The Voight-Kampff Test
– You’re in a desert, walking along in the sand, when all of a sudden you look down…
– But how come I’d be there?
– Maybe you’re fed up, maybe you… want to be by yourself. Who knows?
– You look down and you see a tortoise, Leon. You reach down and you flip the tortoise over on its back, Leon. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun…
…beating its legs, trying to turnitself over, but it can’t.
Not without your help. But you’re not helping.
Why is that, Leon?
(It’s a test designed to provoke an emotional response.)
