Am I the only one who saw the potential for some serious psychological horror with Jake’s mental transformation in James Cameron’s Avatar?

I mean, seriously, what if the reason for his deep, mental change wasn’t some ‘enlightenment’ but rather a result of the inbuilt instincts/chemistry of the body he was inhabiting? If that were the case, what the story really is, is a man slowly having his personal and cultural identity replaced with that of an alien; am I the only one freaked out by that?
