"Let's push the word cyborg to its origins in the rat implanted with an osmotic pump in 1960 in Rockland State as part of the project to make a completely self-regulating man-machine system. Let's push it back to Nobert Weiner and " Cybernetic and society " where informational science is used to explain both the organic and machinic processes, or push out the way cyborgs figures inhabit both technical and popular culture. Let's really look into the ways we think of ourselves as information processing devices or reading machines or semiotic devices in a way that is influenced by communications theory, or look at the way cybernetic control systems shape military doctrine or shape industrial labor process. " Cyborg " is a way to get all the multiple layers of life and liveness as well as deathliness within we live each day.(...) Our bodies, ourselves; bodies are maps of power and identity. Cyborgs are no exception. A cyborg body is not innocent; it was not born in a garden; t does not seek unitary identity and so generate antagonistic dualisms without end (or until the world ends); it takes irony for granted. One is too few, and two is only one possibility".Donna Haraway.
