  1. That cyborg article was interesting, but I feel like it left a lot out when it came to Blade Runner 2049. First off, the main thrust of the plot is trying to find a child who was born from a replicant mother and a human father. The other main thing is that K (Joi’s partner) is a replicant himself- seems odd to leave this out when talking about the humanity of cyborgs.
