Brave New World: lady robot makes women redundant
O brave new world that has such people, innit?
Looks like we are indeed superfluous to requirements. Soon, the super-rich won't need us for anything any more; not work, our minds, and not even for sex. They have science and technology servicing the onanistic requirements of the Masters of the Universe. Who needs real people when you can have a simulacrum of the real thing?
Human relations break down. Love is lost to us as a species. The weak kill it off in themselves or succumb to illusions of strength through seclusion. And so humanity bites the dust.
The new heroic quest of the Age of Alienation — keeping your capacity for love alive. That's humanity at its most highly evolved.
Everything else is a Schwarzenegger movie.
