The Neo-Luddite is an activist technophobe who rejects innovation as evil. His anarcho-primitivist "Butlerian Jihad" is a sacred war against the machine. Is he a hero or a lout? Is resistance truly futile?
The Cyborg is an exogenously extended organizational complex, unconsciously functioning as an integrated homeostatic system. She is both biological and mechanical, a human-machine hybrid in which the organic body is modified with robotic and electronic devices. Does she have a soul?
The Extropian is a Singularitarian who embraces technology as a means of life extension. In her vision of a transhumanist future, inevitable advancements in robotics, nanotechnology and biomedical science will ultimately provide human beings with the ability to merge with machines and live forever.
"Unless there are slaves to do the ugly, horrible, uninteresting work, culture and contemplation become almost impossible. Human slavery is wrong, insecure, and demoralizing. On mechanical slavery, on the slavery of the machine, the future of the world depends." ~ Oscar Wilde
