aka: Nature, natural stuff, life, etc.
Why would anyone want to remove living beings from our environment, and replace them with dead things? That consume vast amounts of energy? That contribute nothing (other than waste) to the environment?
Over the past few years, we have seen some quite significant changes in the global economy. Most of humanity has now come to the realization that machines are sometimes (in some respects) less efficient than nature, natural forces and organic life forms. This is not so much an argument in support of so-called “intelligent design” as it is in support of “evolutionary design”.
Many life forms evidence a great deal of intelligence — not just humans, but also humans. A human can in many respects be more efficient than a machine.
Some people seem to have forgotten that… but you still can’t fool all of the people all of the time.
