The small sprout is growing without any sunlight or the help of humans or robots. Nature can flourish without humans because they pollute the world with trash. In “There Will Come Soft Rains”, the robotic house reads a poem by Sara Teasdale. “Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree, if mankind perished utterly;/ And Spring herself…. / would scarcely know that we were gone” (Bradbury 171).
Humans have become oblivious to the things going on around them, they only see the advertisements in the ship and are not even aware of the human in the chair next to them. People aboard the Axiom have become completely dependent on technology. Robots now do all the labor so humans can sit in their hover-chairs all day and not be required to move. They are lazy and obese since the ship has the latest gadgets to make life easier including robots that can do everything for them. Humans are babied by robots, robots pick them up when they fall, clean up after them, change them, humans don’t even eat solid foods, everything they ingest is in drink
They are creating,” ninety- six identical twin working ninety six identical machines!” (Pg7) This means everyone will look alike to do the same thing. There is no diversity; robots are what they are creating. The one upside to this is there will be nobody to make fun of every one looks alike how can there be anything to make fun of. “If we could bokanovskify indefinitely the whole problem would be solved.” (Pg7) If there is no diversity how can people change? When the people in this society leave no chance for change they stop all chance of growth.
Ray's short story and Sara's poem are very similar and different in many ways. In lines 11 - 12 of the poem, it states " Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree If mankind perished utterly" and in the short story it contains lines 73-74 that state " The dog frothed at the mouth, lying at the door, sniffing, its eyes turned to fire. It ran wildly in circles, biting its tail, spun in a frenzy, and died." Both the short story and poem are talking about something not caring about anything or what is happening in the world right that instance. The house is equipped with lots of technology, but the house still fails to realize that the dog is in pain and that it is dying.
The Turing Test v2 In both “There Will Come Soft Rains” by Ray Bradbury and Wall-E by Pixar, both nature, and technology possesses the capacity to experience human emotions. After the humans had been eradicated in “T.W.C.S.R,” the house “realized that… only silence was [there],” yet kept on “repeating and repeating its sounds into emptiness” (Bradbury 169-170). On the other hand, nature causes a fire that “in ten billion angry sparks moved with flaming ease from room to room” (Bradbury 172). The house demonstrates its longing and nostalgia for its masters and attempts to deny their absence by repeating its assigned functions. However, the fire holds a deep resentment and hatred for the technology and humans because they cause much destruction
This quote shows the self absorption, and selfishness of mankind. To have an entire race of people wiped out, and not a single other organism would even care. None of them would care because now their trees aren't being cut down to build factories, their lakes and ponds aren't being drained to build shopping malls, the animals are no longer being experimented on to find the hottest new perfume
Yet nature lives on in a mechanical form. Mechanical mice scurry about the house. The closest thing to soft rains that fall are the mechanical rains of the sprinkler system that goes off when the house catches fire. The poem, which seems pessimistic, is actually very optimistic compared to the reality. In this penultimate story, Bradbury shows his final example of the folly of thoughtless technological development.
This allows someone who can identify one knight to be able to identify all the knights. In the novel, Twain presents this unifying standard between the armored knights as being slow minded and failing to think for oneself or thick cleverly. Since the very first time that Hank is around the knights, he notes that “There did not seem to be brains enough in the entire nursery, so to speak, to bait a fish-hook with; but you didn't seem to mind that, after a little, because you soon saw that brains were not needed in a society like that” (22). Twain adds this quotation to exploit the idea that since a monarch government lacks a variety of representation, the government hierarchy such are a unified group all simple minded and do not have to think for themselves. Twain illustrates the inefficiency of the knights’ unified thoughts and actions in Hank’s jousting matches.
Rick Deckard´s job is to retire six Nexus-6 androids, which is the most advanced type who is very alike us human, in only 24 hours.

Yet with this, we learn that no one can outsmart Big Brother. In most stories and movies the characters find a way to escape and that's what us readers assume is going to happen. Yet the point of Winston not succeeding, was to teach the lesson that some governments are unbeatable. They are always a step ahead and there's no catching up; only more destruction to something that was so wonderful. When the government captures Winston, his precious paperweight shatters.
