Now why exactly do we need to program a robot to simulate love? We're all living in a land of make-believe. Make believe a man can be a woman and two men or two women can conceive a baby. Make believe that killing a baby is like choosing peanut butter. Make believe a machine can love you. (Well, I know my blender loves me when I use it to make a milkshake.) It really is insane.
The article reminds me of the mad computer Hal in 2001: a Space Odyssey. Pretty soon we won't need people for anything. Crazy!
