btw there's something of reflection of the "what is x" biz in "I, Robot,"
of which I only watched the first 45 min. Detective spooner says to the
mutant sentient and emoting robot, "A robot will never coimpose a symphony."
It's interesting that this should still be used as the number one trope
of man's native greatness,
 -- someone must imnagine it appeals to the public's sense of mystery,
not to speak of
a lack of interest, about what a symphony actually is.
