How about this for the fix: They are small totally self contained clone colonies, set up to be somebodies idea of an ideal or desired existence, with the clones all conforming compleatly to the social norm, for example, a church of fundamental Christian, Buddhists whatever that is a perfect representation of the creator's values.Could also have economic output if desired.

There's certainly a lot of truth to what you write here. Yet, to be honest, I found it hard to write female characters even though I'm a woman (I tend to have the reverse problem to what you write here about sex though in that I just can't write romance even though the story sometimes calls for it). Anyway, the blockquotes are definitely the winning traits of this article. Go to Comment

What does the Islam of the Cosmic Era think about cremation? RL Islam as we know it today is very against it. Go to Comment

5/5 Above average even for you Scras!!!!! Love this almost as much as I love your Star Whales!(that will ALWAYS be my fav). I am especially impressed since I know you are an atheist and are not being driven to spread your own philosophy and instead unfold the cosmic era in the way you feel is natural to the setting! I have a HUGE ego when it comes to gaming, stemming by my ability to keep a game group going for 35 real years(still going).You are so amazingly superior to me it's not funny. This sub actually raises my opinion of you as a man, not just a writer. Go to Comment

Evil in some ways but human as well, staying alive when he just wants to die so I can feel some sympathy for him. 5/5 Go to Comment

The official answer is yes, you end up with a copy. There is simply more to a human being, or any sentient being, than just the sum of their memories and cerebral patterns. The copy is just that, and is functionally a 'clever machine'. It can pass the Turing test because it thinks it is sentient, but it is merely running through large series of memorized patterns. The hosts from Westworld are what you get when you make a copy of someone, and mess with their brains.

As for the second part, as the human being becomes less and less human, being replaced over time, by artificial parts, will see their sanity score start to slip. A human being is a holistic entity. As you take away, the being is compromised, and as such, the being suffers. As the sanity continues to erode, there will eventually be a psyche collapse, and this is the signal of spiritual and holistic death.

The thing that emerges on the other side is a machine that has human nightmares and machine capabilities, ala Peter Weller's Robocop. Go to Comment

Heh, this leaves the question wide open if you end up with an immortal copy of the individual, or the individual itself, and all the debate over that idea. In this case, I am in the 'Copy' camp.

A different take would be a slow replacement, neuron by neuron, from organic to artificial, without anything being turned off. The replaced organic neuron would be re purposed automatically to low-value memory, eventually disposed of. At some point the brain would be wholly replaced. Now, what would that do the the individual? What would happen to their 'soul'? :)

The Auto-Reiv

The servant robots of Ergo-Proxy are an excellent example of the mabu-ren style of robotics, with a few fixed panels, but largely supple bodies and while demonstrate the traditional stronger than humans trope, are not necessarily any more durable or tougher than the average human.

The Soldiers of the Foot

The classic TMNT cartoon turned the soldiers of the Foot Clan into purple clad robots, so that their destruction wasn't considered violent by the censors. These robots served menially, and went into battle silently, and proved little threat except in great numbers. Go to Comment

Nice analysis.

I liked the Fantastic four as a kid, haven't seen this movie yet. Not sure if I will - maybe if I run out of other things to watch on Netflix.
