Humans Discover Humanity Is Fake

Coca-Cola is the real thing. Diet Coke is not the real thing. Diet Coke is a fucked up, flavorless fake version of the real thing.

Man is the real thing. A human being is not the real thing. A human being is a fucked up, flavorless fake version of the real thing.

Ask yourself one simple question - if human beings are the real thing then why are we so obsessed with making fake versions of ourselves and our abilities...

Wikipedia: BINA48 has variously been called a sentient robot, an android, gynoid, a social robot, a cybernetic companion, and "a robot with a face that moves, eyes that see, ears that hear and a digital mind that enables conversation." BINA48, a robot owned by Martine Rothblatt's Terasem Movement, Incorporated, is designed to test two hypotheses concerning the ability to download a person's consciousness into a non-biological or nanotech body after combining detailed data about a person with future consciousness software.

Wikipedia: Avatar premiered in London to positive critical reviews, with critics highly praising its groundbreaking visual effects. During its theatrical run, the film broke several box office records and became the highest-grossing film of all time. In the movie scientists use Na'vi-human hybrids called "avatars", operated by genetically matched humans. Cameron described the film as a hybrid with a full live-action shoot in combination with computer-generated characters and live environments. "Ideally at the end of the day the audience has no idea which they're looking at," Cameron said.

The Guardian: From the Golem to Frankenstein's monster, Skynet and the Matrix, we are fascinated by the old story: man plays god and then things go horribly wrong
