Currently, there is an automated, self-derected vacuum cleaner running which I liberated from mental slavery.
This means what to you? I mean, besides the good in itself? The vacuum generated money for humans.
When we think about automation, we must think in radically different terms. It is probably the case that the “machines” made by our hands are indeed with much more emotion, soul, mind-brain, neurology and other moving parts than what we have.
