Comments on Archetype: Wake Up As Robot
'I can see my hand!' Wake up as a robot, in a film and in reality. Right now. (Read the complete story)

"So how do you know that you've awakened as a robot and are not merely dreaming? If you look with your eyes and see yourself moving your robot hands, you then employ philospher G.E. Moore's famous 'Proof of an External World', as given in his 1939 paper. The proof is dramatically reenacted in this video, uploaded by PhilosophyAnimation.

"Don't forget PKDs Electric Ant. What if you wake up as a robot, and you ARE a robot!"

(Peter Jacobs 2/14/2012 3:19:31 PM)
"Perhaps some of us would _rather_ sleep on as robots?

"Check out the reality construct tape from Philip K. Dick's 1969 story The Electric Ant (which refers to a kind of robot)."

"I've said this many times and it's starting to become clearer to people. Science Fiction is not fantasy. It's just History that hasn't happened yet."
