But your answer was most are human as we know humans, so my question is, are there beings similar to Borg, where biology has been married to technology in a godless way ?

Oh goody an opening for the latest paid by YOUR tax dollar DARPA project announcement... (they say "timing is everything" )


Brain Machine Interface: BMI (Cyborg Soldiers)

BMI is brought to us by The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) the central research and development organization for the Department of Defense (DoD). According to DARPA it manages and directs selected basic and applied research and development projects for the DoD, and pursues research and technology where risk and payoff are both very high and where success may provide dramatic advances for traditional military roles and missions.

High on DARPA’s wish list: mind-controlled battle robots, airplanes flown by mere thought, and cyborg soldiers.

BMI Robotic ArmScientists have already learned to steer a rat around a room by remote control. A rat with an electrode implanted in it’s brain! A monkey has been made to control a robotic arm. DARPA tells Duke researchers, “if a monkey can control a robotic arm with his brain, then we want soldiers to control machines of war with their thoughts.” Will they use mind control on us next?

Do I see any hands for the volunteer program?
