The cyborg symbolizes the extension of nature into new forms. Cyborgs indicate that the old mechanistic framework is giving way to something new. They destabilize our fixed understandings of nature because the cyborg has as much affinity with technology as it does with wilderness.
Cyborgs, therefore, are hybrid entities that are neither wholly technology nor completely biological and have the potential not only to disrupt persistent dualisms but also to refashion our thinking about the theoretical understanding of the body as a material entity and a discursive process.
