You can have your fanart featured in the sidebar of the subreddit (desktop mode only). All you have to do is submit your fanart in a seperate post, flair it as fanart and comment that you made it. If we like it enough, it might be on the subreddit sidebar for two weeks (until the next discussion thread). You automatically opt in when submitting your fanart here. All works will be credited on the sidebar beneath the image. Do not worry if you do not want it featured, as we will let you know ahead of time if we are interested on making it the sidebar image.

Read:  For the first time ever, I felt like replaying a game right after finishing it, so I did.


Our current topic is: The Difference between Humans and Machines

Detroit: Become Human shows (as the game title indicates) how machines try to become human. But it also mentions how humans try to influence their bodies with the help of machines. The article "The First Immortals Are Among Us" states:

"CyberLife has developed a 'nano-android', capable of entering a patient's body and programmed to combat cancer cells, boost the immune system, or reverse genetic disease. In a recent clinical trial, millions of these tiny machines were used to attack cancerous cells. Once the cancer was eradicated, the nano-droid were passed through the patient's urine."

Based on the assumption that this development will probably evolve and could be combined with advanced prosthetic devices: When will deviant androids and humans start to be alike? When could humans be considered machine-like and androids be considered human-like? Which characteristics define an individual (human or machine) as "human"? Please share your thoughts about this topic.

To Jericho, deviants!
