Chapter II: Understanding everyone's place in this world; hypothetically speaking…
Eldon Tyrell endeavored to create a machine "more human than human." Well studied and a student of philosophy, Tyrell may have become enamored with Christian mythology regarding the attributes of the spirit as components of the soul. I'm not suggesting Tyrell is religious, only that he finds it philosophically constructive as the basis of a working model.
<Galatians 5:19-21King James Version (KJV)
<19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
<20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
<21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
>Galatians 5:22-23King James Version (KJV)
>22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
>23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
In 2019, the Nexus 6 is the current generation replicant in mass production for off-world use. "The designers reckoned after a few years, they might develop their own emotional responses. You know, hate, love, fear, anger, envy. So they built in a fail-safe device." That fail-safe being a four-year lifespan.
Tyrell's plan is to introduce memories to provide the replicants with a baseline for processing emotion. The new model replicant should also be able to pass for a close approximation of a human by believing it is human, unless otherwise informed, allowing recently initialized Nexus 7's to appear as at least as emotionally complex or even more convincing than Nexus 6's which have taken years to develop natural emotional responses beyond their programmed responses.
