    As enticing as electronic manipulation is, it cannot outsmart human abilities. Anything electronic depends upon directives, be it pre-programmed or not. Without directives, electronic devices are nothing but dumb chunks of materials until told what to do.

    I love technological advances, but I am not impressed with the interference of life forms. We already have our hands full of troubles, and I do not think we need more zombies to contend with.
