Robot at Prayer

Thanks to Jeff Carter for drawing to my attention the Korean science fiction film “Doomsday Book” which apparently features a robot praying and in other ways explores the intersection of religion and science fiction.

    Praying or meditating?

    • James F. McGrath

      Praying, I believe, but obviously in a Buddhist context it could be either or both. I have not seen the movie – and even if I manage to see it, I don’t know nearly enough Korean to be able to tell whether, if the subtitles make reference to prayer, that means prayer as distinct from meditation in the Korean language.
