natural. born. Cyborgs. In der Sciencefiction verlassen die Menschen bereits den
Planeten. Die technisierte Höhlenwelt der Raumfahrtzeuge erzeugt für den
Körper einen konstanten Zustand, einen Zustand der Gleichförmigkeit,
Regelhaftigkeit, Berechenbarkeit, Sicherheit und Geborgenheit. Zugleich
bedeutet die Entgrenzung der Körperfunktionen gegenüber einer prothetisierten
Umwelt auch eine neue Form der Abhängigkeit. Was exakt auf menschliche
Bedürfnisse hin konstruiert ...

However, in what way does the model of the natural-born cyborg add something
to the discussion concerning the concept of imago Dei} In the following and final
section of my paper, I want to argue for a model that makes Herzfeld's relational
interpretation of the imago Dei more concrete, and that is able to take seriously
from a theological perspective the idea that humans are natural-born cyborgs. 6.

In Natural Born Cyborgs, Andy Clark argues that humans have always had a
natural proclivity towards tool-based human extension, beginning with the first
uses of speech and language.1 With the development of recent smart
technologies, he sees us resembling cyborgs, though not through the merging of
flesh and wires, but in the more profound sense of being “human-technological
symbionts”2 that are starting to accept machines as tools for overcoming human
limitations.

Conclusion. Dada Cyborgs in the Twenty-Wrst Century Human biological brains
are, in a very fundamental sense, incomplete cognitive systems. They are
naturally geared to dovetail themselves, again and again, to a shifting web of
surrounding structures, in the body and increasingly in the world. —andy clark,

We all are “constitutively” natural-born cyborgs, that is biotechnological hybrid
minds. Our minds should not be considered to be located only in the head:
human beings have solved their problems of survival and reproduction, “
distributing” cognitive and ethical functions to external non-biological sources,
props, and aids, which originate cultures. The paper also illustrates the interplay
between cultures and distributed cognition and stresses the role of some
technological artifacts as ...

Two Views on Cyborg Metaphysics A. Clark and Haraway Donna Haraway
sketches a maximalistic theory of cyborgs in her wonderfully prophetic “Cyborg
Manifesto” (1985). Andy Clark creates his own minimal cyborgs according to his
less prophetic but equally interesting Natural-Born Cyborgs (2003). Clark writes:
New waves of almost invisible, user-sensitive, semi-intelligent, knowledge-based
electronics and software are perfectly posed to merge seamlessly with individual

Some of the younger readers may eventually be like the cyborgs Bruce Sterling,
William Gibson and other writers in the cyberpunk genre explore. If so, they
would have “hybrid” minds, being part natural and part artificial. ... His discussion
is followed by an excerpt from Andy Clark's Natural Born Cyborgs, a project that
argues that we are already seamlessly interwoven with technologies around us
and that the path toward becoming cyborgs does not lead us to become

4 PARADOXICAL DELIGHTS PREAMBLE A particular view of the human — that
expressive actions are to be grasped by the interlocking of lookings and
glancings and that people can communicate only a certain amount of information
because of limits imposed by bodily and mental processing powers — reminds
one of cyborgs. But these cyborgs are already in front of us in flesh and blood
and biomechanics. They are the humans of Andy Clark's Natural-Born Cyborgs:
