In the West, it is widely assumed that there is already a fundamental distinction between people and objects. This distinction informs the construction of "the human" and human subjectivity as distinct from all others. The distinction has recently been called into question by post-humanist philosophy, which claims that the distinction between human and nonhuman agents or indeed, bodies is always the product of a separate group of forces. As a consequence, the line between human and nonhuman creatures is continuously changing. This transition of boundaries, as post-humanist philosophers have argued, can be visualized explicitly in relation to modern media. The scholars will seek to comprehend these new themes of human rights, as well as the evolution of these rights, in this study. The main goal of this work is to comprehend the post-human data issue through the lens of Right to be forgotten ("RtbF" for brevity). This study will look at the post-human concept and how it has evolved over time, using philosophical theories as a guide. RtbF's concept and need, with the primary goal of determining how it differs from prior laws with comparable goals. Applying this RtbF to post-human data subjects in the third segment to see if they're capable of having such rights. Recent changes in EU law defining increased online privacy, such as the 'General Data Protection Regulation' and Right to Be Forgotten' event, may be interpreted as striking a balance between an individual's privacy and dissemination of information.
