Awareness




Then some robots are alive.

Self-aware robot turns mirror on humankind

Quote:

Nico gazes into the mirror in front of him. Looking back is his reflected self, wearing a grey Yale University sweatshirt and a baseball cap cocked at a jaunty angle. When Nico raises an arm, he recognises the arm moving in the mirror as his own.

It may not sound like much of a feat, but Nico is a humanoid robot. He has just become the first of his kind to recognise his own reflection in a mirror.

Robots are only aware of what they are programmed to be aware of.

Makes one wonder about those who are only aware of the physical universe.

That's quite a generality. Are you a materialist?

If it is all just bullshit, then how do you explain existence? Materialism dictates causality, so is there a first material cause? Yet all materialism is composed of impermanent compound elements, so a first cause would be subject to decay and therefore it would not seem logical for a decaying material to spring by itself out of nothing.

You should not exclude materialism from that bullshit category if that is your mindset. Either there are truths in everything or there are truths in nothing, and if there are truths in nothing then existence has no existence.

I have just one word:

becoming

We are always on our way to being something else. I am not the same person I was a moment ago.

hmmm... a few words come to mind... varying is a good one, wavering and adventuring also comes to mind, but i think i would have to settle on futile, as depressing as that is, i think that would be my word.
