a virtual or mechanical artificial agent. In practice, it is usually an electro-mechanical machine which is guided by computer or electronic programming, and is thus able to do tasks on its own. Another common characteristic is that by its appearance or movements, a robot often conveys a sense that it has intent or agency of its own.


If the doorman is primarily a irrelevant and redundant data discarding mechanism.

and the right mind is primarily a data storage and collating mechanism.

and our right mind is our connectedness with the universe

Is all that is happening is that we are using writing instead of connectness?

Is writing, in fact, what civilization is?

Does writing make the right mind redundant?

Have we made a society of screedbots?

I could go so many directions with this, I don’t know where to begin.  At the least I have a new word for idiot, the screedbot.  Oops! There goes your ouija pusher again, Mr. Johnny!

  1. hi walt,

    the ‘screedbot’ provides a fitting definition for a King or President (they give the impression that ‘they have intent or agency of their own’ (the buck stops/starts here) as in your description of ‘robot’ and they are always delivering ‘screed’.

    where they get their programming from doesn’t really change their ‘screedbot’ status (it could be a thinktank, a wife who is psychic, a ouija board or whatever.

    hi mr ted
    bitten by a screedbot, i like that, a mechanistic, mental pathogen.
    newtons quote sums it up pretty well
    good analysis also, i’m gonna insert the link in the post.

    Newton said that his laws of mechanics only described things (orbits, dynamics in general) once they were already in place but were not capable of informing on how things gathered together in the way they did.)

    knowing how to drive a car and understanding how to build one are wholly different. Physicists know how to analyze the universe (calculus) but do not understand how it came to be.

    “A scientist challenges God to a creation-of-life competition and then, like God, picks up some dirt to start his work. “Oh no,” says God. “Go get your own dirt.”
