How do we know we're not advanced machines? That our brain isn't some super computer we don't understand yet or that our veins arn't advanced wiring? How do we know that man is not a robot?

Because, it doesn't matter. We've gone hundreds of thousands of years, I doubt figuring out that we're robots would change anything.

How do I know that you all exist, and are not mere figments of my imagination?

Sometimes, I think about these things. And then I move the hell on with my life.

Well, technically we are. We are only mechanical biological systems. We have our source of energy, oxigen. The one thing that sets us apart from computers is that we can learn. And we are much more complex. And thousand of years of evolution.

Oh, and computers don't need to go to the bathroom.

You felt the need to propose an old metaphysical idea on here of all places? This is OT, this kind of discussion won't get far.

Our brains work like computers, nothing but electrical signals, neurons and what not. I'm not a genius on that stuff however...

Because we can't design robots with the intelligence and emotion we have.Silver_Dragon17


Keyword: "Yet"

There will be a day when we create new sentient life and the debate over whether they can be our slaves or not will ensue. We have computers now with the intelligence of infants... which is a big advancement over what we had 20 years ago.

"Technically" we could be called robots by the sense of the word that we are "machines" and have "computers" in our heads. Just all completely organic robots (which doesn't make much sense).
