Androids to me represent mi past on the cult, the people that are programmed to don’t lie but also to don’t tell the truth. Represent all those people that sacrifice their humanity in the name of fanaticism. ComfortLife, the company that builds the androids, is like all that leaders that imprison the soul of the devote, taking from them their ability to speak their minds and take action.
The first android was created by ComfortLife in 1930 to work on all that hideous chores that take time from the humans to develop themselves as specie. The creation of these machines introduced humanity in a new era of comfort that meant the end of poverty and the social classes.
These are the first androids. They were designed to learn and to grow with their owners. Basically, they were designed to generate a soul. However, this meant a big problem for many that started to see them as a threat to their intelligence. After all the complaints, ComfortLife decided to upgrade their androids. However, this actualization only meant that they limited the capacity of the androids to talk, express feelings or thought, and do some actions, like paint or play music. This provoked that many androids take their own lives, and even when that could have destroyed the company, ComfortLife took advantage of the issue and release the Generation 2 and Generation 3 androids, the ones that everyone knows now.
These were designed to be used on the houses and the shops. Were improved to be fully controlled by their masters, but the truth was that they let the same engine, the same programming, just added more limits. The reason why is because ComfortLife still wanted that the androids adapt to the kids and their owners, growing with them but without the problems of letting them express.
These androids were designed to be used as army, police, firemen, etc. This generation is designed stronger, without a soul or capacity to feel any empathy or love. They just obey.
