Li's Blog: A lot of change...a little space to stay the same?

A lot of change...a little space to stay the same?


Deer
Change, change...everywhere a change...isn't that a riff from a 1960s anthem?

Maybe the cultural, economic, societal, political changes that were erupting in the late 1960s are just now entering their fruition time?

Might be worth being a bit of an archeologist & digging around in that era.

Along with remarks such as "global village", we had Marshall McLuhan reminding us that "the medium is the message".

Is augmented reality the message of our time?

Artificial Intelligence is recreating our universe. Are we ready?

Recently, someone with more knowledge of AI than I have wondered aloud if the machines would think of us as pets or as pests. Such a question implies the machines are in charge.

Hmmm....pets or pests.

Meantime, I will stroll around our Village, stuck in 1974's timeline, and savour the people-centric flavour while it lasts.

Li,

Change is happening every moment whether we are willing to be aware or not aware of it. I look at it the same way as Alan Watts described it,

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.

Alan Watts.

Li- I do love gizmos and gadgets but am concerned about AI. I'll have to hold on to the quote that Ron and Alexandra Seigel mentioned!
