Anyone who had a heart would take me


'This "you are only a robot" syndrome will be some kind of boundary across which a human must pass to feel love to its fullest extent for a robot, though in the case of certain groups within our society, crossing that boundary will seem perfectly natural. Those who prefer to relate to computers rather than to humans will doubtless find it no problem at all. Nor will many nerds, many social outcasts, and those who will be only too happy to find someone, almost anyone, who exhibits affection for them.'

David Levy, Love & Sex With Robots (2008, p130)

Thank you so much for this. I hope that your regular fans will enjoy it.

As to my central premise, only time will tell and since I am 64 I won't be around in the middle of the century to see whther or not I am right.

All the best,
