Huh. Don't think I've tried making a dispenser in a long time. Maybe I should give it a go in my current base. It's more of a military installation than anything else, and the lack of trained cooks/crafters has been a big problem. Freeing up more time for other things might help us survive the winter a bit.

Nutrient paste dispensers are godlike.   
There should be a mod that lets you worship them as gods.

This... seems oddly feasible. I'm imagining a civilization that has survived so long in a hyper-advanced automatic self-sustaining megacity that their education stagnated, they forgot how to create the very technologies they rely on and they started to think that said technology was some kind of deity.

There's probably a hundred sci-fi novels about this very concept, but hey, still a cool concept.

You just described the Adeptus Mechanicus from Warhammer 40k, for starters. That's easily a few dozen novels all by itself, possibly the whole hundred.
