Bioethics in Replica: A Short Story

Bioethics in Replica: A Short Story

My newest short story, entitled “Replica,” battles the question of how much technology should be integrated into the human body.  Logan Martel is an Army Sergeant who learns firsthand what it means to lose one’s humanity.  Without spoiling anything, he is used as a vessel to show the reader how little humanity thinks about the ethics of robotic integration and technological dependence.

I challenge you to read my short story and post back here your thoughts on the ethics of cybernetic implants and the use of technology going forward.  Where will it stop?  Will we become one with the machine?  The military applications of genetic and robotic modifications to modern humans is extensive, but is it going too far?  What are your thoughts?
