“Westworld” and other shows, movies, and prose as well as the headlines speak of sex robots which will become more and more indistinguishable from real human beings. I suggest that they will become traps for dysfunctional people, and not something that threatens human reproduction as a whole.
Because I don’t think healthy relationships are difficult for healthy people to find, I consider them one of the primary maturation points for human beings. Sex robots would allow people to avoid that step. It would be like living in a world with tons of free food, and all physical work done by machines: obesity would skyrocket.
What you would have is the emotional/spiritual equivalent of that maladaption, and it wouldn’t be pretty.
What is necessary to find that real realtionship?
- Love yourself, deeply. If you do, you will be able to be attracted to some of those attracted to you–you will see yourself in them. We are attracted to people at our level of energy and integration…and above. We attract those at our level…and below.
- Develop enough power to attract and hold the level of beauty you desire. Or, the level of beauty to attract the level of power you desire. If your desires don’t match your ability to attract…see step #1.
The “how” would be techniques like Heartbeat Meditation, The Ancient Child, and the Morning Ritual. There are others out there, of course, and if you are alone, I pray you will align your body, mind, emotions, and instincts. If you are constantly attracted to people you cannot attract, this is a clue that there is work to be done.
Those who take the escape hatch of a cybernetic relationship are playing a very different game, and it is a dead end.
