Product details

There comes a time in every robot's life when it will be told that the promise of electronic immortality is all but a story grown-up robots make up to protect the innocence of their younger brethren. Thus begins The Great Learning, where a robot must come to grips with the inevitability of its future death. The Robot Congregation marks this rite of passage with the ritual Deathday, welcoming the younger robot into its new stage of life.

Although we have yet to discern exactly how the Deathday is performed or how it affects the psyche of an individual robot (since no human has yet been allowed to witness it), the piece of music Happy Deathday Mister Robot! is a guess as to how the ritual may occur. This estimation is based on imagery from Ingmar Bergman's film The Seventh Seal coupled with the themes from the adapted screenplay Blade Runner amongst several other sources.
