Somewhere in the distant future the world is a most sophisticated place, resplendent with a rainbow of colors. In this far-off time two kinds of people live on the earth – ordinary ones, and robots that look like people. These robots are very special. They are so advanced that it is impossible to distinguish between them and the ordinary human beings. The only difference is that in the hospitals there are separate departments for ordinary people and for robots that need repair.
This is where our story begins:
In a beautiful city of the future lived a little boy and a little girl. He was an ordinary boy, and she was a robot girl.
They went to the same school and did everything together. They studied together, ate together, and played together at recess.
The thing they liked to do best was to climb up to the Observation Point at the top of the city. From there, they looked over at the high mountains and the special temple that stood atop them – a golden temple, magical and glowing, that was called the Temple of Unity.
And so, at the end of each school day, they would walk up together, along the streets and paths of the city, until they reached the soft grass of the lookout from where they would gaze at the changing hues of the sunset and the light of the heavenly Temple of Unity.
One day, the boy said, "I want you to go there with me."
"What do you mean?" the girl was astonished. "You know perfectly well that that's impossible."
"Impossible?" asked the boy. "Why?"
"Only human beings can go there, because to enter the Temple of Unity you have to be able to feel, and robots don't have any feelings."
