You have not a friend.

A robot for companionship - the networked reality companion.

For the washed away by contemporary life, detached from how they feel inside and
the reality outside.

Your networked reality companion reads,
by implant, your physiological lifestyle patterns. It knows you through this identity. Your physical state and wellbeing. Something you may desire to shape (be it with meditation, yoga to sport) but the outside world will
always influence.

The Robot, your friend, will ask you - how you are? Something you've heard time and time again. But it wants to know. In return, it will let you identify with it, by telling you how it feels.

It can tell you how it feels, by giving the response of someone else using the system. Someone else who relates to your physiological pattern and matchs your physiological lifestyle.

The Robot is just the medium. But, by having the dialogue with you, a companion.

And, it needs you. Stop telling it how you are, it can't tell others. It's algorithm corrupts (the network, it's existence) . By neglecting your companion, it has no need for you. No need ask how you are or
to tell you how it is.
