Daniel S. Friedrich


The Vision (King et al.) opens up with a white suburban couple bickering as they bring a plate with warm cookies to their new neighbors. The husband doesn’t see the point in
offering cookies to robots, which probably don’t need to eat. To which the wife responds:“They are not robots. I went online. They are something else. They are synthe-somethings”. “Honey, I love you, but they are toasters. Fancy, red toasters. They are not like you and me. They don’t eat cookies, y’know?,” he replies as Vision opens the door. Right after Vision and his wife, Virginia, thank the human couple for the cookies and offer to set up a dinner one night, they dump the cookies in the garbage can and converse on what they see as a meaningless act. That is when Vision lectures his wife Virginia: “To assert as truth that which has no meaning is the core mission of humanity.”
