Greg Holland WRA 110 January 22, 2008 Writing Reflection Gray, Chapter 9 Term: Cyborg There are many types of places where humans are completely dependent on machines: cyberspace, outer space, and aqua space. In cyberspace, reality is being there, even without your body.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
