And you’ve got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you’re free, the machine will be prevented from working at all! – Mario Savio
I’ve got a machinehead, better than the rest – Bush
A cyborg (cybernetic organism) is defined as a person whose physiological functioning is aided by or dependent upon a mechanical or electronic device. Imagine being able to enhance your memory by installing a hard drive in your brain, like Keanu in Johnny Mnemonic (trailer). What if you could also access the wireless internet, download textbooks directly to your brain, listen to music, and visit remote destinations all because of implanted computer equipment?
Like all other advanced technology, this integration will begin within the military industrial complex and then move from there into the private sector.
