Oh, shit yeah il mio amico. In stories like Alien, Eternal Sunshine, Gattaca, 12 Monkeys etc, the writers are dealing with the effect some kind of advanced technology has on people. The imagined tech is a significant driver of the plot. That's what science fiction is.

It appears to me that you've been having a love affair with sci-fi for years - nay, aeons - and you haven't even realised it until today, this glorious day.
