- We live in times of immense
scientific and technological progress which creates new conditions for our contacts with
the world. We receive direct transmissions from the surface of the Moon and Mars, or ocean
depths. When something happens in one area of the world, after few minutes its
already on our screens. Technology continues to change the world, and - although many
things came to pass, it is not the end of the whole run: transformations will get even
more fast-paced. Today, its impossible to predict the shape of our reality within 20
or 30 years from now, when you would be in your prime, with your generation creating new
life conditions on this planet.
- These transformations exert
enormous influence on human psychology, mentality and physiology; they also put their
pressure on human bodies and interrelationships. As regards personal life: likes and
dislikes, habits and longings, we are not the same kind of beings as our parents.
- The changes were so overwhelming
and complex that many of you, without being aware of the process of transformation,
attained cyborg status.
- Research conducted by CUKT
(Central Technical Culture Office) on representative segment of young people, proves that
the aforementioned transformation influenced 55% of our society.
- Changes refer to various sources
of conflict, but they are most distinct in the area of human behaviour and sexual life.
Modern advanced societies moved away from the laws of nature long time ago, while
presently they continue to reshape their habits and behaviours. But, where do the
transformative tracts lead us?
- Human sexual life has not always
been joyful and approved of. There were times, when the matters of sex were considered to
be indecent, sinful, Devil-baited. Throughout human culture, Satan represented
supreme evil, eternally opposing God and his son, Jesus Christ. Such words as
impurity or sin are not easy to define; they seem even harder to
comprehend when faced by those growing up and living in technical culture system which
could be characterized by (...) objectivity, professionalism, standardization.
Technical culture functions on the level of mathematics and is based on the idea of
convertibility of everything into digits. 1
- We will not longer ponder upon
these archaic terms. Its enough to say that sexual activity has been for ages
blocked by innumerable bans, and the ideal solution was to exclude it altogether. That was
the ideal of Medieval asceticism, thats also the notion behind the warriors of
God image. Only abstinence remained an active idea in our times, but it
largely concerns body and its biological functions. The good name of erotic life itself
was rehabilitated. Today, its agreed upon that sex may be beautiful, profound and
unique source of knowledge, progress and happiness.
- Thinking of your future happiness
today, we want every one of you to experience it, to use it wisely and most efficiently
according to your respective abilities. This way, everyones sexual life could become
joyful and full of satisfaction. Thats what we call the rehabilitation of eroticism.
This beautiful current in the sea of technical culture is a source of positive change, and
hope for the future.
- You are inspired by an
immaterial elevation of cyberspace2. After all, human body is only meat. You
cyborgs are able to cross the border left unexplored by humanity in a transgressive act
that remains unreachable for regular human beings. It also entails extra-corporeal
projection and random shaping of ones formal aspect, setting free from ages-old
beauty standards and limitations imposed by cheap industrial personality and sex software.
- It is up to you whether
youd be able to feel erotic beauty in the future, love and be loved, where sexual
life elevates you to the level of Matrix and I software becomes amorphous and
omnipresent, an endless multiplicity of solutions and versions.
- You should know a lot to wisely
set up your own emotional life. Its not true that one can survive without this kind
of knowledge. Research proves that even animals have to learn forms of sexual behaviour.
The same rule applies to cyborg, as well as human being.
- Here, your first experiences and
observations are essential. This is also the purpose of The Cyborg Sex Manual
software. This is
- the start-up disc for your
emotional and erotic life, an information pool that would allow you to start gathering
your own experiences and build personal behavioural database.
- Among living creatures, the human
attained the highest level of development. Even though human built intelligent machines
and conquered interstellar space, it's prone to be dependent on the same bio-laws as its
relatively close cousin, gorilla, and extremely different species of snail.
- Laws of biology regulate basic
functions of organism. These are the functions that decide both on the life-support of a
separate entity, and on permanence of the whole species.
- It's entirely different among
cyborgs. Your linkage with the nature laws, along with their strong influence, becomes
- "Something which could not
be measured, either does not exist, or has no value whatsoever. There is no aspect of
human relations, which is not susceptible to pressures of technology and scrutinizing eye
of an expert". 3 Your biology and psychic life depend on the same rules as every
other phenomenon of technical culture.
- "Efficiency is the aim of
the technical culture, while economy is its mechanism. The most efficient economy means
looking at people as market factors. The idea of technical culture society could be best
conveyed by people submitting to technology; human life is cheaper than those of their
- Your basic instincts: hunger,
self-preservation and species sustain, are substantially different than those belonging to
the human being, which is naturally closer to the animal world. Your reactions are linked
with the laws of economy, efficiency and demand. When something is destroyed, it is
exchanged for new, perfect version. When the efficiency raises, the given device, which
caused this quantitative shift, becomes duplicated and stays on its level of functioning.
It is really hard to precisely define the background of these differences and
fluctuations. The research was begun and we miss scientifically confirmed results. We
would not like to deceive you.
- The basic difference between
humans and cyborgs regarding basic instincts is the level of psychic life and resulting
sense of belonging to a precisely defined generation, along with its inherent goals and
means of their accomplishment. Your species-preservation instinct, according to which new
people are being born incessantly, while the humankind has no fear of extinction, was
replaced by an instinct of individual being submissive to a system, or generation.
Preservation of species is no longer an individuals task. It results from mass,
absolute obedience of an individual entity to a generation. Singular identity is being
disposed of in the name of compatibility with a system, becoming global organism, which is
a guarantee of omnipotence and immortality of a single cell and a whole society.
- Melting with Matrix does not mean
the regress of individuality, but is a guarantee of storing individual preferences on
an indestructible disc of technical reality.
- Control sexuality and you
will master everything! 5
- Sexual instinct is extremely
powerful. It resembles new generation of processors: beautiful, entrancing and full of
might. The information processed by its circuits becomes the source of knowledge, while
knowledge becomes power. But when processor makes a mistake, the whole system is stalled
and unsaved data are lost.
- Its the same with sexual
instinct. Love, which is the product of this instinct, can be a source of creation,
transgression, sacrifice. Unfortunately, sexual instinct sometimes escapes from the
control of reason, bringing spoils, misfortunes and destruction. The cause of numerous
problems and tragedies of human life was always an impossility of coping with
- People have congested stomach and
- their brain has the same amount
- as bull's milk 6
- Satisfying sexual drive is not
exclusively a personal matter. The reasons are not only economic. There is something which
could be termed as sexual culture. There are (even among cyborgs) specimens which satisfy
their sexual instincts without caring for the consequences of their deeds. One cannot act
intuitively, or outreach the controlling reason, while satisfying one's sexual appetite.
Sex life is in principle everybody's vital business. You are not allowed to do anything
which could be considered harmful to your partner. It would decrease the other's
efficiency, threatening the whole system.
- Hence, we came to the very
beginning of "The Cyborg Sex Manual" software. We respect your right, or maybe
even a duty, to get all necessary informations on the topic. Emotional affairs could, and
at some developmental stage should, arouse your interest.
- We want you to get this
informations directly from the Central Technical Culture Office (CTCO), which is going to
present them in a scientific manner. We want to give you only thoroughly researched data,
because we believe that you are going to use them wisely.
- Many life mistakes result from
lack of proper knowledge. That's why, explaining basic problems, we think that hopefully
we're going to enrich your emotional reactions and prevent many of you from doing harm to
- We don't know you, user of the
software, we have no idea who you are. It's very important, because the registers on which
you address the mature specimen, a boy, or a child who may use this CD-ROM, are all
- That's why it was not easy to
work on this software. We wait for your comments and evaluations. Tell us what was
comprehensible and what wasn't, which formulations you don't agree with, and so on. If you
could write to us about all that, maybe we could come up with the better and more complete
version of this manual.
- While using this software, you
are going to watch a couple of characters that were created for the purpose of this
project. They are at your disposal. You can follow them from different points of view and
at various moments. Imitate them. Almost every scene allows you to move higher or lower,
to the left or to the right, discovering the bodily details of our characters and their
positions. The exclusions from the rule are spots located on the highest and lowest
extremities of the sphere you move on, that contains the image of the observed couple. In
each of your navigation points, certain sentences will be displayed. They would constitute
your personal complex database.
- It would not solve all your
problems - they are too difficult and complex. We want this software to function as an
introduction. We advise you to go back to the software now and then. Every time, it's
going to start in a different, randomly selected field, while the sentences on display
would be differently linked and comprehended by its user in a new context.
- As experts, we know how many
mistakes result from the lack of knowledge.
- The biggest problems are of
technical nature and result from improper information. 7
