And the LORD God commanded the man, saying,
Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat;
But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it:
for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
— Genesis, 2:16–17
Roy Batty, android: It’s not an easy thing to meet your Maker.
Eldon Tyrell, creator of androids: What can He do for you?
Batty: Can the Maker repair what He makes?
Tyrell: What seems to be the problem?
— Blade Runner, directed by Ridley Scott, 1982
