The story so far:
Better titled, “Robots, Seed banks, and the Iron Fist”. There seems to be a dynamic between technology and humanity, and I believe it involves distraction. The bookkeeper told me there are three simple ways keep inline.
a) Tamper with their lifestyle through continual economic strain.
b) Inform them that part a is backed by imprisonment or death.
c) Keep them so distracted as to not see where a and b coincide.
Sounds like war.
a) Economic sanctions
The irony above is that you cannot hear this. Thus Robots, unless I have missed something, have not fully replaced the human ability to hear. Robots have evolved to the place where a wide variety of human tasks can now be automated, thus removing the human element from certain aspects of industrial and technological advancement. Some guy with a big playground liked to refer to his Robots as a certain marsupial, but then again he is known for Big Ears.
Seed Banks? And no, I am not talking about the Cannabis Cup. At the request of the bookkeeper the Norwegians have built a bunker with seeds for after world war three, or just in case. Personally I find Norwegian women extremely beautiful, so I am pleased they have all the seeds. I wonder how the Dutch feel about this?
The Iron Fist. So we have replaced You with a Robot that is automated and does not starve, plus we have a seed bank, just in case. Norway by the numbers is the best place to be on Planet Earth, and was the most Peaceful in 2007. So they have the seeds.
