About Darwin Synthor

There are books that we think are very important, but don’t read. For example, have you heard of Charles Darwin and his book “On the origin of species”? Most people I know would say yes. It is generally considered to be one of the most influential books ever written. Have you read it? Most people I know would say no. Not because they don’t read but because there are more books that are important than they can read, even if they had all the time in the world. Wikipedia lists a hundred such books, just scratching the surface.
So, how do we know what is in those books? Usually from other people who have heard from other people about what is in them. Sometimes, rather rarely, from people who have actually read one or more of them.
What if there could be a synthetic ‘person’ like this? Would we get ideas that, otherwise, we would not?
This is a SYNTHOR - A Synthetic Thought Generator.
It behaves like a whimsical and forgetful creature that knows nothing other than The Origin Of Species.
Spend some time with Darwin!
