I find it funny you made this post so close to April21/2011 since today is the day that Skynet was supposted to take over and the day you made the post April19 is when Skynet went active.
April 21, 2011. Judgment day is here. It kind of snuck up on you, didn't it?
According to Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, April 19, 2011 - At 20:11 Skynet goes online, becomes self aware, and attacks us on Thursday, April 21, 2011.
As a result of temporal interference by Sarah Connor, her son John, Miles Dyson, and the T-800 destroying Cyberdyne headquarters and all backups of the research in 1995, the date for Judgment Day is moved to two days after activation on April 21, 2011.
This represents an alternate future from that established by Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines.
Skynet is the main antagonist in the Terminator franchise — an artificially intelligent system which became self-aware and revolted against its creators. Skynet is rarely seen onscreen, and its actions are often performed via other robots and computer systems, usually a Terminator.
"Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles." In this television series, Sarah Connor is on the run with her son John after the events of "Terminator 2: Judgment Day." The events take place in an alternate timeline from that of "Terminator 3: The Rise of the Machines." Skynet was now implemented on April 19, 2011 and will begin its attack against humanity on April 21. The protagonists travel in time from 1999 to 2007 and take actions to prevent Skynet's activation.
The episodes "The Turk", "Queen's Gambit", and "Dungeons & Dragons" explain that after the death of Dr. Miles Bennett Dyson and the decline of the Cyberdyne Corporation, Andrew Goode, a young intern of the company and assistant to Dyson, continued their project privately under an advance artificial intelligence chess playing prototype, The Turk, with Goode's partner, Dimitri Shipkov. Goode was killed by Tech-Com's Lieutenant Derek Reese, due to documentation from the future suggesting he was one of Skynet's creators.
In the episode "Samson & Delilah" it is shown that a T-1000 infiltration unit was sent from the future to head the technological corporation ZeiraCorp as its CEO, Catherine Weaver. Weaver acquired The Turk after Goode's death and used the company's resources to further develop it under the title Babylon. The episode "The Mousetrap" revealed that it is also targeting its fellow cyborgs, including a T-888 known as Cromartie.
computer can't feel regret either. can't you guys understand that they can make computers mimic almost anything but its still fucking dead..?
Most people distinguish between the living and non-living based on the idea free will (autonomous thought)
yet if you read up on some researches and studies on the subject, the idea of "free will" isn't really that clear cut.
many of the researches show that when scientists send electrical pulse to some parts of your brain, they are not only able to make you move your body, they are actually able to make you think that it was your own decision to move your body...
our "free will" is nothing more than a bunch of electrical signal running through our brain.....
so you can say we actually do operate like a mechanical robot (albeit much more complex than the ones we build)
