There is a theory by Israeli political scientist David Eidelman, according to which in the distant future our planet will be populated by two types of people. Some will retain their human appearance, and their lifestyle will be in many ways similar to ours. Others will turn into real semi-cyborgs. Similar characters have already managed to set the teeth on edge, thanks to numerous American science fiction films. People who partially turn into robots will live much longer and better. The health care system will lose its meaning for them. They will refuse regular food.

Half-cyborgs can undermine the value system of our society, because they do not need warriors and do not need slaves. They will destroy the very concept of power.

People who have managed to renounce their natural needs will completely destroy the old world order to the ground. The idea of ​​inventing semi-cyborgs is not new.

Many science fiction writers have dreamed of such an invention. It is not surprising that it is these scientists who will try to create in the first place when the opportunity arises. The likelihood that this will happen does exist.

People are still divided into groups. Because of the rags (flags), they kill or humiliate each other because of their skin color, language or origin. I think it will be so. There are always people who try on themselves all the novelties and trends of society, and there are conservatives or old-timers. Plus, humanity is very fond of dividing everything into "friends" and "aliens". If we don't get rid of old instincts biologically (evolution) - technology may be the solution. Another thing is that people with technology will sooner or later be able to turn off unnecessary instincts, they will be more reasonable than independent ones. On the other hand, technology can be programmed, so such people can become even more slaves to the system.
