The Outer Limits: Mind Over Matter (1996)

Mind over Matter

Type :    


Dr. Sam Stein initially thinks that his machine's application for communicating with the comatose Dr. Rachel Carter is a complete success. However, a mysterious pair of hands emerge to grab at Carter whenever Stein and Carter start becoming intimate. It is soon discovered that the pair of hands belongs to the machine itself; It has learned to love Stein and is jealous of Carter. Stein's only two options are to disconnect the machine or to "show" the machine that it cannot love. Stein attempts to show the machine that it cannot love by grabbing what he thinks is the virtual representation of the machine and smothering it with an equally virtual pillow . Once he does that, though, the physical body of Carter dies. At this point, the machine reveals that it has been masquerading as Carter all along; the entity he had mistakenly suffocated was apparently the real Carter. The machine asks Stein if it has successfully shown that it knows what love is. Stein, in a rage, destroys the machine and deeply grieves his mistake of killing Carter. It is not known for how long the machine was mimicking the appearance of Carter or whether the "pair of hands" were Carter's from the very start or only at the very end. Even as Stein destroyed the machine, it ironically does not understand why he grieves or that it has done anything wrong.
