Welcome Sergey,

Johnny 5 is alive because he was struck by lightning!

Now he has the spark of Life.

I have my doubts that he's actually "alive" but his anthropomorphism was learned. Stephenie humanized him too much!!! The same thing happened when Andrew jumped out the window in Bicentennial Man!!!

the "striking by lightning" is very much an homage to both frankenstein....and ADAM.....from the painting of adam and "god" where "god" endows adam with the spark of life

http://www.evolutionminute.com/00-adamgod-lg.jpg

either way , lightning has always had a place in mans heart as a bringer of life....

as far as the "technical details" ...i use the ae old "dude, it's a movie!" no real machine could possible ever withstand the abuse thta johnny five is dealt in the two movies and remain functional...But He is anthropromorphized in both films this is for certain

Interesting that the reference link to the pic of Adam and God is on a site called evolutionmate - another discussion for another board, I guess.

Anyway, ask a doctor what makes people "alive" and why we die. He won't be able to give you a straight answer. Our hearts are electric as is the rest of our nervous system, so no big surprise that lightning is a common literary source of life. Even the poster from Short Circuit is a take on Michelangelo's rendering of Adam and God. So I say whatever makes us alive is the same thing that makes Johnny Five alive - something above all the parts and electricity running through them. Our bodies are the most advanced machines ever made, but despite their regenerative powers they wear out, and somehow our "aliveness" leaves them. So a more interesting question is, "Will Johnny Five ever die?" ("of natural causes" is - of course - implied.)

The only way Johnny could die is if parts wear out and he couldn't find replacements for them. Eventually his body would wear out just like ours though it may take longer. That's one of the reasons that the robot in Bicentennial man was not granted his personhood at first. Because people could accept an immortal robot but never an immortal human. Andrew ( the robot ) had to arrange for himself to die at some point by replacing vital parts with parts that degenerate over time.

Johnny doesn't have this problem. He was legally considered a person at the end of Short Circuit 2. His lifespan is probably much greater than that of a human especially considering he can replace parts.
