Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?

by Adam Popescu

A story I read today in Gawker really creeped me out.

This robot chick is disturbingly lifelike—her eyes look like there’s something there. You be the judge.

I think I responded so acutely, because Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep? is my new best friend, resting on my night stand. Philip K. Dick exploring consciousness in humans and machines. What is it to be human?

Is it flesh and blood, or thought and emotion?

Does your heart have to beat in order for it to work?
