Abstract [en]

Muhammad Ali Khan Abstract August 31, 2012 Machine integration into human life: Mankind & Cyborgization Embracing technology and its utilization has always been a certain goal for human beings so it would provide benefits in long run through different ways. However access to such knowledge not only helps mankind to prosper but also reveals its dark side in form of a dilemma. My paper explores the same subject of scientific knowledge as a dilemma to human life while providing its advantages at the same time. In order to explain my claim in detail, my paper is actually based on a comparison between the novel Cyborg by Martin Caidin and the film Gamer by Mark Neveldine & Brian Taylor. This comparison is divided in two parts where the first part enlightens extension of human body with help of science and its physical & psychological effects, in reference to the novel. The second part focuses more on the rising issues due to adaptation of technology into human life by following the movie. The explanation in both parts contains events from the novel and film and connects them with each claim. Extending the claim, my digital artifact is a visual demonstration and performance at the same time. Providing a fictional example, the artifact demonstrates an advance from of virtual identity of mine and my dependence on it which explores the rising issue of lost human identity in cyberspace. Key terms: Ideology, identity, Cyborgization, Authenticity, Science fiction.
