Unable to find the perfect girlfriend, a man has built a robot girlfriend for himself. The story is here.
She even says no. But then he programmed her to do that too, which means total control.
We all face two possibilities -- real relationships, in which we become vulnerable, versus fake relationships, in which we set the preconditions and retain control. We can do this, or try to do this, even with God.
Robotics versus relationships. Dominance versus surrender. "I will never be hurt again" versus "If Christ died for me, then pain must be the price of love. So okay."
