Excerpt

Helena
Tak dál.

Domin
Dál? Teď šlo o to, dostat život ze zkumavky ven a zrychlit vývoj a utvořit nějaké ty orgány, kosti a nervy a kdesi cosi a nalézt jakési takové látky, katalyzátory, enzymy, hormóny a tak dále, zkrátka, rozumíte tomu?

Helena
N - n - nevím. Myslím, že jen málo.

Domin
Já docela nic. Víte, pomocí těch vodiček mohl dělat, co chtěl. Mohl třeba dostat medúzu se sokratovským mozkem nebo žížalu padesát metrů dlouhou. Ale protože neměl kousku humoru, vzal si do hlavy, že udělá normálního obratlovce nebo snad člověka. A tak se do toho pustil.

Helena
Do čeho?

Domin
Do napodobení přírody. Nejdřív zkusil udělat umělého psa. Stálo ho to řadu let, vyšlo z toho cosi jako zakrnělé tele a pošlo to za pár dní. Ukážu vám to v muzeu. A pak už se dal starý Rossum do vytváření člověka.

(Pauza)

Helena
A to nesmím nikomu prozradit?

Domin
Nikomu na světě.

The first time anyone used the word "Robot" is here. We have Karel and Josef Capek to thank for the term!
