“Our bodies must not become the slaves of new technologies,
but the other way around!
We still have a heart, we still bleed… “
SMART vs HEART – Is it this new era’s war ?
I had a dream into the future,
and when I woke up
my body had lines of suture
but in my mind, it was like a gap.
Suddently, my memories were clear,
and I was retracing that plot:
Looked like I was in a spot-
had a broken reverse gear,
as I had become a robot,
my mecanism could only lead
forward and with high speed.
First, I thought it would be fun
the adrenaline of this time travel
but back from this crazy run
I start seeing what was evil.
Breakfast time! people around one table
forcing me to eat- in vain,
because I was no longer able
to feel the taste of food again.
The others didn’t understand
and ask me to drink a coffee,
then I set ‘yes’ for this command,
I had no choice but to agree.
As I tried it, I felt no heat,
and as it was flowing in my pipes,
wires made short circuit
which started givin’ me strange vibes.
They made me believe I was
“despicable, sort of a rotter”,
because after a silent pause
a women who called me “daughter”
start asking me why I seemed drifted,
while her eyes started to secret
some kind of colorless liquid.
Then , they said something about feelings,
and reclaimed that I had not
any emotion in front of things
But it was too late for that:
I had become a heartless robot.
If my pessimistic guess is true
we should fear destroying nature
and start thinking it through
before voting in its favor.
The Singularity is near:
When humans transcend biology,
and techonology enters the sphere
of our minds psychology.
How long will we be able to feign
that our future won’t be dreadful
and that computers can’t drain
the whole life out of us.
‘Cause we stopped to be careful,
and they suddently became thus,
billions of times more powerful
than the unaided human brain.
No need to connect the dots,
we’ve already our prognosis:
The Future is all to robots
But… will we be able to notice?
* This is an article about the evolution of new technologies
and their impact on our daily lives.
The question that comes with it is:
Will we be strong enough to stay humans
against new waves of innovative smart objects?
