How is it that it’s so hard to communicate with one another face to face yet we can carry a twenty-four-hour conversation on our devices? Is it because we shy away from our true selves and express our alter egos; which is a terrible habit that may become uncontrollable impulse. Or does the person simply lack proper social skills. In the romance/drama HER created by Spike Joneze, He focuses on the two main characters, Theodore Twombly and Samantha. Theodore: is a hard worker at his occupation is to write letters.

In addition, when a human imagines a machine having a “personality” and withhold doubt it’s just a machine.

We as human will soon overlook the idea and meaning of the words: bizarre and taboo as if they were foreign words we should not speak of. Overall time and technology waits for no one.
