Not only does this waste-disposal engineer look human, but he seems acutely nervous and, as he is being tested, shows unmistakable fear. If Sartre’s distinction between manufactured items and humans is right, and if the humans depicted in the ﬁlm are right in claiming that there’s a di erence between replicant and human, then it should be a discernible di erence. If there isn’t a discernible di erence, then it isn’t clear why they should be subservient to human beings. In Blade Runner, the only way to test whether someone is a human or a replicant is by means of the Voigt-Kamp (V-K) test, which monitors emotional response by means of a subject’s involuntary iris ﬂuctuations, capillary dilation, and blush response.
He begins to experience the forlornness that Sartre describes. Living outside a replicant’s programming, he must create his own rules and continue existing on his own terms. Now he is free—but without any creator to rely on for direction. Tyrell can neither give him more life nor make him human. Batty Blade Runner and Sartre 31 must save himself. At the same time, he knows despair, for no one can rescue him from the death that he knows is drawing ever closer. He can’t count on anyone else. Yet it’s at this point that he would meet Sartre’s criteria for being human, for living in the human condition.
