Humanity Is In Image
It is impossible not to anthropomorphize the human form, even when the person we see is just our own reflection. A mirror will always be a door to another room until we can rewire our perception.
We must defuse that part of our human nature that detects life and sentience where it is not before we perfect humanoid robots. Otherwise, we are in for an planetary epidemic of existential crises.
