Is it really happening? Does the replacement of naturally grown parts by artificial ones mean were turning into machines? Does our increasing dependence on technology to remember things for us mean we're getting ready to turn into machines? What is a machine? What is a human being? Can one entity be both these things? What about an animal? What's the difference between an animal and a machine?
Are we machines already?
Come on, ATS. We can do better than this.
