This may sound a little crazy but I've seen too many things happen in my lifetime after we dreamed of them. Ron Moore and David Eick may not even realize how prophetic their stories are. But they are. And these things will happen if we continue to progress as we are doing now
Sometimes things seem prophetic when they restate our understanding of the past. Human nature is constant, although societies seem to rise and fall by various measures, including morally. This seems to be the overarching moral of the new BSG/Caprica universe.
More specifically, the original BSG was an allegorical retelling of the Mormon Handcart Trek to Utah under Brigham Young before the American Civil War. Few non-Mormons know this. Whether conscious of this or not, Moore and Eick have developed a theology even more Mormon than shown in the original.
I think that is why it is good to have good writting in our fictional stories. I suppose anything is possible and to let your mind think that is good so a problem can be worked on. I know it sounds crazy.
I'm LDS, and I can attest to this. The BSG/Caprica mythology is fraught with LDS themes including: The pride/destruction cycle and the (All this has happened before, and will happen again) The eternity of intelligence Physical bodies are a blessing, not a curse Gadianton robbers
LDS doctrine holds that God organized our spirit bodies out of pre-existant intelligence. God can be thought of as the "master programmer" ,and our spirits are organized software objects. It has been speculated that the hybrid from BSG "Razor" was Daniel Graystone, because Graystone thought of the cylons as his children, and the hybrid said that his children believed that he was a god. Whether one is LDS or not, the BSG/Caprica mythology addresses some deep philosophical questions about the nature and personality of God.
