Letter: Ending consciousness is murder

May 5, 2013 

No matter what anyone says ending a consciousness is murder. And to skeptics of whether or not a robot would feel, notice that if you question at all with your mind you do in fact experience emotion. Questioning is not the only undergoing that consciousness does, but it is an easy example for one to understand that you cannot have a consciousness without having emotion.
