Comments on Archetype: Wake Up As Robot
'I can see my hand!' Wake up as a robot, in a film and in reality. Right now. (Read the complete story)

"So how do you know that you've awakened as a robot and are not merely dreaming? If you look with your eyes and see yourself moving your robot hands, you then employ philospher G.E. Moore's famous 'Proof of an External World', as given in his 1939 paper. The proof is dramatically reenacted in this video, uploaded by PhilosophyAnimation.

"I've said this many times and it's starting to become clearer to people. Science Fiction is not fantasy. It's just History that hasn't happened yet."
