    The cyborg is about to die and decides to be a human being for the short time that he has left, becoming the exact opposite of everything he has been so far. I see something deeper there, a picture of a sinner who is given an opportunity to become a servant of God for the brief time that he has on this Earth, and makes use of that opportunity.

    The ending of one of the most beautiful movies ever made, Orpheu Negro from 1959. Orpheu has just plunged off the cliff to his death with the dead Eurydice in his arms and the three children are greeting the rising sun from the hilltop, representing a new beginning. The world is far below and up on the hilltop there is only the sun rising from the ocean to greet the three impoverished children. It's much like when a human being has a really powerful encounter with the living God.

    If God's power and glory manifested to infinite degree through the medium of grace then things would suddenly look very different and some people would do exactly what the Cyborg from Blade Runner did, within seconds. Some others would do something completely different. It's not that easy to tell who would be who.

    It was "I don't have to show you any stinkin' badges!"
