- A robot shall protect itself from harm, provided it does not conflict with Rule 1 or 2.
Robots are rapidly evolving, some into vicious killing machines, some are little more than electric bookshelves. Some fly all the way to Afghanistan to bomb little kiddies in their hospital beds. Some robots will fetch any movie or music you command it to, and play it back exactly the way it was played back the first time, over and over…if you are one of the nondividuals who like modern pop music you even have robot orchestras playing your favourite, repetitive, gormless series of structured noises. Pop music, written on and by computers, are the final proof that robots have no soul. Those music robots are not subject to the Three Laws, and continue to harm our sense of artistic appreciation.
