    For Jean-Francois Lyotard, the cyborg is a symbol of fear Mankind must be aware that it has transgressed the boundaries between the organic and technological, inhabiting a world which views machine implantation in humans as normal and necessary. It implies a future, Lyotard warns, which may dangerously negate the value of humanity itself.
