David Seymour is a member of the New Zealand Parliament who represents the Epsom constituency. He insists that he is a completely biological life form, not a holographic projection.
This became an issue because a citizen, known only as Zoe, submitted a request under the Official Information Act with the office of John Key, the Prime Minister of New Zealand. Zoe wanted the Queen's own Prime Minister to confirm that the MP from Epsom is not a hologram. Stuff reports:
Seymour says Key's staff contacted him on Tuesday afternoon about the request. "You'd think if you were going to create a person from scratch, you would've done a bit better."
Seymour offers to let anyone see him to personally confirm his physical existence. They may also touch him for $5 a person.
Unfortunately, we live in an age in which such narrow-mindedness is catered to. Is photonic life not real? Can we not let Photons Be Free?
