Anyway, beyond solving rubik's cube and playing chess, what is the endeavour in which a robot cannot take part or channel at all suscesfully? Why won't the future automatons be alive? What is the fundamental difference between a mechanical structure, organic or inorganic, that imitates life and life itself? Is there any, virtual or real? If it said that there is a difference, is it just some kind of authority who is defining and differentiati g? Perhaps then, someday, will be a powerful automaton the one who will define life, its unique life, truth itself? That is, where does life begin and end? Therefore, where does death too? Along these lines, there is a peculiar book, a preview in http://goo.gl/rfVqw6 Just another suggestion, in order to free-think for a while
