Our Irreplaceable Body

We look at drawings like this and we see that maybe we don’t have the accuracy of a camera but we have heart and we put passion into what we draw, it took me 3 days to complete this drawing where as a camera could snap a photo in 3 seconds. So why you may ask is the point? I would like to explore this question a little bit more. The Human body is a complex machine that has thousands of difference processes going on at the same time which is topped by a an equally complex sorting center that we call the brain, so What is the difference between the our Body and the Robot. This scenario will show you the answer:

You are at the opticians as you look around you the peoples faces are blurred and as you strain to pick out the features in their faces you feel a terrible pain in your head , they sit you down and say I’m sorry we can’t fix it. Yet in a parallel universe the same thing happens but the result is different they say Good News! we can replace your eye with a Robotic Eye isn’t that great! It won’t look the same but that won’t matter it means you can see better.

Now if I am right the second option disgusts you whats more I am guessing that you are thinking “When will it stop soon they will start replacing everything we have with robotic replacements” It is this natural reaction I am counting on it is called “Body Perception” which means that you view your body as yours and utterly irreplaceable it is this that separates us from our robotic counterparts.
