Conscious Robots By Paul Kwatz
eBook (PDF): $7.53
Science tells us that being human isn't quite the way it seems: we're not just humans, we're also machines... created by millions of years of evolution for the purpose of spreading our genes around...

Does it mean we're not living the lives we would choose to? Seeing ourselves as 'Conscious Robots' doesn't sound like a lot of fun. But facing up to the reality of being human has surprising benefits: once we understand the mechanism by which our choices are controlled we see why it's so difficult to lead the happy, contended lives we've always promised ourselves.

But since it is an evolving living system, it also has the capacity to learn that it may not actually be the robotic self, but instead be the mystery that it sensed through its long journey of evolution — the mystery of Awareness, the Life within — the mystery that can never be known by the mind but must be “experienced” with an empty mind.< Less
