Human heart in machines @Sci-fi

I quickly opened Kingsoft Office and write this while I was almost crying of unexpected thing. I was reading a novel, ‘CtG (Cradle to the Glaive)’, it’s about boy and girl who married in game have a child given by the system. I was realizing the child can understand ‘family’, when I just reached in the middle of first chapter of the first volume. The child makes two exact copy of origami her father made but bigger, and a mushroom-like origami. Before she does that, she thought the origami made by her father is herself. Now there are a little Yokko 1, two bigger Yokkos, and a mushroom-like origami. After thought for awhile, I realized that the little one is the child, the bigger ones are the parent, and a mushroom-like one is a NPC (looks like) which take care of the child if her parent are offline. (Sorry for the spoiler)
I had interest to human-like nonhuman recently :3 I mean robot or such which has human-like appearance and attitudes. This similar case can be found in popular animations, like Sword Art Online and Log Horizon. For recent animations there are Plastic Memories (artificial heart) and Dimension W (imagine robot and human melt into one: artificial heart, organs, and even blood cells).
Sci-fi surely is interesting.
The second case, the child is very angry to the robber who bother her most waited time to play with her parent and attacks him with knives her father gave (inside game certainly). This case has negative side too (in the chapter one’s ending).
I won’t give much spoilers for the sake of peoples who haven’t read this. Baka-Tsuki has its English translation.

Iris in Rainy Days, a good novel I recommend about human-like robot.


 

  1. It’s written as 奴(やっこ) or Yakko, it is the name/title for servant of Samurai family from Edo period. (BakaTsuki )

What should I know to be a good Parent?

I began to give this matter a thought while I was reading the second chapter of the first volume of CtG novel where the father, Yuu thought about proper parent. Although I haven’t any intention to marry somebody, I still wanted to adopt a child. Every time I thought about this matter, the first thing comes up to my mind is how to give him/her a proper education. The education I mean here is wide, not limited to cognitive and non-cognitive, but everything the child would need in the future. I also made myself a subject of my observation to the psychological affects education. But I started to realize there are a few things that seems to be forgotten by this me. I would take some time to understand these, but for certain money isn’t one of them.

Jadi seperti inikah rasanya menjadi tamu tidak berpengetahuan

Ini bukan pertama kali saya menjadi tamu, namun kali ini menjadi suatu pengalaman. Setiap saya bertamu (mungkin lebih tepat disebut berkunjung) biasanya saya tidak sendirian (sendiri maupun bersama tidak jauh berbeda). Pada kesempatan ini saya merasa bingung tingkat tinggi karena saya yang tidak berpengetahuan cara mengisi kesunyian.
Setelah menyelesaikan urusan (berhubungan dengan pekerjaan rumah), saya menikmati teh hangat yang disediakan ibu dari teman sekelas perempuan (“Terima kasih, saya suka teh”). Catatan kecil, saya tidak tertarik dengan kehidupan romantis (baca: percintaan) di dunia nyata dan saya tidak mengkhawatirkan keanehan diri saya ini. Sebenarnya saya tidak peduli dengan kesunyian (keheningan) karena selalu ada yang saya pikirkan untuk mengisinya. Namun, saya rasa tidak semua orang nyaman dengan situasi seperti ini. Jadi, saya pun bingung sendiri memikirkan apa yang diminati orang di sebelah saya. Untuk menghilangkan stres di saat itu juga, saya teringat pelajaran fisika tentang titik berat. Melihat langit-langit ruang tamunya yang indah, saya membayangkan bagaimana kayu-kayu disusun sehingga dapat mempertahankan langit-langit tersebut sekaligus atap pada keadaannya saat ini, diikuti gerakan-gerakan jari telunjuk. Saya ignorant (acuh, tak perhatian). Saya pun memutuskan untuk pergi setelah keheningan sekitar lima menit (mungkin).
Dalam perjalanan saya masih membayangkan susunan kayu yang telah saya sebut di atas.
