I Have A Heart

Le couer a ses raisons que la raison ne connait point. Blaise Pascal (1623 - 1662)
(The heart has a reason which reason does not know)

The movie I, Robot, may seemed to be setting a premise that one day humans will allow themselves be served by robots and the continued advances of technology but will face the consequence of losing their freedom and perhaps even their humanity to these machines. However, Asimov being a humanist, has a strong case that humans will not have the raw end of the situation because we possess the power of the heart that robots do not. Robots deal with statistics and probabilities. We deal with those too but we can choose to ignore the probable outcome and do totally the opposite.

That is why I am proud to be a human, despite my weakness and limitation. A human with a heart. A heart that cares for what is going on around the world and in my immediate vicinity. A heart that knows that I can't doing anything for anyone who doesn't want to help oneself. A heart that cries when I know I am unable to make things any better because it is out of my hands. A heart that gives in to its Creator because He has the final say. Deep down inside myself, mine is a heart that knows I cannot, but, must beat with the same tempo as our Blessed Mother's when she said, "I am the handmaid f the Lord." Running away from or ignoring these would be futile for my heart beats to the ancient rhythm of God's love already present since my own existence: "...our hearts are restless until they rest in thee" (St Augustine, 354 - 430 A.D.)

What does your heart speak to you today?

Robots, too, can choose to ignore the probable outcome and do the opposite. It's all dependent on the software. To simulate a highly confused personality, with zero predictability, all you need is to code in a random (response) generator. :)

That aside, today, my heart tells me, even more surely that "my Father made me for a purpose". *wink*

Thanks and BTW a robot follows thru with the order no matter what. I can change my mind at any point in time. That a robot can't do even with a 'random-random-generator'. The potatoes never tasted any sweeter than this!
