It’s not about physical love. Every day people use more and more technology in their lives which makes them look like robots described in science fiction. You can see such cyborgs of 21st century on the subway playing with their iPhones or staring into space while listening their music. As for artificial limbs, organs and eyes? Already a reality.
Furthermore, robots have become more sophisticated. They can walk, talk and learn. Man and robot have become more alike and at some moment the difference will disappear. When this will happen – the problem will disappear. Sooner or later we will stop worrying about that, and that will be normal. So meet you on the other side!
What you can do well now, robots will do better in the future. For now, we are still needed but robots are already used in space discoveries, places on Earth that are too dangerous for humans, labs and assembly lines, and take part in real human wars. We can only hope that robots will not evolve to organize a rebellion. For now robots complete humans not replacing them completely. Technology moves forward and some robots have already showed themselves in science.
Experts don’t even argue whether people will ever make love to robots. They talk about how to change our society, when that day comes. This may indeed cause a chuckle, but many people have had experience of virtual relationships and sex, for example, in a closed chat rooms on the web for ‘adults’. Or within multiplayer online games. And this relationship lasts for years, despite the fact that people are unable to meet in real life, so, to truly appreciate the physical attractiveness of each other.
A robot made of steel and synthetic flesh, indistinguishable from a real person will have an even greater appeal. This issue can have a serious impact on the development of human relations, in particular, the formation of families
