I’ve seen things
you people wouldn’t believe...

Roy Batty

 

Some time ago our species managed to climb down the trees and, after a long journey, crawl up onto a higher level of existential comfort. Thanks to this, we started to ponder more, to invent and, finally, tell our stories. We are a narrative species and it is one of our greatest achievements. Stories play a crucial role in our lives, helping us understand the world, capture experiences and transmit them to next generations. In theory, all of it leads humanity toward a splendid future.

But the thing is, Mother Nature does not care about protecting species. It is rather concerned with protecting the very objective of constant evolution.

Thus, while not being the final product, we bring our successors on the stage of history. Artificial intelligence is our child, one that’s already good at crawling. Cyborgs, androids, replicants, and other beings born out of our imagination all line up and knock on the doors of our reality. This is not a fable, it is happening. Prepare for the heebie-jeebies!

In order to cool down a little and shroud AI and its kin in a little warmer atmosphere, let’s remember that not so long ago it was robots, their close ancestors, that used to shake our imagination so. Despite their dull mechanic nature and all their deficits, they were a friendly synonym of a cosmic future.

A long time ago… That’s how our human fairy-tales used to begin. Will fables for robots begin the same way? What will be their problems? What morals? What worlds will their stories be set in?

„I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe…” said Roy Batty, the most famous of androids. May this phrase serve as your motto while thinking about the FABLES FOR ROBOTS that you would like to display on our walls.

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…
