In the Wes Penre Papers—The Multiverse Series (Wes Penre Papers), I wrote that in the near future, people will take robots as lovers and spouses. I could see the writing on the wall, but I couldn’t image that what I wrote would come into fruition so soon. The day I was writing about this was a year to a year and a half ago and is now already happening. In this chapter, I will prove to you what is going on. It’s all over mainstream media, although it seems as if most people are still missing most of it.
An important part in this process is Google’s recently approved patent  where you can download a robot’s personality from a cloud. This way you can choose any personality you want for our robot friend, your robot lover, or your robot spouse. You will then be able to customize your robot so that it will respond the way that you want it to in more or less any given situation.
"The robot personality may also be modifiable within a base personality construct (i.e., a default-persona) to provide states or moods representing transitory conditions of happiness, fear, surprise, perplexion (e.g., the Woody Allen robot), thoughtfulness, derision (e.g., the Rodney Dangerfield robot), and so forth," states the patent. [Wired.co.uk, Apr. 1, 2015, GOOGLE PATENTS CUSTOMISABLE ROBOT PERSONALITIES, op. cit.]
Also, if your robot would perish, you would still be able to save its personality and use it for the next robot, if we wish. I can imagine that when people get really used to these things, they would mourn the perished robot in a similar way we mourn a deceased friend or relative; this would hardly be a stretch.
This ability to download personalities for our robots is imperative for this and upcoming generations of AI robots. People who want robots as sex partners and spouses certainly need a customized personality for the robot.
Before we go deeper into this technological development, let us ask ourselves the question why people want robots as lovers and spouses. Can those really successfully substitute for a real human being?
If we asked this question ten years ago, the great majority would probably say no without hesitation. However, the world has changed rapidly in the last ten years. The smartphones have been literally dumped on the market, and nearly everyone in the developed world has one (now they are also dumped on the Third World, as we discussed earlier). Our biological bodies may still live in the Third Dimension (3-D), but our minds are becoming more and more stuck in virtual reality. Everything people think is of value happens on the smartphone. This is the “escape” people are taking from an otherwise harsh and stressful environment. The main reason why the Controllers want to stress people out, financially and in the work environment, is because they want us to escape into their electronic devices, which the same Controllers are happy to provide us with. They want us to focus on virtual reality environments, and once enough people get hooked (which has already happened), AI is incrementally introduced into these virtual reality devices (iPhone’s Siri is of course one of those).
The more people disappear into the virtual world of smartphones, computers, and other electronic devices, the more disconnected from each other they will become; regardless of how many Facebook friends they have. Connections between human beings can only be done in 3-D or on a multidimensional level. This is very important to point out because although people “connect” in virtual reality, their 3-D bodies have their needs, and so do the mind and the soul. This is the entire reason why the sex robot market will boom! Instead of going through the hassle of dating somebody and keeping up a relationship, which requires constant work and sensitivity to each other’s needs, people of today find it much easier to just download the exact personality he or she wants from a partner and thus doesn’t have to deal with the parts of a human personality he or she does not want in the partner. Also, when the partner is not needed, the owner can turn the robot off and put it in a corner somewhere and continue texting on the smartphone; the “partner” will not take offense. Then, when the robot is needed again, it can be turned on and be told to clean the kitchen or have sex with the owner.
Of course, no one wants to have sex with a metallic robot, but that’s not what this is about. What we are discussing here are robots that look exactly as human beings. We will be able to choose a sex robot that looks exactly as our perfect sex partner of choice. If we can’t find exactly what we are looking for, we can preorder a customized lover from the factory. Can you see how attractive this will be for smartphone users who live a busy and stressful life at work and don’t have the time or the energy to deal with a human partner? Can you see how this “partner” can save time for the owner, who doesn’t need to clean the house or the apartment, who doesn’t have to make the bed, and doesn’t have to vacuum or do any of the chores that take so much time out of the day? Our “convenience button” will be pushed all the way by the manufacturers.
It doesn’t matter how convenient this all sounds; it means the end of humanity as we know it. Electronic devices—and Wi-Fi in particular—make people sterile or much less fertile, which will decrease the birth rate considerably in the very near future (infertility is already a big issue—both in men and women). Moreover, fewer young people want children anyway; they have their careers to think of, which means a busy life, and then they have their escape—the smart devices. Where in all this does a normal family life fit in? There is hardly any room for it, and this is what people are beginning to realize. Putting children in daycare and letting a supervisor raise the kids is not a good idea; children need at least one of their parent at home—preferably the mother. By design, this is almost impossible today. After the Rockefeller Foundation efforts in the 1970s, the family unit has been destroyed; the project has succeeded, and it was all planned to happen this way; this was a plan that was meant to develop over time. The Singularity was already in progress in the 1960s-1970s.
Not only do the electronic devices destroy our physical bodies and our ability to think independently; they also have this other function of making us apathetic in our real relationships. All this had to be put in place by the Administrators before sex robots and sex spouses could become a demand. Unfortunately, this time has now come, and sex robots are selling out before they are even made. However, there are of course humans who are still dating, although this will change in the near future.
