You know for a guy who never contridicts himself you sure like to do it alot and ironically that is allso a contridiction. Anyway, these two quotes here don't match.

The main difference is that the term Cyborg only applies to "cybernetic organism" that appear to look human while a Techno-organic can resemble any form of organic life.
In the first quote you said ANY being that is part organic and part cybernetic is a cyborg. In the second quote you said they'd be a technorganic as appearantly only technorganics can take on any form.
Cyborgs as you put it in the second quote have to be humanoid but you didn't specify that in the first quote.
So are you sure you know what your talking about because it kinda sounds like your questioning these definitions yourself.
More to the point, I don't recall the term "Cyborg" EVER being used in a terminator movie. They only refer to them as "the machines" or robots. Most offten it's "the machines". Technically speaking the T800, Arnold, was not even a blend of robotic and organic material. He was a full robot with an organic covering. Whenever they showed thoughs robots in the future scenes they didn't have the skin and were just the mechanical componants.
Data did have Organic componants intigrated into his circuitry at one point, implanted by the Borg in one of the movies. It actully surved as part of his body at that point where as the skin on the T800 only served as a covering, there's no evidence to suport it was part of their systems. They felt nothing if the skin was damaged where as Data could feel his skin.
The problem here is really trying to apply terms to all sci-fi that are used differently in every fiction. Kinda like an earlier argument we had on weather or not Mutant and Natural were the same thing. Because you were useing Marvel comics definition of Mutant and I was useing City of Heroes/Villains definition.
Allthough the definitions aren't much different.
Mutant is the next stage in evolution for Mervel, a suposidly natural evolution. But that begs the question, why doesn't everyone evolve the same way?
Natural humans, is just what we are in real life, every perfectly healthy human being is capable of the same things. And notice I said perfectly healthy because I realize some people have dissabilitys that could limit their abilitys. Some people however learn to cominsate for say the lack of haveing arms and again, we could all learn to do the same.
In the fictional universe not all mutants can learn to controll the weather or shoot lasers out of their eyes. So if this is a natural evolution why don't they have the potential to develop the same powers for every mutant?
Normal humans have the same potential so why don't any mutants have the same potential?
That's preddy much the difference between Mutant and Natural right there. Natural, the majority of your race has the same potential you do the only difference in your natural abilitys depends on training, education. Mutant, theres a high possibility you could be the only mutant with the same powers and/or physical mutation you have.
The next origin down the line is Science which is a form of being a mutant only in this case you weren't born mutant. There was an episode of Spider-man with an X-Men crossover that covered this. Spider-man was refered to as a mutant however because he wasn't born that way Wolverine complained about letting him in the school.
Technoligy are Science origins get mixed up alot as well but the difference is Science changes your own DNA giveing you powers. Technoligy would just mean you had no real powers but are useing armor and/or weapons rather than training yourself. In short Technoligy is another form of natural only the natural person isn't useing his or her own abilitys.
The X-Men are all examples of mutants.
Spider-man, the Fantastic Four, and the Hulk are examples of Science.
Ironman is an example of Technoligy.
Batman, Superman, and the Punisher are examples of natural origins.
Blade would probly be classified as Magic because vampires are mythical creatures. Magic is just a catigory all it's own that can't be exsplained by any of the other 4.
