Ghost in the Shell shows cyborgs on a mission

14 Nov

Ghost in The Shell is based on a Japanese manga. It tells the story about how a cyborg society is changed by the Artificial Intelligence.

We are surrounded by technology nowadays. This technology will slowly merge with the human body. In a near future we will become partly cyborg. Ghost in the Shell follows a cyborg cop policewoman in this near future. Scifi movies are never only about cyborgs, they are mostly about how humans think about cyborgs. “All things change in a dynamic environment. Your effort to remain what you are is what limits you.” says the Puppet Master in the movie. This same Puppet Master is asking the questions: “And can you offer me proof of your existence?
How can you, when neither modern science nor philosophy can explain what life is?”

The cyberpunk movie also inspired that other movie full of cyborgs; The Matrix. For all you cyborg and Artificial Intelligence lovers. This is a classic techmovie for your watchlist. This is just a whisper. I hear it in my ghost.
