When you look for sth here

What are you reading Wednesday shared on Thursday

My current read is Philip K Dick: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

A phrase from page 34:
'He wondered, now, about her, too. Some female androids seemed to him pretty; he had found himself physically attracted by several, and it was an odd sensation, knowing intellectually that they were machines but emotionally reacting anyhow.'

Would I like to live in this world?
Not for all the time, but I'd like this idea for a month. Or two. The concept of singularity is really intriguing me lately. The one that, since artificial intelligence is being developed at a much quicker pace to the one of humans, eventually the day may come when the people are being managed and controlled by the machines.
It happens now, with emergency units and critical care provided to those with serious illnesses. Yet, it's being supervised by other people.
What if there were no others? Just technical equipment?
Quite a read, and quite a thought I have in result...
