The concept of West World(WW for short)is similar with Buddhism.
There's a concept in Buddhism, called "輪迴". It's a circulation of birth, live, death and being alive again in human beings. Memories will always be deleted in each time of circulation. And all of the life a man had once are called 前世. Buddhism believes every man has a lot of 前世.

Where human beings live is called"人間(the world of mortals)", and where we go after dead is called"煉獄(hill)".

In series, where robots be fixed and get clean up is like the hill of Buddhism, terrifying and bloody. Then they are alive again and again in the fake world without remembering anything.

They have been tortured many times so that they can become the one having ability to think consciously. Just like "修行" in Buddhism, a man must endure many types of difficulty so that they can "成佛".

To these robots, 成佛 is to become a human beings.
WW的概念類似佛教中的輪迴。輪迴指的是人類會不斷重複出生、生存、死亡、投胎的過程。每一次轉世投胎時記憶都會被消除,而那些被削除的記憶統稱為「前世」,佛教相信每個人都擁有眾多前世。

人類的世界叫做人間,鬼魂的世界叫做煉獄。

劇中,那些修理和清理機器人的地方就像佛教的煉獄,毛骨悚然又血腥的地方。他們在虛假的世界裡毫無記憶的活著。

機器人在遊樂園裡遭受無數次折磨,直到它們逐漸進化成有自我意識的機器人。這個過程就像在「修行」,一個凡人必須經歷各種苦難才得以成佛。

對機器人來說,成佛是成為一個凡人。
