Why is the query of the di?erence among residing and non-living subject - tellectually so appealing to the guy of the West? the place are our goals approximately our personal skill to appreciate this di?erence and to beat it utilizing the ?rmly proven applied sciences rooted? the place are, for example, the cultural roots of the agencies coated these days via the self-discipline of Arti?cial lifestyles? Cont- plating such questions, one in every of us has famous [6] the life of the everlasting dream of the fellow of the West expressed, for instance, within the outdated testomony as follows: . . . our lord god shaped the guy from the airborne dirt and dust of the floor and breathed into his nostrils the breath of lifestyles, and the guy grew to become a dwelling being (Genesis, 2. 7). this is often the dream in regards to the workmanlike act of the construction of Adam from clay, concerning the construction of existence from anything non-living, and the con?dence within the magic energy of applied sciences. How has this dream constructed and been switched over right into a truth, and the way does it confirm our present-day actions in technological know-how and know-how? what's this con?dence rooted in? Then God acknowledged: “Let us make guy in our snapshot. . . ” (Genesis, 1. 26). guy believes in his personal skill to copy the Creator’s acts, to alter rules into genuine issues, simply because he believes he's godlike. This con?dence is – utilizing the fashionable Dawkins’ time period – might be crucial cultural meme of the West.
