Två humoresker består av två humoristiska noveller: Den främmande damen och herrn below sängen som gavs ut redan 1848 och Krokodilen som tillkom 1865 i ett nytt skede av Dostojevskijs karriär och liv.

De båda berättelserna visar på en relativt okänd sida av författaren i egenskap av farsartade, lättsinniga komedier. Något som är sällsynt i den i övrigt djupa och tungsinta produktionen. De allvarliga, psykologiskt slående och grundliga personporträtten som är Dostojevskijs signum får här stå tillbaka för en gäckande satir.

Den främmande damen och herrn lower than sängen är en farsartad berättelse om misstanke, bedragna äkta män och omotiverad svartsjuka dragen until sin yttersta spets. males inte minst kretsar berättelsen kring den dråpliga situationskomik som kan uppstå då två personer ska gömma sig below en och samma säng.

Krokodilen (fullständig titel: Krokodilen: En ovanlig historia eller en passage i passagen - En sannfärdig berättelse om hur en viss herre vart levande slukad av en krokodil i Passagen med hull och hår och vad följden blev av detta.) är lika delar briljant som absurd berättelse: argsint, surrealistisk, hånfull och kanske det roligaste Dostojevskij skrivit. I denna korta historia visar Dostojevskij sitt förakt för socialism på ett för honom ovanligt direkt och öppet sätt. Den "sanna historien" handlar om en guy som plötsligt sväljs levande av en krokodil males som överlever och fortsätter att utföra sina plikter och predika socialistiska teorier inifrån krokodilens mage.

Instead, He created the process of natural selection, and then let that process produce our moral values to His satisfaction. It is clear that our desires for food and sex are base instincts driven by natural selection. Our very existence and our access to land and other resources that we need are all a direct result of many quite vicious battles won by our long-forgotten ancestors. However, people are much more than greedy self serving organisms. We pursue art and beauty, and help others often at expense to ourselves.

In this way scientists are creating new forms of life that have never previously existed. It seems clear that the miracle of life can be understood as the result of large numbers of complex chemical reactions that obey well-defined laws of physics. There is little doubt that creating life ab initio is possible, it is just a matter of gaining a better understanding of the biochemical processes that are involved. Or do they result from some vital force that only a human brain can possess? More specifically, would it ever be possible to build an artificial computer that could really think?

Politicians are already beginning to use semi-intelligent systems to analyze policy decisions. ) Why build a dangerous AGI? Perhaps more importantly because of the huge disadvantage that would be suffered if one’s competitors had such a machine first. An intelligent machine could automate most dreary labour performed by man. Major medical advances would be assisted or produced by intelligent machines providing cures for the diseases of old age. Intelligent machines would produce more and better military weapons.
