    Obnoxious interviewer, but a lot of clues dropped in this interview about what we can expect from OpenAI and The Agenda:

    This is it, folks, it has finally leaped the final hurdle... laziness...

    Since 2016 when AlphaGo beat Lee Sedol, the world's highest-ranked Go player at that time, I've been trying to warn people: this is coming faster than you think. The arrival of ChatGPT made it much easier for me to explain what I mean by that. Even I was taken by surprise by ChatGPT as I underestimated just how much of the structure of thought is encoded in language itself. It's difficult to exaggerate how unprepared the public is for this, and the socio-political implications are going to turn out to be greater than almost anyone talks about.

    Notice that these machines do not have an easily-accessible safety-off switch. There should be an easily-reachable, highly-visible red-button to instantly freeze the machine in place and hard-switch off its computer. But the people who are behind The Agenda do not think of themselves as being capable of making mistakes. Read the previous sentence again: they do not think of themselves as being capable of making mistakes. So when they build a robot, obviously, the robot is going to be safe. And there is no conceivable scenario in which they are wrong about that. Because they're gods in their own estimation.

    I will warn again: this aspect of technology is changing faster than you probably believe it is, even after adjusting your expectations based on ChatGPT. The vast majority of tech-observers are repeatedly underestimating how fast changes are occurring in this space; despite my obsession with this space, I myself have been taken by surprise twice, once by AlphaGo and again by ChatGPT. At this point, I think it is bonkers to assume that full-range-of-motion, AGI humanoids are not just around the corner, think Sonny from I, Robot. Given this particular demo video, I would say we are 12 months away from a public launch of one of these devices or, at the very least, an announcement of a large-scale corporate lease program. On the robotic side of things, we are in what AI safety-researchers call a FOOM scenario.

    None of these are photographs:











    In fact, in many ways, they're better than photographs. "Every image a cover-photo." That is the future. The reason I am highlighting this is that a lot of people are relying on the SCOTUS definition of porn -- "I know it when I see it" -- in order to distinguish REAL from FAKE. Well, what happens when the FAKE is suddenly better than the REAL? May I suggest that's when you get Clown World? People are not yet understanding just how far behind the curve they really are. We are chasing a couple hundred flipped ballots in Podunk, Arizona, as though this is how the Beast World Order operates. Sure, there's something to be said for catching the crooks on camera, but the problem is much, much bigger than that. Between ChatGPT, Stable-Diffusion, Teslabots, and the emerging hyper-tech which has befallen us practically overnight, it's time for people to realize just how fake the FAKE news really is. It's not just a little bit fake, it's completely FAKE. Think: whole wars that never really happened, or natural disasters that really happened but were never published in any news outlet, anywhere. This is the kind of future we have been dragged into. It's not future-tense anymore, it's fait accompli. NOW is the time to WAKE UP. First, you have to wake yourself up. Read the signs! "Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door." (Matt. 24:32,33) Next, wake up others. Finally, KEEP WATCH.

    Shower-thought: GPT3.5+ LLMs make everyone significantly better at their long-developed core competency, and a little bit better at everything else, as well. LLMs make everyone able to do ONE thing a lot better, and able to do EVERYTHING at least somewhat. Only a Marxist can flip the script on the tide lifting all boats into a story about how "humanity is obsolete now". When will these insufferable demons be silenced? Why do they continue to be given free rein to rampage over the globe wreaking devastation everywhere they go? How can it possibly be made any clearer what is actually at stake here??

    AI is already officially going into hype phase, IMO... :eyeroll



    This is the ultimate example of Starbuckization. If you look at a typical shop in a modern mall, the design elements in their logo, brand, store-front, labeling, product line-up, etc. is objectively good. These design elements are based on solid principles of aesthetics, placement, framing, and so on, that artists, branding experts, etc. are taught in school. However, when your eye passes over many of these shops quickly, even though each one is "unique", they very quickly begin to all seem somehow "the same". This "sameness" is what mathematicians call parameterization. Parameterization is when you fix a definite set of variable parameters -- typically real numbers -- each of which can be independently varied between some minimum and maximum. Once you have a parameterized model, every specific sample from that model can be specified by the setting of the parameters. Think of game characters with configurable options like height, hair-color, etc. Once the game designers have fixed the code for generating these characters, choosing the exact same set of parameters will always result in exactly the same character being generated. The human brain is extremely sensitive to this kind of parameterization which is why even games with objectively very large parameter spaces, such as No Man's Sky, still fall victim to this "It's all different, but in exactly the same way"-phenomenon.

    The point in this is that the human mind is much more powerful than merely being able to recognize good design patterns. Yet, from the functional standpoint of commercial product marketing, this is the only part of the human mind that actually matters -- whatever turns your head and convinces you to buy the Blue product instead of the identical, but differently labeled, Red product. Rather, the human mind functions on the agentic, purposive and symbolic levels -- we are social beings with our own goals, who understand interact with the goals of others, in a broad symbolic environment. There is no way to aggrandize current-generation AI products to being able to "replace humans" without first lobotomizing the definition of what it means to be human. If the word "coffee" merely means to you a Grande Latte from the Starbucks Drive-Thru, you are superficial (certainly in respect to your appreciation for coffee). And those who have this 2-dimensional mindset towards all products and services (the typical American consumer) are all-round superficial people. The street-term is "Basic". These are Basic people. Nothing wrong with being Basic, but when you try to drive all nails to the same Basic level in the mad pursuit of global Marxism, you don't get whatever you think "equality" means, you get slavery.

    The primary effect of current-generation AI is not to grant superpowers, but to make everyone uniform. And being uniform is not a superpower. We are in the AI singularity but even a singularity can have hype...
