A Conversation for Androids

we machines

technically we are all "machines". just that we are made of soft squishy flesh, [hafta breathe, eat, produce waste, sleep, etc]
while an "android" is defined by it's appearances in sci-fi novels and movies: humanoid, made of plastic, steel and computer chips, tend to be much more efficient at everything.
look up refs on universal turing machines [made up of simple turing machines or "computers", can theoretically emulate anything] and see how closely related we are to these theoretical androids. also realize with a highly efficient computer brain, these constructs would be incredibly powerful and intelligent.
