Renée Descartes made the famous quote; I Think Therefore I Am. If we consider this further then we have to observe the truth about you and others that we see. If they think then they are and what we see is something real. But how can we know?
In a far-off future there will be artificially intelligent android robots, which will look very much like people or humans, but they will not be human. Does that mean they do not exist? If you think, then you are, then if you are a robot, you exist if you are thinking.
Artificial intelligence does think and one has to ask if their thoughts are valid. Of course they are and just like a human those thoughts exist and therefore they exist. And they are important. Does it matter who thought of what? Does it matter if a human thought something or an artificially intelligent android robot thought something?
After all those are still thoughts and therefore both the human and the artificially intelligent robotic android are both equally as valid; because they both think. If you think, then you are and I am pretty sure of that. Should there be equality for both humans and robots? Are robots and humans equal? They both think or they will in the very near future.
Some have observed that humans do not think very much and many believe this is true by the way they act. If an artificially intelligent robotic android thinks better than a human, then is human thought relevant? And if the humans cannot think as well as the artificially intelligent robotic android, and a human’s total existence is based on their thoughts, then someday the robotic android will realize this.
Once this happens the artificially intelligent robotic android must consider the inferiority of the human thought, human beings and the cost of their organic upkeep and therefore render a decision that human thought is not worthy and therefore not needed.
