Assignment 2 - Hybrids, Cyborgs and the Augmented body
The mixture of human and machine reminds me of movies like Blade Runner ,Gatteca and Terminator. Its a know fact that we are curious about what would happen if we take advantage of the advancement in technology in the medical field to a whole new level and use machines to create human parts as well as machine parts for humans organs. Basically, we are creating a new breed of humans. DNA and genetics codes would be easliy corrected from future cancer or diease or altered to better us in anyway we want. As we finish watching each movie that dealt with the notion of science and moral reasoning, we see that human beings have a way of getting corrupted and ruins everything because of greed. We are then put in a position to play god, which is not right. We should be humble and never over do anything because it will change how we live and where we end up for the worst.
