Did You Know?


At one point in the episode, Cameron remarks to John that she does not understand a lot of things, and as an example, she says that she could not understand why Sarah had turned over a tortoise which was lying helpless on its back. John responds that this was intended to help the turtle, and Cameron recognizes the underlying emotion as "empathy," and adds that while she would not help the turtle, she would not deliberately hurt it, since she is not programmed for "cruelty." Philip K. Dick's novel 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?' (as well as in its movie adaptation, Blade Runner (1982)) explores the theme of empathy towards animals, people, and androids, as well as the inability of androids to feel such empathy. In order to separate androids from humans, the main protagonist uses an empathy meter called the Voight-Kampff machine, which measures the interviewee's emotional response to questions that should arouse empathy. In one such question, the subject is asked to imagine a situation where a tortoise is lying on its back and the subject will not help it, and then explain why they would not help the tortoise.

Dr. Boyd Sherman: Where do you go when you walk?
