By “cyborg” I mean people with prostheses that don’t just replace what’s lost, but improve upon it. This is a big step, as we’re entering an age where we’re forced to ask whether people with certain prostheses are actually more capable than those without. We’re entering an age where “handicapped” will be an even more inaccurate term than it already is.
