There is a great rush among “logical thinkers” to develop a living intelligent computer, a silicone intelligence. Tremendous strides have been made in the ability of silicone machines to process information. Still the spark of life is missing. The world wide web mind is developing. Still no one has determined how to give it heart. Without heart there is no concept of the feeling of truth, honesty, love, or beauty. The silicone remains a lifeless machine, a tool for good and bad.
In time we will see if carbon life (us) and silicone life will continue to be tools of creation and destruction or if both of us will follow a higher symbiotic course.
