A Psalm for the Wild-Built – Becky Chambers


Mae canrifoedd ers i robotiaid Panga ennill hunanymwybyddiaeth; canrifoedd ers iddynt grwydro i’r anialwch, byth i’w gweld eto; canrifoedd ers iddynt diflannu i chwedlau.

Un diwrnod, mae bywyd mynach yn cael ei drechu? gan ddyfodiad robot. Ni all y robot fynd yn ôl nes y bydd y cwestiwn ‘beth sydd ei angen ar bobl?’ yn cael ei ateb.

Ond mae ateb y cwestiwn yn dibynnu ar bwy rydych chi’n ei ofyn a sut. Bydd angen iddyn nhw ofyn llawer o bobl.

It’s been centuries since the robots of Panga gained self-awareness and laid down their tools; centuries since they wandered, en masse, into the wilderness, never to be seen again; centuries since they faded into myth and urban legend. One day, the life of a tea monk is upended by the arrival of a robot, there to honour the old promise of checking in. The robot cannot go back until the question of ‘what do people need?’ is answered.

But the answer to that question depends on who you ask, and how. They’re going to need to ask it a lot.
