We can thank our friend The Cyberdyne system T-800 Model 101 Terminator for helping us avert destruction. At least for a little while that is, because Judgement Day can never be averted, only postponed.
Much as been said about the war between the machines and the humans. There have been many documentaries, each of them telling a different version of the same events. One of the commonalities they all share however is the persistence of man. For when he is backed into a corner and all bets are off, he will do anything to prevent his own destruction. That’s something that even a Machine was able to learn. This leads us to hope that there will be a future where Judgement Day can be perpetually averted.
