He thinks there is something in biology about living systems that we simply don’t understand. Something really big. He terms this missing thing as “the juice” and he demonstrates it by talking about the difference between a robot trapped in a box who methodically goes through a series of steps to escape, versus an animal that very desperately wants to free itself. Robots, in his view, lack passion for anything, and that passion (the juice) is vitally important and meaningful. Brooks, by the way, is convinced it is purely mathematical, and categorically rejects the notion that “the juice” is some attribute beyond normal physics. What do you think “the juice” is, and can a machine ever get it?
