Darn Rights! But I think we are forgetting one thing, who wrote the book? Not Scott, he made the movie, but not the characters! If Philip K. Dick were still with us we may have a verdict. <BR> <BR>Tim

Just re-reading <!-- BBCode Start --><B>Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep</B><!-- BBCode End -->..wow! Shows how the androids lack of empathy, Nexus 6 or not, is their stumbling block, and the fact the can't care for animals..and all Deckard wants is a real animal, showing he is pure human.

This is only explained in the book.

Too bad PKD passed away just before BR opened. He missed seeing the success his films garnered.

Hmm, can't obe vote for "ambiguous"? <BR> <BR><IMG SRC="/forum/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif"> <BR> <BR>Seriously, the film just left me with a big question mark on to the nature of his being. So, my vote goes for "asexual"! <IMG SRC="/forum/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif"> <BR> <BR>BUT, if I really had to choose. If I had a gun pointed at my head, I would vote for "rep", as I like that twist that would provide for the story as well as the themes it raises. <BR> <BR>Human: 20 <BR>Rep: 14 <BR> <BR>Although, if I had it my way, it would be like this: <BR> <BR>Human: 20 <BR>Rep: 13 <BR>Asexual: 1 <BR> <BR>Yes, I know the term "asexual" would not apply, but hey, I find the term amusing when applied to anything. <BR> <BR><IMG SRC="/forum/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif">
