    Oh boy. Here it comes... OK, so let me predict a few steps ahead so folks will be forewarned as to what comes next. Current-generation AI has absolutely no grounding whatsoever. Once you embody an AI in a robot, you can use embodiment as a kind of numbskull-level grounding. "Is the cup on the table?" <robot looks at the table> "Yes, the cup is on the table." The sensors become the robot's "ground truth" and, in this way, the AI itself will seem to become grounded. In addition, embodiment will seem to give robots the ability to reason, especially physical reasoning and similar forms of reasoning (e.g. Euclidean geometrical reasoning). "What happens if the cup is pushed over the edge of the table?" <robot ponders briefly> "The cup will fall on the floor." YouTube AI reviewer Matthew Berman uses a basic physical reasoning question that asks the AI to solve the following problem: "Suppose a marble is placed on a table and a cup is placed upside down over the marble. Next, the cup is lifted from the table and placed into the microwave. Where is the marble?" Success-rate on this question is, I believe, 0% to-date, that includes GPT-4, Claude-3, Llama3, you-name-it. SOTA AI simply cannot perform basic physical reasoning that even a child can perform. While embodiment doesn't automatically solve this problem, you basically have to solve this problem on the path of enabling robots to move around in physical space. Thus, this problem is going to be solved (if nothing else, by brute-force in simulation), and this is going to add a second layer of "OoOoHhH AaAaHhH" to the rapidly approaching fully-embodied robotic AI humanoid (Figure-01, TeslaBot, whatever). These are the two biggest missing components in current-generation AI (grounding, and robust reasoning ability). If you thought the ChatGPT hype is bad -- the fanbois are already claiming that current-generation AI is literally the mind-of-God -- just wait till we have embodied AI robots. I cannot imagine a scenario in which this does not trigger the Apocalypse. I cannot imagine how the floodgates of idolatry will stand up against such cosmic-scale pressure. We will surely have people bowing down and physically worshiping these limping refrigerators in very short order.

    Never heard of Kolchack. Probably won't know most of these since it's a bit before my time. As a wee lad, I watched reruns of the Dukes of Hazzard. My favorite show was Knight Rider. I am just old enough that I saw the final season air live but the rest were all reruns. I also watched A-Team, Airwolf, Grizzly Adams, McGyver, etc. even though I didn't understand all of it. Oddly, I did follow and enjoy the Perry Mason reruns, even though much of the language was over my head. The Twilight Zone reruns were interesting but also creeped me out. My cartoons were He-Man, GI Joe, Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. My sister watched Care Bears and My Little Pony but I could never figure out what was even happening in those cartoons. By the time I was in my pre-teens, our family had decided to kill the TV (and I'm glad they did!) so I actually didn't watch most 90's TV until I became an adult and binged a few of the greats on DVD. I have watched some Big Bang Theory and a few other shows but, other than that, I don't watch TV. So I won't have a lot of input on this thread.

    It just struck me today that mass-surveillance is logically equivalent to King George's redcoats forcing American colonists to quarter them at bayonet-point: I do not consent to my phone spying on me, nor does any rational American. Our private companies, local and State governments do not consent to having their infrastructure used by the Federal government for the purposes of mass surveillance, except perhaps for a few jurisdictions which have been bribed with Federal money, or some companies which are not actually private but are mere fronts for the Federal agencies. While this "digital quartering of troops" is invisible, it is nonetheless real. The phone in my pocket may as well be an FBI agent sitting on my couch, writing down every word I speak. No consent was ever given for this invasion of my home, which is my private property. It is in direct violation of the 4th Amendment which is, as the name of the Constitution implies, constitutional. If the Federal government wishes to nakedly contradict its own Constitution, this is a de facto and de jure act of existential self-dissolution. Whereas King George's own government could not be dissolved by the American colonists, the Federal government can be dissolved outright by We The People, that is, by a cooperative act of the State legislatures. The Federal government itself has no remedy against such an act, which is why it has worked ceaselessly for these past 200 years, harnessing resources of an unimaginable magnitude, to the end of securing the seeming consent of the several State governments to the limitless rape and plunder of the American public through the betrayal of the Judases among us. The Federal government, no less than King George, has refused correction in its mad course of tyranny which is existentially opposed to its very own raison d'etre. A ceaseless stream of warnings has been sent from all but a minority of the States who are fully bought-in to the DC tyranny, explaining to the plutocrats there that they must change course or hazard utter ruination. Yet they refuse to change course even in the face of clear and concise explication of their errors, offered in humility and conscientious deference to their conditional authority. In this, they are more deranged than King George, and their tyranny more repugnant since that monarch was merely pursuing the ordinary business of government as he was used to conducting it throughout the British empire, however tyrannically, whereas the Federal government has as its sole reason for being the securing of our rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness, among others. We have had a civil war before and it failed to accomplish anything except the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of our best and brightest. We have tried arguments for secession and they have failed. But it is a mistake to suppose that these failures imply that the States are somehow the kept prisoners of the government in DC. Rather, the authority both to establish as well as to dissolve and re-establish a federal government, explicitly resides with We The People, and with us alone. This authority is expressed through those men among us whom we freely choose to represent us for this purpose. This is not a novel doctrine, nor can it be commented on in any way, shape or form by the Supreme Court since it is an existential question which resides beyond the scope of the Supreme Court who can only reasonably comment on matters within the jurisdiction of an existing federal government, not one which has been dissolved, nor even whether it can be dissolved. For this reason, it is nonsensical to wait for the matter to be resolved or ruled upon by the Supreme Court, whether Yay or Nay. Instead, WTP must simply come to a quorum on the question of whether the government in DC has indeed devolved into abject tyranny and whether its time has come to be abolished completely, and re-founded "on such principles and organizing its powers in such...

    Who cares. People with an agenda spout the most outrageously false things imaginable. This proves nothing. When I say it is unconstitutional on its face, what I am specifically pointing out is that judicial review on these specific points is completely irrelevant except as a matter of procedure. The unconstitutionality and inherent contradiction of "reasonable warrantless search" is obvious on its face. It makes as much sense as a square-circle, a dry-ocean or an honest fiat money. The other reasons under which searches can occur are (a) consent of the individual to be searched (or owner of the house, if a house), (b) the issuance of a warrant for arrest (since the individual will be searched upon being arrested), and (d) "exigent circumstances", meaning, the police believed a crime was ongoing or about to occur, or destruction of evidence of a crime, and so on. Even these carve-outs are playing with fire when it comes to the 4th Amendment and I can see no reason why any of them must be permitted to exist, particularly in the post-911 world. Since the tyrants are "playing to the edges of the box" they are given to play in, as Hayden put it, behaving like leashed dogs, then they must be treated like dogs and be leashed and punished accordingly. Since they insist on abusing the leash, then let them be chained to the stake. Let's impose the fullest possible meaning of the 4th Amendment. Let We The People "play to the edges of the box" for once, where the "box" in this case is the Constitution, you know, the supreme law of the land. Or maybe the Federales would like to deny that that is what the Constitution is. Which is fine by me. Their funeral.

    It absolutely follows. The entire purpose of requiring warrants is to ensure that the 4th Amendment is obeyed. Otherwise, the police can (and will) just make up any ol' yarn for why they "needed" to perform a search. It took 203 years for them to finally get a functioning bypass-switch installed to switch off the 4th Amendment. That bypass switch is FISA, Patriot Act, Military Commissions Act, etc. The legislation had been written in the decade prior to 9/11 and was basically just sitting on congressional desks, a dead, tyrannical bill that could never pass. Until 9/11 happened. Then it was all passed, and much more besides. "Warrantless search" is a contradiction of the Constitution on its face. No "constitutional scholarship" is required. If an "unusual execution" bill was passed permitting drawing-and-quartering as a method of execution, no scholarship would be required to understand the contradiction. It's a contradiction of the Constitution on its face.

    Just finished reading it. As Moicano said, everyone should read this. A casual reader can finish it in a couple of afternoons. If you're a fast reader or this is familiar ground, you can finish it in an afternoon. Excerpt from the last chapter: And now you understand why the globalists are pushing so hard for censorship. They cannot win the debate, and they have built the entire modern political order on the promise that they won't knee-cap people merely for disagreeing with them. Thus, their only option that doesn't involve removing the mask and showing themselves for the criminal network of thugs they truly are, is to censor all logical arguments that expose their lies. Chief among these are the Gospel, and Austrian economic theory...

    My unsolicited summary: A bird in the hand is worth any number of birds in the bush. Milei has actually shut down huge swathes of the Argentine government and fired tens of thousands of bureaucrats, and he is actually shutting down the Argentine Central Bank, etc. Theoretically, he might do a little better on this or that foreign policy position that affects me in absolutely no way whatsoever. The very fact that the Marxist globalists want me to be up in arms about the hypothetical birds in the bush which Milei could theoretically improve upon makes me value the bird in the hand all the more. Go get 'em, Milei!!
