Cybernetics

Basically cybernetics is the study of communication and control processes in biological, mechanical, and electronic systems. The term itself does not imply two or more such system kinds merging together, yet it is most often used by the general populace to describe the combined system of biological-mechanical fusion or biological-electronic fusion.

The word itself, has roots in the Greek word for steersman, "kubernetes", referring to one who has used artificial means to expand themselves and exert greater control over their environment.

In early 2008, the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics researchers developed an omnidirectional treadmill to facilitate unconstrained walking in all directions through large-scale virtual environments.



This ten year old book, is a bit behind current advances, but is by no means behind the times. If anything, the changes since 1999, have only emphasised the points made in this volume, not diminished them. It argues that we are entering a virtual age, an age where information, minds themselves, are becoming divorced from their physical bodies.
