      Dear Robert -

      From your question, I think you would find "The Age of Spiritual
      Machines" by Ray Kurzweil a stimulating book. In it, Kurzweil goes
      far beyond simple questions like "good and evil", developing his
      theme of intelligences that may well be the next evolutionary step
      beyond human.

      You might also be interested in the sound clips from the symposium
      held at Stanford earlier this year on the topic, "Will Spiritual
      Robots Replace Humanity by 2100?" You can listen to them on the web at
      http://www.stanford.edu/dept/symbol/Hofstadter-event.html

      Enjoy!

      Toni Thompson
