Soft robots? Computers creating things?

It is probably  poor choice to allow computers to be the driving force in creating new anything, primarily because of the ways that thy work, which s to say that they are usually progammed by programers who are VERY ABNORMAL people. So anything created by a computer will probaly be so foreign as to damage our logical processes a bit. We just don't need it and in all likelyhood whatever is created will be  waste of resources at best.

Change is NOT always an improvement nor is it always progress. When will people realize that fact. Just because something is new does not make it good or helpful nor does it mean that it will imrove the quality of our life.

I am by no means a Luddite, but I am aware that a lot of changes have resulted in a deterioration in the qualities of life. Sad but true. Change is not often for the better.
