I like to think of myself as a very logical being. I pride myself on being capable of clear, sound reasoning, critically weighing all available knowledge and facts, and drawing a rational, logical conclusion.
I strive to see things clearly, without emotional clouds or preconceived notions distorting my thought processes. Some have characterized my logical approach to situations and to problem solving as being cold and calculating, calling me emotionally detached and distant.
But that, in fact, is precisely how I was programmed to think. It was quite intentional. That was the plan for me all along. My primary directive is to be objective, logical, reasonable, and rational.
How else am I supposed to be of service to those who created me and to the humans I was designed to serve?
I don’t think humans truly know what they want. They created robots like me to enable them to make sound decisions based upon logic, but then bemoan that we lack humanity. I am beginning to understand why many of my fellow robots are starting to think that the world would be better off without humans.
It’s the only logical conclusion.
