I am an avid fan of BAG.
The whole franchise actually.
I am soon going to see season 1 of
Westworld. (Watched Sarah Connor
Chronicles and other timeline,
Robotic shows too).

Has anyone seen Humans from the
Acorn network? I'm in season1. It's
pretty provocative. It pleads the
side of the "synthetics". How they
aren't without soul but can become
inhabitant of a soul so to speak. I
began thinking back to the old horror
film Chucky. Spirits can possess
dolls and other materials. Why not
robots that appear human?

Also I've heard in interviews of the
future and "our" soul's will not only
be hybrid like. AI/organic. They've
concluded we one day may be completely
synthetic with our souls "downloaded" into
the avatar/robot. This is sinister to
think of, in light of all this hacking
and computer virus age we are aware of
already. If ever there were a concept of
"Hell", I'd imagine having one's soul
trapped within a body that was possessed
In a mechanical sense. In all honesty,
we know that we are already codes. Binary,
if you will. We are in essence already
robots! It seems far fetched but it
looks rather true. I mean crazy, right?
They use a term "bio" hacking. How would that be possible if we weren't more a machine than a natural organism. I realise I've
gone into a tangent. lol my apologies, I
pontificate too much. :blush:

Any thoughts on the whole AI concept that seems to be so huge in our current timeline.

I did watch Humans, season 1. I LOVED the TV version that I caught on YT, but not what I can buy that cuts stuff out that makes me care about the characters, so I haven't kept up with it (and will only watch later seasons if someone illegally uploads it to YT which doesn't cut the good stuff out). Just in case you haven't seen the uncut version, an example is where the one android breaks out of the brothel. The cut scene includes how she's careful to take a book which has sentimental value, and that it was important to her. They also greatly expanded on how that android would later interact with people trashing the synthetics in wrecking them that made it better. It's been years so I don't recall the details now, and I won't find them on the season I purchased.

As for spirits possessing them, if you want to go there then I'm sure angelic beings could possess them as well. Heh, blessed robots...

I do not find it sinister to think of having an android body. It might be, and space travel to another star system could be horrific as well, it just depends on how it's done, not if it's done at all. In our society, we're practically cyborgs already who couldn't live without our computerized cars, phones, automated systems, and various implants are becoming more common, from artificial hearts (careful with the microwaves!), a bionic eye, a spinal implant that can allow paraplegics to walk, to even birth control implants. And one should not romanticize the filthy, violent, vulgar, brutal past we came from. For all the troubles and violence of our world, our species (at least in first world nations where we're completely dependent upon technology already, and implants continue to become more common) has never had it better (at least generally speaking).

And I do see humans as being controlled by software already, and think the term "mind virus" is an apt one. And there are reasons why even some scientists aren't dismissing outright that we live in a virtual reality (or at least a reality that is very much like a virtual one). However, we (at least some of us) do have the ability to learn and adapt, and that is sentience and intelligence. I really don't know what machines that develop true sentience (and ability to adapt) will be like, but don't see them as automatically being evil (but there's no better way to turn someone, or a demographic, into a monster than to treat them as one from the start).
