Amongst many other aspects of the series, I’ve been fascinated with ‘Westworld’ and its approach to consciousness.
What is it?
What does it mean once it’s true, but happens to be inside a synthetic structure, that looks uncannily like a human?
Rewatching ‘Ghost in the Shell’ recently, I was struck by how similar the robot creation sequences are. Clearly Nolan/Joy were inspired by it, along with many other films, tv shows, music and video games.
I thought it would be fun to cut together some of the similar scenes of the technical aspects of making a ‘robot’ and also elude to the sentience within them that comes alive in the process.
I hope you enjoy ;-)
