Philosophy Wire: Manual transmission? But why?

Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2015-07-23]: A BBC article wanders why some drivers choose manual transmission in their cars even though the automatic ones have been proved better. [1] It reminds me of the iRobot movie where Will Smith drove his car manually to the dismay of his woman friend who wandered why he did not trust the automatic car… The darkness is coming… In a few years computers will decide where we want to go as well… Automatic transmission. Automatic cars. Automatic life. What is automatic is unconscious. Walking, breathing, thinking… Are they meaningful if you do not even understand you are doing them? Start choosing everything if you wish to live. Consciously.
