“Cyborg” is a science-fictional shorting of “cybernetic organism”. The idea is that, in the near future, we may have more and more artificial body parts – arms, legs, hearts, eyes – and digital computing and communication supplements. The logical conclusion is that one might become a brain in a wholly artificial body. And the step after that is to replace your meat brain by a computer brain.
