Humans have been progressing in technology as fast as time passes. Soon, in the near future, humans will be able to create machines far beyond our imagination. In time, humans would have to learn how to co-exist with robots and machines. But will robots learn how to co-exist with humans? In the poem "All Watched Over By Machines of Loving Grace" by Richard Brautigan, he shows how humans and robots can live together in harmony and peace. However, in the literary piece by Issac Asimov, He states that machines and robots would never be able to co-exist with humans and would ultimately be harmful to humans. .
In the poem by Richard Brautigan, he clearly states through his writing how humans and machines would live together in "harmony" and "peace". This is shown through the imagery and literary analogies of his writing. For example, he states in his first stanza how robots would "program" harmony in a "cybernetic ecology" He also states in his last stanza, in a cybernetic ecology", humans would be free of long hard labor they endured and humans would live in a peaceful forest where the machines would watch over them like "cybernetic guardians". He also compares computers to pure water touching the pure sky and forests with pines and electronics as if they were flowers. All of these examples in the poem show how humans would be able to coexist with humans. .
Richard Brautigan states more then just humans living with machines. He also states how humans can gain enormously from the robots. In the last stanza, He states how in a "cybernetic ecology", humans are free of their labor that they have always endured. Humans can return to the "mammal" and back to their "brothers and sisters" and once again live like humans and not worry because in a "cybernetic ecology", they are watched over by "machines of loving grace".
However, in the literary piece by Issac Asimov, he clearly states through his writing that humans and machines would never live together in harmony and peace.
