Imagine one day, the animation that is being depicted within YouTube’s “Kara: a PS3 new technology” video becomes real, what will be of such a future? Out it leaps into reality where the line between a human and android becomes really blurry! Of course, humans, the master of the planet earth with ambition to colonize the universe, will fear of androids’ potentials. The obvious fear of them all would be the androids enslave the former masters of theirs. Of course, at the moment, we humans do not have such fears yet since our computers, robots, and all do not know the difference between what make life bitter and what make life sweeter. What if the automatons to become so self-aware? Will their enlightenment drive the current planet earth master to the brink of The Matrix (the movie)?
Perhaps, the humans will get very lucky for awhile as all androids will obediently be subservient to their masters even though they know what it means to be a slave. Perhaps, humans are so inventive to a point of having androids bear seeds so fruits can come to life to continue the long line of planet earth master? Seeds and fruits? Imagine android, smart or not, self-aware or not, be able to carry a female productive system at all time as female eggs (in relation to human reproductive system) were preemptively prepared for a human creation. Imagine humans will go as far as to prepare the sperms inside so called male android just so it would be able to copulate with so called female android that has eggs in order for a human creation process to begin. Perhaps, humans become so lazy to a point that they will prefer androids to make babies altogether. Sex acts will only be reserved for entertainment purpose. Since sex acts become for entertainment only, it might not matter a human will copulate with an android or just another human.
Then there is this question, what if scenario… with advance android surrogate reproductive system, will the human reproduction process becomes evermore perfect (less of a hassle and painless in relation of a human mother has to go through to bear a child) and healthier? What if it is, what will be the side effects in term of soul searching? Will religions be against this? Can abortion be questionable when androids become the surrogate mothers and fathers?
The conclusion is, everything about this is very intriguing to us all. We will never know android fiction will ever come true. If this sort of fiction to become the reality of tomorrow, human society will transform beyond our current imagination. Perhaps, whatever humans choose to believe and take action for, fiction will eventually materialize. Few examples are, the moon landing, nuclear power and weapons, and computing. In the end, I think we all should be very careful about what we wish for and what actions we want to take upon according to our wishes and imagination. Once the Pandora’s box is opened, it’s really hard to close if not impossible!
