autopilot failure



... I read today that a futuristic self-driving
car killed its driver, and destroyed itself,
because of auto-pilot failure

... the auto-pilot failed to detect the difference
between a hazy white sky, and a big white semi-trailer

... the rest is all in the news

... we humans often run around on auto-pilot,
we do our daily routines, almost oblivious
to what is happening around us, our minds millions
of miles away from what our bodies are actually
doing

... that's why accident occur

... that is why the best buddhists teach mindfulness

... less accidents, less mis-fortunes
