That being said, he was not a human being, but rather identical. This is because being human is about being imperfect, having the ability to make mistakes and learn from them. At the beginning of the movie Andrew was robot in it’s fullness, because he was always perfect and made no mistakes. In his early stages, Andrew tries to add human-like features to his body, such as a Central Nervous System, skin, and working organs, thinking that those were the only things that separated him from becoming a human. The first time Andrew approaches the court in an attempt to gain the approval to become a human, his argument is that he may be a robot in the brain, but is human everywhere else.

To close I just want to say that my privacy mean the world to me and to lose that would basically change everything about who I am and the way I act. Personalities would all be different. People would feel that they have nothing for themselves.
For example not to harm or bother things that don’t bother us, respect someone’s privacy, refusing to do something for someone’s good.

While I do not think that decision made by the doctor was ethically and morally permissible for Dax’s autonomy, the fact of the matter is that he is still alive and could continue living his life. .

Instead of trying to understand why Dax was acting the way he was, the doctors instead insisted that he was acting like a child and was unable to make the decision for himself.
The film is based on an invented man named Edward who was left unfinished and isolated. Identity is a quality which requires an individual to go through an internal struggle and be able to balance between keeping their own personality and still be able to belong, resulting in conformity. This was demonstrated through the use of a long shot of Edward’s costume contrasting with the environment around him. The long shot establishes Edward’s dark apparel juxtaposed with the brightly coloured house, reinforcing his alienation in the community. However, Peg offers him ‘normal’ clothes to create a new identity allowing him to gain a sense of belonging in his environment.
