We are Borg

[...Cognitive integration may be an important subspecies of cyborghood, but certainly not the only one. Criteria for cyborghood should not exclude technologies that play noncognitive roles in our lives, such as pacemakers or mechanized limbs, for this type of biological/technological synthesis is paradigmatic for cyborgs. Still, not everything that plays a causal or even
interactive role in the life of an organism should be sufficient to ground an argument for cyborghood.]
