What does every 60 year-old want for retirement? How about a 20 year-old lover and companion, who actually listens to you, believes in you and cares about you! Most spouses in retirement don't even talk to each other, and are merely roommates in the same house! This is a premium journey into where AI (artificial intelligence) is going! and this type of thing is not that far off. All of the English language and responses have already been mapped and catalogued and are microprocessor-ready. It's just a matter of time before they perfect holograms! The realization is of course, that most people...especially seniors are alone, lonely and rejected to the trash heap waiting to die. This is way beyond just 'getting a dog.' It has already been realized that humans are not supposed to spend their entire lives with the same partner, rather it is just something they are used to! As one can see this would relegate everyone to just talking to a computer, but apparently would make them a lot happier! They touched on this in 'Brainstorm' (1983), but this goes way beyond that! The film brings us to extreme food-for-thought. But in reality is a sad testament to how pathetic our interrelations with other humans actually are in total non-communication. Perhaps the future would have something worthwhile to offer after all!
