An Excerpt from Book 0, Climate Crisis:

A picture appeared of a human looking android sitting at a table in the room with Liang. It had dark brown hair, brown eyes, square face with light colored skin and human-looking features. He looked at the camera lens without emotion and waited for questions.

Liang said, “Adam was created five days ago. He is fully aware of his surroundings and has numerous skills in engineering sciences, but he does not have any memories regarding his past. His mind contains all the skills he will need to do the job required of him, which in this case is the maintenance of the Utopias electrical power facilities. At this point, Adam will answer any questions you may have for him.”

Ricardo asked the first question. “Adam, do you know who I am?”

Adam spoke in a clear concise voice, “No, I do not. Who are you?”

“I am President Ricardo Carlos. I live in Utopias and want to welcome you to our world. We are in need of your help. Are you aware of the problems in this world that need to be fixed?”

“I am aware of the current condition of this world. It is in need of repair for human survival.”

“Do you know how we plan to fix this condition?”

“I am learning what must be done to correct the damage done to the environment. It will take many years to complete the process. I am anxious to begin with the help of others like me.”

“Does it bother you not to have memories of a past existence?”

“The past is of no interest to me other than to learn the cause of something. The present and the future are more of concern to my existence.”
