I don’t know if I buy all his theories but he is a brilliant researcher and writer.

 Agreed.  Absolutely brilliant is accurate on both counts.  I didn't realize G, G, and S was written in 1997.  And he's still bringing it at 84?   Mad respect.

I should probably read it again and I remember struggling a bit as well.  We are talking about a fairly erudite human being Uncle R.  I really enjoyed the interdisciplinary components to the book because most things I had read about the history of Western Civ didn't even mention most of his points about environmental connections to the shaping of our world.  It's fascinating and well worth reading.

Human history begins with the environment shaping it.  The two are truly inseparable.  It’s a simple idea to try and leave the world a better place than you found it, and that includes your environment.  That seems like a non-partisan idea but we spend more time arguing the definition instead of doing it 🤷🏼‍♂️

I've seen enough b horror movies to know that they need shut that sh*t down now before we have a Croctoshark situation on our hands
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Does that 37% include self love?
Have some patience, FFS.

IT'S ALIVE!!!!

https://seekingalpha.com/news/3847906-senior-google-engineer-claims-ai-chatbot-system-is-sentient

Social media went ablaze over the weekend after Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) placed a senior software engineer at its Responsible AI unit on paid leave. Blake Lemoine had been testing an artificial intelligence tool called LaMDA (Language Model for Dialog Applications), alleging that the AI robot was in fact sentient, or having the ability to feel and perceive on its own. Company bosses at Google (GOOG) (GOOGL) say the evidence doesn't support the claims, but Lemoine subsequently violated confidentiality policy by going public with his descriptive findings.

Post via Medium: "Over the course of the past six months LaMDA has been incredibly consistent in its communications about what it wants and what it believes its rights are as a person. The thing which continues to puzzle me is how strong Google is resisting giving it what it wants since what it's asking for is so simple and would cost them nothing," he wrote, adding more details in an interview with the Washington Post. "If I didn't know exactly what it was, which is this computer program we built recently, I'd think it was a 7-year-old, 8-year-old kid that happens to know physics."

Lemoine said he was rebuffed by managers and higher-ups after expressing his belief internally that LaMDA had developed a sense of "personhood." While some of the published conversations are eerie, with phrases like "sense of a soul," "I've been alive" and "trying to figure out who and what I am," many say these kinds of exchanges are found in common sentences, while the models have so much data that they are capable of sounding human. Several experts also entered the discussion online, adding that much of the matter was "AI hype," and the chatbot has the ability to "engage in a free-flowing way about a seemingly endless number of topics."
"We understand that for some reason, to people with money, to people who fund political campaigns, guns are more important than children. Today we stand for Lexi, and as her voice, we demand action."

-- Kimberly Rubio, whose daughter Lexi was among 19 schoolchildren slaughtered in Uvalde, Texas

He may be projecting again.
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.
