Exactly.  In most all of the Golem stories, the automation that is the protector turns on the creator and it doesn't end well.  There is always a price to pay.  It is often seen as an acceptable abonomation.  

A Golem was created to serve a specific function. Once served, the Golem was then supposed to be 'decommissioned'.

I see no distinction of worth. Frankenstein was science fiction.
So was the Golem.

They are just different story arcs to carry along the same cautionary message about playing GOD. Whether by Magick or Science.

They are both examples of creatures who turn on their creator. Both have profound undertones and warnings in my book. Got a song for it. Go figger. Heh. Will keep that one for the music thread.
