​Fungus Lamp

This lamp realizes non-linear function control. You cannot control which holes the light will shine from. This is similar to the experience of touching an anemone. But what we can think about is when an object has a certain degree of autonomous consciousness, or when it becomes a carrier of human consciousness. We use and discard it at will. Will such behavior bring about ethical contradictions? There are traces of such problems. During the Civil War, the manor owners in the South did not think that blacks were humans like them. Therefore, when they take excessive corporal punishment on blacks, they will not move their hearts in sympathy. They turn blacks into an effective tool for creating profits. Such recognition is of course absurd from the current perspective. So in the future, do we also need to accept new forms of human or intelligent consciousness and modify our ethics?
