Popular culture continues fuelling public imagination with things, human and non-human, that we might become or confront. Besides robots, other significant tropes in popular fiction that generated images include non-human humans and cyborgs, wired into historically varying sociocultural realities. Robots and artificial intelligence are redefining the natural order and its hierarchical structure. This is not surprising, as natural order is always in flux, shaped by new scientific discoveries, especially the reading of the genetic code, that reveal and redefine relationships between life forms. However, for the first time, a new, artificial, species is being introduced into the existing diagrams, and, for the first time, it appears to hybridise the anthropocentric natural world order.
