    vic didn't really develop an inerest in economics, doing the books was part of his programming

    my question is, is the desire to grow a true unique desire, or is it programmed into them, is there a line of code that tells them to desire to grow beyond their initial programming

    She seems "so fickle" because she was poorly written, thus inconsistent and ill-defined.

    A rather philosophical question! I mean, ultimately how do you know anyone is truly sentient and not just a clever simulation?

    The Doctor certainly passes the Turing test. And, well, you can probably change a human's personality or eliminate their ability to sing if you zapped the right part of the brain.

    absolutely, people with brain injuries sometimes loose abilities depending on the part of the brain that was affected
