Daft Punk Thought Experiments (4) - All I Ever Wanted Was A Gosh-Darned Coffee

I paused for a long time with those experiments because of WJ and other projects getting in the way, but school is about to begin again for me and some good old philosophy exercises will help me get back into the swing of things! This one features Thomas, again, and is my attempt at writing a fresh Gettier problem.

Say you are at a coffee shop, paying for your coffee. This is part of your everyday routine and you’re very much used to seeing all the goings-on in the shop; it seldom changes and it’s not often either that you see something drastically interesting, but today is a little different. As you move off to the side and wait for your coffee to go, you notice a tall sleek figure next to yourself; closer examination reveals that it’s Thomas. You however don’t know his name yet, and only register him as a robot in a coffee shop. (It is not actually important that you know his name,) You’ve never seen him before, and gaze at him for a moment in curiosity, wondering what his reasons for being in a coffee shop might be. He notices your stare, looks down in shyness, fumbles with a pendant around his neck - and drops it. “That’s a nice pendant,” you tell him as you bend down and pick it up for him.

He has a very distinctive helmet; you’re sure he’s not a unit from a mass-produced line, though it’d be rude to directly ask. He shifts around in embarrassment as he thanks you and takes the pendant. “I always wear it,” he says. “it’s special. The one who made me gave it to me.”

That’s the end of the conversation. You imagine that the coffee is for this person, or somebody else, but the important thing is that pendant makes him stand out to you, now that you’re aware of the context behind it. You receive your coffee, bid him goodbye, and leave.

"(in reference to the electroma set post) #something about this kind of #makes the scene in the film seem off now #D: #i like it a lot but it too different" I know this is a bit old, but... how so?

It’s hard to explain. Something about their bodies.
This picture makes it… feel… more substantial, weirdly so… it’s more filled out, and I can focus too much on their waist and general body shape and it’s too distracting. It makes it clear that these are actors.

Breaks the immersion is what I mean.

Ashol Pan.

13 year old Ashol Pan is one of the estimated last 250 Mongolian eagle hunters left in the world. And one of the very few women that are granted the privilege to be trained in this ancient, traditional hunting method. Golden eagles are used mainly to hunt foxes during the winter months.

This mother dove is rearing her fourth brood of young in a spot RIGHT next to my neighbour’s back door. She sat still as I walked up and took pictures.
Just look at those cuties!

A human and a robot spend years together, steeping in philosophy, adoration, ideas of mortality, and science. (Because said human and robot are also enjoyers of fine cuisine!)
