Transcendence over three weeks ago – sorry for being so late. It was okay, but nothing mind-blowing. I found HAL so much creepier.
It did spark a debate on whether one would choose to “live” eternally as a computer on a massive hard drive somewhere, if one could. Also, as an extension of that question, what make a human, "human"? If you cut off my arms and legs, I’m still human. What if you cut off my stomach too? What if I’m just a brain/stem combo – still human? Robocop kinda talked about this – but he had a few meat organs left. What if I all I have are the unique chemical composition of my brain and the electrical synaptic responses therein?
Dark thoughts for a Spring day.
Oh! 2.5 out of 5 stars.
