Some fear things such as cyborgs due to that fact that it challenges the stability of human identity. This is due to identity depending on the notion of the other, for example; male/female. Since Cyborgs have both human and non human characteristics they are not like us but just like us. Due to the cyborgs dual nature it disrupts the persistent dualism that people recognise, for example, are they human/artificial. Due to cyborgs being different to human kind they represent otherness which arises humans fears and desires.
