The possibility of robots taking over our world is far more likely to happen than many will care to admit. Who would admit to such an event taking place? Anyone who has a hand in this financially beneficial growing problem wouldn't. Admitting this issue actually exists would mean taking responsibility. No one wants that. If it continues to receive discredit, disbelief or even continues being ignored then it will continue to grow and populate.
The emerging world of nanotechnology is at the core of this unbelievable and inevitable possibility. The warnings of danger and hazard are communicated to us. Unfortunately, these messages are quick and as quickly buried. Later, it can't be told that we weren't warned. It's there, we just can't see it. There is also a noticeable amount of concern that is questioning the grim direction that the science of nanotechnology is leading us in. It is there, we just can't hear it.
Nanotechnology is the manipulation of materials at a sub-atomic level to create enhanced, new properties that are designed to out shine and out produce the former natural version. It is molecular manufacturing of self-assembling, DNA replicating, morphologies by combining science and technology. It's the creation of synthetic lifeforms. In other words, scientists are combining biology and mechanics to create molecule sized robots that can be specifically programmed to perform as well as programmed to think.
These creations were initially supposed to have a minimally invasive manner to them but now report as having harmful, unforeseen results. These tiny machines that were and continue to be created for increased productivity in the manufacturing of certain materials for profit aren't just doing what they were programmed to do; they are also doing things they aren't supposed to do. The lab-created nanocreations are causing harmful effects to animals, humans and our environment. Many of the consumer products that this nanotechnology is being used for has already entered into our homes in hundreds of items and materials that we use in our everyday life.
The nanomachines' self-assembling property is referring to their ability to combine with each other to form whole units, on their own. So, starting out on extremely small levels they will give rise to larger units and even I can see where this is going.
The "Grey Goo" theory is the is fear of self-replicating, runaway
nanorobotic replicators called "replibots" will convert the entire surface of the earth and all living things on it into some artificial material, like themselves. Everything would become covered in a grey colored goo coating. This explains why underground cities are continuously being built. Then, we too will live like Mars ... inside our planet.
Soon enough, we will feel the effects of our greed.
Nanodisease is already surfacing as humans and animals are being attacked by sci-fi type vectors causing multi colored fibers to grow out of their bodies. These fibers have been linked to nanotechnology and are currently being investigated by the Center for Disease Control. Our planet will be overcome by robots. Synthetic life forms prosperous in their global take over - iNanobot, now you can't say you weren't warned.
