There is a famous scene in Goethe's in which the protagonist tries and fails to identify the demon Mephistopheles.

Maybe I’m even bolstering it or helping invent it, the same way Snowcrash is supposed to have been thrown down on all the conference-room tables in Silicon Valley as a sacred text smuggled back from the future. The net result was (as I expected) a full unshackling of publishing, so that by now everything is being published, from the most heretic Strugatskys to the worst SF porn and kitsch. (DS, 1990) But I feel LOST every time I try to read one of these. There are two predominant variations of the cyborg: the physical cyborg with cybernetic parts built into a biological entity, as well as the cyborg of consciousness, which deals more with the interfaces between human and machine minds.

In science fiction circles, "cyberpunk" is a genre that often features countercultural antiheroes trapped in a dehumanizing high-tech future. In scifi heist Inception, mind hackers build dreams where they con their marks into giving up valuable information. Both are set in the near future, in a world where cybernetics are prominent.

Cyberpunk music is perhaps the hardest aspect of the culture to define because cyberpunk is essentially a literary genre. Perhaps most notably, it crops up in 1999’s The Matrix, which drew much of its vocabulary (down to its title) from Gibson’s vernacular. Other candidates might be Storm Constantine and Misha. Cyberpunk makes clear that information is a name for the content of what is exchanged with the outer world as we adjust to it and make our adjustments felt upon it-to live effectively is to live with adequate information, the fictions of Cyberpunk.

John Shirley wrote articles on Sterling and Rucker's significance.[25] William Gibson with his novel Neuromancer (1984) is likely the most famous writer connected with the term cyberpunk. The greatest artistic achievement of the long-ago twentieth century, currently in the keeping of a network of “ad-hocs” who keep the classic attractions running as they always have, enhanced with only the smallest high-tech touches. Only once in the introduction does Sterling suggest the gender of those producers of stale futures when he posits a connection between drugs, personal computers, and cyberpunk as "definitive high-tech products": "No counterculture Earth Mother gave us lysergic acid—it came from a Sandoz lab" (xiii).
