Abstract: The article is devoted to relations of a man (the main character in a novel) with an artificial woman – fembot named Kaja. The author, uses the findings of researchers, critics and theorists of post- and transhumanism, defines depicted by Pelevin hazards caused by human moral regress, as well as disastrous for him development of technology. Surprisingly androids become an opportunity for spiritual rebirth of people, because they are superior to man, not only in efficiency of work, but also in morality. It is difficult to determine to what extent the artificial woman described in this work is still a robot, and to what extent already a human being. Can we talk about her as a being possessing will and personality? As it turns out, cybernetics opens up the possibility of subjectivity to objects such as cyborgs and androids. The article presents the issue of man’s relationship with entities that are considered to be non-human. From the perspective of the main character Kaja is therefore “Other” of the human entity.
