The one thing I’ve taken from this novel so far is how far one will go to improve one’s status. The main character of this novel, Rick, is constantly thinking about his electric sheep and how he wish for an exotic animal to show off to his neighbors. Even while on the job he manages to go off track to look at how much an ostrich cost. Status for the people of this novel is determined mostly by animals as the more or exotic the animal appeared, the more noticeable you are among others.
Another interesting topic is the voit kmap test that was issues by Rick. A test that measures empathy is a poor attempt to tell whop is human and who is an android. As I read the questions that was issued for test, I’m think that this is how we control order in the world where if you answer the question in a way that sound almost robot-like you get sent away and I don’t even want to know what they do to the androids after that.
