Iron Lungs Tingle My Spine

Though they are a machine to keep an individual alive and breathing. I can't help but see the chilling image of merging man and machine, of artificially and mechanically running our bodies rather than organically. I get a dark vibe from a picture like this, an unhealty vibe. It almost seems like the industrialization of our bodily processes, similar to a scene in The Matrix where our mental energy is harvested.
