      Well, I don't know if Androids/robots/etc are a good example here,
      since they're generally constructed from the start to emulate or
      approximate the human experience, especially in these cases, as opposed
      to completely alien life form with which I don't think we can
      completely identify with. However, I understand the point you're
      making, so I'll just chalk it up to over thinking things again. ;)
