    Default Robots are taking over the world. OUR world.

    That's it. We're all fucked. There is no existing field a human can do that a robot won't eventually be reprogrammed to do forever. Human society's over. We're dead.

    It's like living in one of the various perversely-developed civilization planets in Star Trek.

    Asimov... Save us!
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Suppose a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?"
    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.
    - A.A. Milne.

    Is now an inappropriate time to mention that I happen to be taking a robotics course?

    Robots are awesome and if anyone deserves the chance to wipe out humanity, it'd be robots.

    On a more serious note, I find this to be very disturbing. This isn't something that is as simple as automated labor. This is something that requires strategy and creativity. How am I going to make money now?

    Well for what it's worth, I don't think robots will ever be as good at neurosis and psychosis as people. There's hope for us yet.
