In this paper, I engage in a deep wonder at the apparent animacy of robot technology. I elucidate on the nature of movement in living organisms, and how this movement is different from the movement of robots. Through the illustration of the Umwelt of a single-celled protozoan and a robot lawnmower, I identify fundamental differences in the purpose behind their movements.
