I remember that futurama episode.
They were depicting the end of mankind.
What was happening, was that robots became so sophisticated that they could completely replace humans for everything, including the most important: sexual activity.
As people had everything they needed readily available in their bed, they felt no drive to go outside or do anything. Slowly but surely, mankind was brought to an end.
To a certain extent, it resembles Matrix (you know, the movie, not the mathematical object), where you choose to be ecstatic in a virtual life or live a real life whatever it is, knowing that you would not know the difference.
To my mind, we’ve already lost track or “Reality” as we knew it.
We’re all wired to computers and cell phones, talking to electronic devices like they were real people, watching TV as if those things were really happening.
I want to believe.
