Content: With the cognitive turn in semiotics, the corporality of the signs in human semiosis has become a focus of attention. It is apparent in verbal, nonverbal, and paralinguistic communication, where the human body is the embodiment of signs. Hardly discovered as a topic of semiotic research, the corporality of signs already appears to be a topic of the past. Faced with virtual realities, simulated bodies, artificial life, new bodily creations in bioinformatic constructs, and with the perspectives of cybernetic symbioses between human bodies and robots in sign processing, the disembodiment of the signs is the new topic on the semiotic agenda.
