This extension of himself by mirror numbed his perceptions until he became the servomechanism of his own extended or repeated image. The nymph Echo tried to win his love with fragments of his own speech, but in vain. He was numb. He had adapted to his extension of himself and had become a closed system.

— Marshall McCluhan, “The Gadget Lover: Narcissus as Narcosis,” Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man (1964)

— Donna Haraway, “A Manifesto for Cyborgs: Science, Technology, and Socialist Feminism in the 1980s,” The Socialist Review, 1985
