Resurrecting the Dead?

This fellow named Kit Bothwell came over the other night, and wanted Warren to raise the dead. It was very disturbing. Warren explained that his Buffybot wasn't operating using the actual spirit or memories of the previous Slayer, Buffy Summers- she was just programmed to be a reasonable facsimilty. Mr. Bothwell asked if it would be possible to harness a spirit into a robotic body, and they talked about it for a while. Apparently, Mr. Bothwell was once the Watcher of a Slayer named India Cohen, and he's considering whether or not robotics would be able to 'bring her back to life'. How creepy is that?

I tried to tell Warren I didn't think it was all that good of an idea, bringing a spirit back from the afterlife (whatever that may be like) and putting it into a robotic body. Warren said he wasn't even sure that Bothwell would be able to contact the spirit (he'd said he'd been trying and failing for quite some time), so it was better to just 'cross that bridge when we come to it.'

Sometimes I'm a bit disturbed by Warren's moral ambiguity.
