That's funny. There might have been other prototypes.
Air people: They floated away.
Fire people: They destroyed the wood people and then burnt out for lack of fuel.
Water people: They all dried up.
Metal people: They all rusted to death.
Light people: They were too afraid of the dark.
Flesh people (us): They became too interested in the pleasures of the flesh and God destroyed them all.
I still like that line from Jurassic Park. "God creates dinosaur. God destroys dinosaur. God creates man. Man destroys God. Man creates dinosuar.
Dinosaur eats man. Dinosaurs rule the Earth."
This whole "We create our own existence" thing doesn't seem like a lot of fun. What a lonely, depersonalized, uninteresting place it would be if
everything and everyone else in the universe was purely created by your own perception and you KNEW it, 100%. Would you still be able to feel things
like love, the joy of sharing, the meeting of minds, self-sacrifice, charity and the other positive things in life? This calls to mind Phillip k.Dick:
Can man/woman fall in love with a being of artificial intelligence? Can a robot really feel sorrow, joy, love and empathy?
