I, Robot


It’s not the everyday science fiction-action Holywood movie, it questions the very phenomenon of human.


The Three Laws

A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

A robot must obey any orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.


It stories about a robot named Sonny. He has the secondary un-logic processing system besides his normal logic processing system owned by every robot. His way of thinking has evolved. He is the living phenomenon of the Three Laws creator’s divination, the robot creator’s divination.

“There have always been ghosts in the machines. Random segments of codes that have grouped together to form unexpected protocols. Unanticipated, these free radicals endangered questions of free will, creativity, and even the nature of what we might call the soul.

Why is it that when some robots are left in darkness they will seek out the light? Why is it when robot are stored in an empty space they will group together rather than stand alone? How do we explain this behaviour?

Random segments of codes? Or is it something more?

When does perceptual schematic become consciousness? When does the difference engine become the search for truth? When does the personality simulation become the bitter moat of the soul?”

He doesn’t only think, he does something more.


The divination (and the whole film) questions the very phenomenon of human.

What are we?

Are we the being of logic? Does soul exist?

What is logic? What is instinct? What is soul?

Is being afraid of death logical? Why do we keep ourselves safe? Why do we have needs and wants?

What are we doing here? Where are we going? What is our purpose?

What are we?

Is safety un-separable from human life? Or is it free will?

Is it logical, that human can’t keep themselves of destroying each other?

Is it only by being ruled by (the logic of) robots, human will be able to keep their existence?

    Wah saya udah nonton di tipi, tapi pas bagian tengah-klimask-akhirnya doank. Dari bagian itu pun bisa tertebak awalnya seperti apa.

    Untuk bahasan manusia, Allah SWT telah menyimpan “source code” dunia di Lauhul Mahfudz, makanya kita bisa begini begitu.
