Advanced nanobot engineers have finally hooked up the brains of two people to act as one! They can’t think for themselves – only echo what their programmers have jammed into their skulls. Science knows no ethical bounds – yay!
Remember The Terminator? I’ll be back … yes, we all thought that was a fun movie … but nein! It vass nein a movie!
That’s your kids and grandkids. Why make robots of steel when you can just use what already exists? A human being has better systems than any MIT grad can make in his robot laboratory. And, Holy Pinocchio, are they making them!
The Israelis are already making robots that know kung-fu and can distinguish between an Israeli and a Palestinian when it pulls the trigger – and never makes a mistake (as far as Israeli news outlets will tell you).
Russia and America and China and everybody else who is trying their darndest to fuck up this planet are horny for AI. Those two little letters will be the end of humanity as we know it.
When evolution takes too long (I don’t have 1 million years to grow gills, dammit!) then science will propel evolution to light-speed! Your brain will be hooked up to other brains and you will be told how to think and what to think about and what to love and to hate and what to buy and whom to hate and whom to love. Emotions are commodities.
Did you catch your son trying on mommy’s nylons and liking the feel? Not to worry, that’s not where MIT wants the kid to go. Instead, he will take daddy’s crossbow or AR-15 and pretend he’s a soldier on the hunt as he skulks through his neighborhood at night … that’s a good little “evolved” future human.
Without free will, the human being and the AI robot, or Terminator cyborg, is essentially the same thing! But the human has a lot less metal, but, alas, more injuries … so Elon and Gates and others will transform parts of the flesh of Homo sapiens into steel so when they’re sent into a war zone (Semper Fi injected straight into their brains) then they will last longer than a regular human who might get scared and run from the unjust war.
The MIT geeks can abide cowards!
And when we’re all robots for the future 10 people who own everything … paradise will finally be lost.
