Things seem to exist on a more horizontal plane of being rather than in strict hierarchies; the existential anxieties of the characters, Major Kusanagi's notably, are therefore registered less in terms of identity politics (critics of the anime in particular have noted how gender and sexuality are muted, if not mooted, by cyborgization (7)) than basic ontology: they not only question what makes on properly human, they question the reality of subjective existence.
