What is it like to be a bird? Or a fish? How does it feel to fly above the ground, to swim across the bottom of the ocean? What would an animal meant for space feel like?
I’m a little obsessed with artificial intelligence. So much of the media I consumed as a kid had some kind of android or AI. Daneel Olivia from Asimov’s Robot novels. The Terminator from, well, Terminator. Star Trek’s Data. System Shock’s SHODAN. Hell, even the Transformers cartoons. I thought they were all amazing.
I have been watching a TV show called ‘Westworld’ and I think it’s pretty good. If you don’t like spoilers, you should probably not read this. I am absolutely certain I’ve spoiled all sorts of shit here.
