AMAYA VELASCO, Hermann Omar. Hacking bodies. A virtualization of the Human. Desde el Sur [online]. 2023, vol.15, n.2, e0017.  Epub 25-Abr-2023. ISSN 2076-2674.

In 1953, DNA molecule structure was found, and the enigma of life was deciphered as a set of information codes of biochemical data; thenceforth the human being has been represented as an input and output information system and, it has been set a discourse that place the cyborg as an image that emphasize the opposition between technology and the living organism. This thesis will develop the idea that virtualization of the human body -it means that the materiality of body becomes virtual when its biological and organic condition is taken to the universe of information codes- consequently it is treating as a living computer system. The phenomenon of body hacking will be explored as a post and transhuman movement, to wonder about the processes of daily interaction between human beings and computer entities.

Palabras clave : Bodies; cyborg; posthumanism; transhumanism; virtual.
