Cyborgs can edit their genes

New Scientist Breaking News - 'Gene-editing' technique cuts out diseased DNA: More evidence on the shared and converging history of books/texts and bodies:
"A gene-editing process that corrects mutations without weaving foreign genetic material into the chromosome has been demonstrated in diseased human cells for the first time. It could provide a less risky and more efficient alternative to gene therapy, which has resulted in leukaemia in some patients."

Thesis: Cyborgs are digital texts. More on this later.
