Baggy: Dr. Zeebot, it seems that people and robots belong to two separate groups. We
seem to identify with robots and humans identify with each other. Would you please give
us a comparison of people and robots?

Dr. Zeebot: Certainly, Baggy. You name the characteristic and I will do my best to tell
you the difference between the robots and humans regarding that characteristic.

Baggy: What is the difference in the method by which robots and humans are designed?

Dr. Zeebot: Well, Baggy, in the case of robots, before any design is initiated, a careful
analysis of need is carried out. Specifications are written up and the engineers carefully
design the robot to meet specific needs of the economy. The design includes the production
of full user and repair manuals. In short, robots are product of intelligent design.

Baggy: That sounds quite reasonable. Now tell us how have humans been designed?

Humans have been designed by quite different techniques called "random variation and
natural selection". Design is for the plains and caves of Africa in ancient times even if
the person is to live in the modern areas of the US, Europe, Japan or Australia. No
documentation is provided. No list of defects is given. The product literally comes
screaming into the world. The rate of evolution is estimated at one bit per year.

Well, Dr. Zeebot, how is a decision made to manufacture a specific robot?

The decision to produce a robot is based on a rational need to fulfill a specific function in
the economy which will benefit society as a whole.

I don't think that humans are created to fulfill a specific need, are they Dr. Zebot?

No, Baggy, people have an instinct to create the "next generation" at a huge cost to the
parents. Sometimes the decision is due to "someone having too much to alcohol to
drink or "someone was simply horny".

Well, tell us about the actual production of a robot.

The production of a robot takes seven days from a just-in-time facility just like modern
computer factories. Manufacturing of components may occur in many different locations
then shipped to one location for the final assembly.

There are so many people in the world, it must be easy to manufacture humans.

Actually it is quite involved and very expensive. At least if the job is done well. It takes
nine months plus endless child-rearing that lasts the life of the parents. People often
refer to production as "reproduction" even though the baby is not an exact copy of
anyone.

If it is not an exact copy, why do they call it "reproduction"?

I am not sure, Baggy. I am too rational to understand why. Another ironic fact is that
humans have outlawed actual reproduction, which they call "cloning".

What about the construction materials, Dr. Zebot? Are humans constructed of any
materials that the designer wanted to use?

Humans, like all other organic creatures, must be made of organic cells. This includes
things like bones which could be better constructed of carbon fiber. Construction takes
decades to complete. Materials discovered or invented in the last million years such as
bronze, steel, carbon fiber, or titanium may not be incorporated into the design.
Everything must be made of cells. But cells die and must be replaced.

Wow, amazing that the human design works at all. You would think that they would all
be distracted with just staying alive and figuring why their life is so difficult and irrational.

Yes, it is quite amazing. Compare that to robots where all materials and fabrication
techniques are available to the design engineers.

Well, how about updating our information database, Dr. Zeebot? We robots obtain our
updates from the wireless internet. How do humans update their knowledge base?

In the case of humans it is called education. The time required to educate a human is
measured in decades. Humans must go back for continuing education that can take ten
percent or more of available work time.

That sounds very inefficient, Dr. Zebot. How do they obtain their education?

The better educated humans receive their learning at home at the hands of their parents.
Not all parents are qualified to do this home schooling. Most of the rest of the children
attend public schools.

Either way it still takes decades to educate a human?

Yes, Baggy. Humans cannot download information from the internet directly into their
brains. It has to enter via pictures and words. Little by little, bit by bit.

It must be frustrating to be a human and to have to spend so many decades
downloading information into your brain. I can imagine how frustrating that must be.
Well, all creatures require energy to function. Most of us robots simply use battery power
and recharge their batteries from electrical outlets. Would you please compare that to
the energy consumed by humans?

Certainly, Baggy. Energy for humans is obtained from food and oxygen. Food is a
complex set of vegetation and meat from animals and fish. Storage of food requires
refrigeration, freezing, dehydration and serving. Cleaning up is bothersome. The cost
of food for humans becomes very high on other planets or on a moon.

I know that we robots are inspected by the quality assurance department before leaving
the factory. How is quality assurance used to improve the humans?

With people, manufacturing quality assurance is limited to the biological processes
involved in the reproduction process during conception and gestation. Humans tend
not to interfere except for some who test for genetic problems during gestation and
terminate the pregnancy.

Wow. I would think that they would choose the genes that they wanted in their children
so that they obtain the characteristics that they want.

A few intelligent humans may test the genes of their offspring before starting the
process of gestation, but this is still rare. As a result, infants born with genetic defects
such as Autism are on the rise. About one in fifty boys are born with autism.

How do such errors in design get handled when it comes to robots?

Errors in design are given to the engineers so that the next generation may be improved.
Repair of primary errors is called "reworking" and may involve a factory recall and
extensive rework. Old models are simply recycled.

Well, how are primary errors handled in people?

Repairs of primary errors are handled by first dividing them into the categories of
retardation, insanity and criminality. Regardless of category, little success has been
had in retraining human subjects. Many people spend their lives in homes for people
with "special needs", mental institutions and prisons. Harmless mental patients are not
institutionalized and are referred to as "homeless people".

How about a secondary error such as when I accidentally cut off my left hand?

Repair of secondary errors in robots is simply called "repair". Service calls to repair
robots are inexpensive by comparison to human "medical attention". When you cut
off your hand, Baggy, you simply ordered another left hand and had me help you
replace it.

Yes, we did. I simply downloaded the instructions from the internet so that we knew
how to perform the hand replacement operation.

In the case of people, the repair of secondary errors is called "medical attention" and is
quite expensive. Cost of human repair in the US is over 18 percent of Gross National
Product and rising rapidly.

Why is medical attention so expensive, Dr. Zebot?

Well, compare replacing a human hand to our replacing your hand. In the case of a
human hand, the hand would have to be refrigerated until a surgeon could be found to
perform the operation.

Couldn't the man who cut off his hand just go to the internet and find out how to sew
it back on?

No, Baggy. You see, humans don't learn as quickly as you and I do. They cannot
perform operations until they have gone through many years of education. Surgeons
specialize in such operations and they are typically well into their thirties before they
have the education, training and experience to perform such an operation.

Wow, Dr. Zebot, it seems like humans are very expensive to maintain.

Yes, they are, Baggy. They are very expensive for parents to raise, feed, educate
and finally to give them a wedding.

What is a wedding and why is it needed?

A wedding is a ceremony where people agree to form a partnership whose main job
is to create the next generation of humans.

But, we robots don't have to do any of that. If we need another robot, we simply order
him from the factory and he arrives in seven days or less.

True, Baggy. You are starting to realize now why we are so confident that eventually
we will replace humans as the more rational and economic alternative.

I can see that it is inevitable that we robots will take over the world. It only makes sense.

1:39I don't think that humans are created to fulfil a specific need
1:43are they doctors a boat
1:46now baggy people have an instinct to create for
1:50next-generation and at a huge cost to the parents
1:53sometimes the decision is due to someone having too much alcohol to drink
1:58or someone was simply horny

4:43either way it still takes decades to educate a human
4:47yes baggy humans cannot download information from the Internet directly
4:52into their brains
4:53it is to enter via pictures and words little by little
4:58bit by bit it must be frustrating to be a human into have to spend so many
5:02decades downloading information into your brain
5:05I can imagine how frustrating that must be well
5:09all creatures require energy to function most diverse robot simply use battery
5:14power and charge their batteries from electrical outlets
5:17would you please compare that to the energy consumed by humans
5:21certainly baggy energy for humans is obtained from food in oxygen
