The Ghost in the Machine

I have now become a believer in the truism that machines have souls. Why else would they mock us with their promise of a digital Eldorado and than rabbit punch us with their fickle workings. I can hear the gears, fans and motherboards laughing at me as they break, stall and just choose not to work on demand. And it doesn't matter how much I love and pamper them or even if I ignore and maltreat them, they still act out of their own conscience choosing their actions like mood swings.

Yours in HAL,
