Nihilistic stoner philosophy thought of the day. Perhaps our universe is indeed a computer or information processing system that's just booted up and seeded its system with a set of energy which does stuff for a few hundred billion years before settling down into either black holes or empty space to then be used for whatever processing. With things like life just interesting patterns that arise from this set of variable start conditions.

Of course, when robots do eventually take over the world, they'll have emotion circuits and preprogrammed reflexes to deal with potential threats. It won't be a purely logical argument.

Ironically, it appears that Orange Bot is engaging in the Ad Hominem in the final panel, and Blue Bot has engaged all prior arguments and is now introducing a new argument that Orange Bot is malfunctioning based on the parade of dumbass arguments.
