Surrogates

Wow.  What an astonishing film--about a future where humans live their entire lives through robotic surrogates that give you all the sensations and experiences--but without the risks.  Of course, the robots don't age, or get fat, or ugly.  And if the surrogate dies, you can't get hurt.  Or can you?

To say that this is an astonishing commentary on our technologically deranged society is quite clear.  I would blog some more about this--but I think I will stop engaging in this surrogate social behavior of blogging, and go do something physical.
