Week 6- Cobb, Chapter 6

Also, we seem to be constructing a self through the commodities we buy, forming our identity through consumption, which creates in us this never ending need for more. Finally, however, movies have shown us that we do not actually desire to become merged with the technology we seem to worship. We do not wish to be perfect cyborgs but believe that our finitude is what makes us human.
