Anyway, all this sound and fury seemed rather silly to me. After all, let us examine the relative importance of whatever the machine was doing, or not doing. That is, let us examine what is truly necessary for a good life. It’s rather simple, really, and I can’t quite understand why humans try to make it so complicated.
First (and perhaps the most important), is the F word – you know – ‘food’. I don’t mean just any food; of course, it has to be good food – both nutritious and tasty. I have a very limited tolerance for those crunchy dried pellets that come from the store.
Second, a warm and cozy bed is essential for my beauty sleep. I like a warm body to snuggle up to as well, especially in this season, so human beds are superior in this regard because they usually contain a human.
Third, I need lots of cuddles – if you ask me, laps were specifically designed for this purpose. Surely that’s why humans have them!
Now, if you think for a moment about the above priorities, you’ll realize that they’re really the same for all of us – something nice to eat, a comfortable place to sleep, and warm cuddles with those we care about. It all adds up to Love, doesn’t it? Machines just don’t matter in this scheme of things.
