Even before turning to instruments, we already have a technical-cultural body, since our body always keeps track of the action of technology and culture. It is indeed thanks to both technology and culture that our body had become what it is, that is a human body, meaning a sort of biological paradox - a body unfit for survival, unspecialized and unadapted, but extremely plastic. This does not imply that the action that current technologies have upon our bodies, with their extraordinary capabilities of manipulation, does not have any consequences or cause concerns. We do nothing alien to our “nature” when we expose ourselves to the action of technology, as well as we do nothing alien to us when we set limits to technology, and not only to it. The conti- nuous process of self-limitation is in fact a necessity for men. And setting limits to the possible (and to what can be done) is also the only way to safeguard it.
