Being a cyborg is more than just having artificial mechanical parts; you can consider medicine and the use of any other drug as a way of becoming part cyborg. The use of medicine is scientifically engineered, in which it treats diseases and aids in enhancements. We use technology to change our biology, in which we enhance our mental and physical capabilities. People may think that a “cyborg” is something of a physical ap... ... middle of paper ... ... or bad thing but it makes everyone different. In the future it may be possible that it is normal to be a cyborg and not normal to be just a human.
Yes, physical harm is a given, there’s no telling what mutations might happen when a clone is created. On the other hand, the psychological part of this is not so obvious. The psychological piece of this is apparent in the clones. Why? Human cloning is said to be unnatural.
These cyborgs are praised and glamorized as so called super humans that are distinguished as a different species that has evolved by the hands of man. Although cyborgs seem to come from the imagination, there are cyborgs walking and living among us. They are not the advertised plated metal humans and they do not talk in robotic voices, but are like regular humans. These cyborgs are medical cyborgs. Some of them have mechanical devices implanted in their ears to help with hearing and overcome deafness, wear contacts, have an insulin pump to help control diabetes, or have an artificial heart to maintain the circulation of blood in their body.
The super intelligent machines may argue to themselves that they are superior to humans. They may also develop the theory that the only way to save humans, is to save us from ourselves. They may eliminate some of us due to overpopulation trends or disease. Although we do not currently possess the ability to create such complex intelligence, many who are studying this field have thought of ways to prevent an intelligent machine takeover. Isaac Asimov, a quintessential author of more than 500 science fiction works, developed a group of fundamental rules humans would give to intelligent machines in order protect themselves.
Clearly, this says a lot about scientists because some still further the act of cloning and disrespect the law of human cloning, and dishonor society's value as a whole; I mean we will love to get the answer for illnesses but not through cloning. If we are to compare a normal human heart from a clone, the CNS (central nervous system) or PNS (peripheral nervous system) to a “non-human” nothing about the clone will be real all that the clone is its physical appearance. Multiples researchers said that a clone will help find for who medicines for cancers and many other questions, wait for who clones or human beings? There might be some good outcome from it in
The possibility of dangerous cyborgs in society all leads down to a matter of choice. Cyborgs are not programmed to do as they are told, they were full human that decided to enhance their ability with technology. They still hold human characteristics such as emotions, choice, a ghost, and identity. So in response to the question, “are cyborgs dangers to humanity?”, is yes. Cyborgs are a danger to humanity but likewise humans are a danger to themselves.
After the cure, “he will be treated as a freak, set apart from others, the object of tiring scientific and public curiosity, and exposed to unending physical and psychological testing.” (Thomas) In addition, does the human clone’s goal of life disappeared? Who are born for someone in the world? Is there anything like this inhumane act except human cloning? The final argument advanced by opponents of banned human cloning is that human cloning is the creation of an organism that is an exact genetic copy of another, so it will cure diseases as quickly as possible. However, the research said differently.
This article written by the American Medical Association involving the Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs suggests that cloning a human would not be an exact duplicate of the person cloned, so a parent that chooses to duplicate a super athlete is not guaranteed to also be a superb athlete because of their life choices could not be replicated. Furthermore, what if a super athlete did not want to be cloned but was forced too, this is likely to violate their legal rights. Something also mentioned in this article is the uses of human cloning and the reproductive technology though the use of a woman’s infertile oocyte.
We assume that if another person behaves in the same manner as us, then they must have a mind. This could be troublesome because according to Turing, machines may soon be able to mimic human beha... ... middle of paper ... ...ers, which would be highly likely. If the AI’s were used in this way, would it not count as slavery since the AI’s would have minds? In an episode of Star Trek, called Data, a man wants to disassemble an automaton which had artificial intelligence to learn how to recreate and mass produce it. By mass producing the automaton, he wants to create an army of the AI’s to use in dangerous missions which would save human lives but put the AI’s at risk.
This process makes it possible for scientists, or geneticists, to reproduce unlimited amounts of duplicates, which are known as clones (Pence: Flesh 18). Human cloning has reached a point wher the ethical and moral values have not been considered, and we have not fully learned and understood the negative consequences of such a new and overwhelming technology. There are, however, individual benefits of using genetic engineering for medical purposes. Such purposes include gene therapy and asexual reproduction. The use of genetic engineering in our society is viewed differently in two very arguable ways.
