Lmao...I guess that's a no It's pretty much what you're describing. I had a philosophy class in college (Ethics) and we nearly spent a whole class period discussing that thought experiment. It was interesting to hear everyone's ideas on it.I have absolutely no idea what this is.
excellent post.I believe if someone created such a machine, there would be a public backlash against the machine and its creators. There would be an anti-machine movement advocating the destruction of the machine which would eventually lead to its banning. Though at this point, the majority of earth's population would already be slaves on it. And with the destruction of the machine, and censoring of the knowledge that created it, humanity would once again search for a path to reclaim the childhood pleasures passed down only in story from their grandfathers, from the age of the Machine.
In time, given humanities sheltered, and SA-like upbringing, they would eventually turn to the prophetic writings of Aurora, nothing to fear, and RoninDistance. Statues would be made in their honor, replacing the Roman and Greek gods and goddesses of the past. But as in all things created and worshipped by man, this too, would eventually fade into the dark miasma that is humanity.
Flowers will bloom, waves will crash, and earth will dry.
