This is based on the ideas and writings of futurist author Ray Kurzweil, who writes about AI (artificial intelligence) and its place in human society. Kurzweil suggests that the AI machines will "embody human qualities, claim to be human, and we will believe them." Kurzweil's voice opens the beginning of the song.
Kurzweil's book Spiritual Machines is where the band got the name for this album. The book was suggested by then guitarist Mike Turner.

Christopher from Miami, Flan amazing song, from an ambitious well done album. this is my favorite song off the album, and is performed amazingly on the our lady peace "live" dvd, check it out and you will see what i mean.
Max from Toronto, CanadaLots of people say this song and the entire album it is on was a mistake by Our Lady Peace. I thought that though the album was indeed a step away from the ordinary, it was very artistic and fraught with meaning. The song itself is very well sung and can at times be very emotional.
Stephens Stills played timbales on the Bee Gees hit, "You Should Be Dancing." He was in the next door studio laying down a Crosby, Stills and Nash album and could hear Saturday Night Fever being recorded. Stills recognized its potential to be a monster hit and he wanted to contribute.
Originally a chart-topper for Steve Lawrence in 1962 chart-topper, "Go Away Little Girl," became the first song of the rock era to be taken to #1 by two different artists when Donny Osmond's cover version also reached the summit in 1971.
