This video music mix I did is dedicated to my favorite Novel (and actors who both passed away this November 2016) The book made the best sellers list & Movie by Dean Koontz called “DEMON SEED” Story: A Computer Genius Dr. Harris played by (Fritz Weaver) developed Proteus IV. An extremely advanced and autonomous artificial intelligence program funded by the government, who built a super computer with an organic brain. And gave it 10 stores deep under ground from the facility where they worked unlimited power & resources. Sound familiar? (Cyberdyne Systems from the Movie “TERMINATOR” But this Novel & movie were years before it. What makes this story so outstanding is that his passion to build this unholy artificial brain became an obsession because of his young daughter dying of leukemia. His way of coping with her death…and making sure no one else has to endure what initially separated him and his wife. Once activated and self-aware Proteus IV came up with a cure in a few days, but then it turned on mankind..and then things took a bazaar and frightening turn. You will have to watch or read the Book, but I did include actual dialog sound clips of Proteus IV (by Robert Vaughn) from the movie (in my mix) so check it out and enjoy.
Track listing I mixed in order:
(1) Volsoc – Easy Edit
(2) “Demon Seed” / Movie (Sound Clips)
A Hitchcock mashup where Kubrick is the villain.

We live in a world of great and increasing complexity, where even the most expert professionals struggle to master the tasks they face. Longer training, more advanced technologies: neither seems to prevent grievous errors. There is a remedy in the most humble and simple of all techniques: the checklist. We can identify successful people in many fields who turn to checklists to pull off some of the most difficult tasks, and places where the impact of the checklist is huge: -in the complex world of surgery, a simple ninety second checklist has cut the rate of fatalities by a third -a cleanliness checklist in intensive care units that has virtually eliminated a type of deadly hospital infection -a restaurant where checklists allow a kitchen and dining room to run like a finely tuned symphony Aside from the great successes there is an inevitable resistance to accepting the discipline of a checklist-a tension between the autonomy experts want and the sense of discipline success actually requires.
