The Invincible

The Invincible

"The Invincible" is a tailor-made screenplay for a great battle film telling the story of the clash of Earthly Astronauts with a spontaneously created population of microautomata destroying all intelligence. But it is mechanical devices – also those created by man – that are programmed for a reflexive fight until self destruction.  Only beings that reason can understand the strangeness and free themselves from the fatalism of destruction.

new scientist about summa technologiae
