Ignorance is bliss

I liked how the characters evolved after each procedure. Sadly, these upgrades drove them apart...both changing by 180 degrees. Still not on the same page. She lives aware and he lives in bliss that he traded in for his soul.

Black Mirror!!

This story can fit perfectly into Black Mirror.
Its a very sad and disturbing play; but i can see the transfer to this Netflix series.
Be careful what you wish for; you might get it

Definitivamente imagino un futuro así

Ultimamente he leído sobre avances tecnologícos de ADN, de conectar hilos al cerebro, definitivamente creo que llegaremos a ese mundo donde tengamos que actualizarnos, como las computadoras, por enfermedades...

Me encantaron las voces de los narradores, parecía una platica real, realmente real... ¿me entienden?

Es algo corto pero vale la pena :D

Lovely listen for a Sunday Morning!

This was a thought-provoking piece of work. Where do the boundaries lie between what it is to be human, and what it is to be "enhanced"? That, as well as the nature of relationships and what are the strings that bind us, are themes that are beautifully explored here. I enjoyed the lyricism of the writing, and the dialogue felt real to me. It also has to be said that the voice artists were really well-chosen. This was a terrific performance from both the main protagonists. The flow of time and technology will open its hands and tell all. Cambridge University has recently been gifted £150 million to investigate the ethics of artificial intelligence, and Elon Musk has commented that AI is more dangerous than Nuclear weapons. We live in interesting times. Open my heart and watch it ticking and you will find it resonating with Carla's vignette. Have a listen. It will be time very well spent.

Disturbingly captivating

Is this where our world is heading.
Beautifully written every word is in the right place.
If it was a live play it would receive a long and well deserved standing ovation
Indelibly now in my memory as if it’s alway been there
