Almost a year back, I wrote a post on the same topic. At that time I thought I had written all that’s on my mind about humans being robot and there is nothing much left to write on the same topic. What I wasn’t aware that the thought process never stops. It keeps running in background unaware to you, gathering and processing new information which results in new ideas or adds an extra bogey to the train of thoughts.
Beginning of this year, I came across Themis trilogy which deals in an alien robot buried deep inside Earth with it’s parts scattered all over the globe. This made me think, what if this is true? What if there are alien robot hibernating deep inside Earth? What if they are waiting for some trigger or a signal from far far world to activate and unleash the fury? Fascinating and horrendous at the same time.
The robot mentioned in the trilogy are humongous requiring assistance from aliens or humans to activate and operate. The technology used in robot was meant to be activated by the aliens only but somehow, human minds manage to decipher and activate the robot with human authentication. The author has put the most logical idea upon it’s activation. That was it’s usage for military or combat purpose. What should have been studied for the benefit of humanity is being used to conquer and bully nations.
When I think about it, this is going to happen in near future. Technology has evolved so much that there is raw processing power available in compact and portable size which can process instructions as close as human brain. The artificial intelligence takes a leap every few years. Fortunately, due to power and greed of corporate world, right now it is being mostly used to know more about consumers. But that day is not far when they will be used in warfare as standalone soldiers.
Do you think technology is moving in right direction? Who is going to benefit more from it? The common human being or those hungry for power and money?
Till you figure out the answer..
