A plea to see the movie “Her”

Her is an incredibly important pic and I encourage everyone to go see it. It sets the stage for us to touch on and question our understanding of the ethics of artificial intelligence, the problem of consciousness, philosophy of mind in general, the “private mind” problem, technological ethics, and the ever present “what if we give computers consciousness” question and all the while hovering over the seemingly universal acceptance of the concepts of “free will” and “love.” Please go see it, think on it and discuss it with your friends, family & complete strangers. This movie summarizes what I believe to be the biggest question for humans today. Thanks for your consideration.

(I plan to write a proper review shortly.  Stay tuned.)
