The Cyborg Queers the Human body. By locating so much information, so much experience and knowledge outside the body, the boundaries between Human and Machine, Human and Animal, Male and Female, Inner and Outer become permeable, then fluctuating and then break down.
The continual flow of new data continuously reconfigures the categories of a Cyborg’s identity.
These mutating categories fly into Hertzian space in all directions at the speed of light, infinitely.
Humans try to incorporate the idea of continuity into that of identity – a collection of all the moments of awareness that arise from any particular moment of awareness. But Cyborg identity, riding through space defined by the electro-magnetic, stops time. The Cyborg is everywhere and nowhere.
Humans experience the Queerness of Queerness, the blurring of boundaries and categories. Cyborgs experience All Pervasive Queerness, the indeterminateness of information itself. This is the second mark of Cyborg existence.
