We live in the world of contrasts. We all know that. It’s hard to be original. How many ideas have already been exposed! Many things have been analyzed from all perspectives! A lot of scenarios of the future have already been revealed and a lot of them are still occurring regularly.
A few minutes ago I was outside. Even if it’s Friday I didn’t had the desire to go out with friends. While I was admiring the dark and so inspiring sky, a few thoughts came to my head. I couldn’t stop myself from sharing with them.
First of all I want to talk about good and evil. There is a theory that in the world, good and evil must be in a balance. Children, from the early years, in fact, are grasping with this idea. Remember the wonderful stories that start with “Once upon a time”? The fight of the Prince Charming with the Dragon, or the girl trying to take her fate in her own hands regardless of the stepmother’s evil plans, or the poisoned apples that can make people fall asleep. The idea of this confrontation between two powers is with us from birth to death. Sad that in real life, rarely the kiss of pure love is the antidote to any problem.
Even every human being has these two qualities equally. For example, a person with a successful career, high social status and a beautiful body can stir up the envy of many other people. But one might not know that this person has health problems or can’t have children or can’t find his second half. Equilibrium.
Therefore, at least for me, a question arises. Terrorist attacks. Terrorists are evil, because of them innocent people die. This represents actually the clash of good with evil. By implementing the theory we have discussed earlier in real life, I would have to conclude that these attacks contribute to a certain balance. Seriously? Why do I feel that evil wins? Thousands of people who were in the wrong moment in the wrong place now simply don’t breathe. The names of some are inlaid on marble slabs. Others live in the memory of their families and friends. Some of them even have active Facebook accounts! But they are not living! They don’t exist anymore! Dust. Sadness. Tranquility. Is it really necessary to sacrifice so many people in such a cruel way in order to keep an imaginary balance that’s spoken about since antiquity? Damn it.
While I was outside, I thought what if all the victims of the terrorist attacks, innocent people at first sight, actually had skeletons in their closet and were guilty of something? But let me tell you a shocking secret! We are not holy. We all have sins. We all regret certain things.
So, theoretically, if we compare the battle of good and evil with a football match, the team of good is scoring goal after goal, while the team of the bad guys just shoot in the supporters. The good team has won, but still, to say in a polite way, it’s not enough.
Yesterday, in Saudi Arabia, an exclusive event happened. Saudi Arabia has made history by becoming the first country to grant citizenship to a robot.Robot Sophie, modelled after Audrey Hepburn, is a creation of Hanson Robotics Company. Many people are scared. The future that seemed to be somewhere far away is already here. Sophie, in an interview, said she didn’t pose a threat to the future of humanity and would not cause a machine riot against people. She is smart. I guess she suppose that people will kill each other before even machines will gain a lot of power and autonomy to make their own moves. Threat will disappear by itself. Or, soon, a new theory will emerge. Fighting of Good with Evil with Robots.
And when Prince Charming kissed Snow White, she wonderfully woke up from eternal sleep. The Prince activated the artificial intelligence of the beautiful lady dressed in white, who turned out to be a robot. And together they began to fight with the terrorists who stole from the rich and kill the poor. So basically even the Robin Hood story should be rewritten. Rewritten in binary code.
