""Students of folklore and mythology all know the stories in which humans and animals were created in a myriad of ways. The gods themselves came about through strange processes, and in Japanese Shinto our islands were said to arise from the foam of the sea."
"Of course, stories of magic and the old gods and goddesses are not to be taken seriously. Yet, it was our ancestors who first had the idea of the creation of the “robot,” or “a human who was not a human,” but a conscious creature made in humanity’s own image."
