Definition of AUTOMATON

1: a mechanism that is relatively self-operating; especially : robot
2: a machine or control mechanism designed to follow automatically a predetermined sequence of operations or respond to encoded instructions
3: an individual who acts in a mechanical fashion

As seen in its definition, an automaton reacts on behalf of its programming.  You can also see a causal link between the automaton and those who have power. (Action/Reaction, Cause and Effect)

 

"Technology and harmony,  control YOUR devices with a single remote....."  

In other words, that's you on the couch.

As the skin on the guys arm in the below advertisement from Verizon peels away, you can see what he really is, an anDROID robot.

Megadeth album: "Countdown To Extinction" (1992)

Symphony Of Destruction

[Mustaine]

You take a mortal man,
And put him in control
Watch him become a god
Watch peoples heads a'roll
A'roll...

[chorus:]
Just like the Pied Piper
Led rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes
Swaying to the Symphony ...
Of Destruction

Acting like a robot
Its metal brain corrodes
You try to take its pulse
Before the head explodes
Explodes...

[Chorus]
[Solo - Marty]

The earth starts to rumble
World powers fall
A'warring for the heavens
A peaceful man stands tall
Tall...

[Chorus]

An automaton's behavior is a direct reflection of its programming.   The effect of its programming reflects the purpose of its programmer.  Human behavior is destroying the planet at a break-neck pace.    Key word here is, "destroying".
