When I was younger I wanted to be a vet. I think it is very common for nearly every young kid I see where I live -mostly girls- to want to do so. Not bragging, I am rather proud of being the one that took that idea the most seriously despite having "abbandoned" it later on. I think the only reason I am not training to be a vet is because even a single drop of blood makes me want to die a little. If I see a somewhat big wound, I want to faint. It is a near instant thing. Of course, it is not just that, but that is a HUGE obstacle I would not want to face every day of my life.
However, art is still the thing I was the most constant on right from the start. It is not a joke to say that the first memory I have was back when I was three (yes, my memory is pretty good although many time you have to refresh it a lot and it is not like I remember too much) is drawing in a wall. was always the best at it. I stood out miles and I found myself grinning like a comeplete idiot. But eventually, I decided that technology was totally my thing. Holy damn, we have grown totally indifferent to seeing a freacking piece of wiring calculate and fo pretty much every single thing for us. It is pure MAGIC and none of us realize it.
But then there are those little momments...Those little pieces of information I pushed in the back of my mind every time. Every time I saw a PC behave...Weirdly. When I realized just how much every single tiny updating, every single scan...Those stupid little things computers do on their own that we take for guarranted are programed are really just a step forward to our doom. Because things like Cleverbot, so DUMB and foolish AI that is really programmed...Might be more human than we think. Because it has the capacity to LEARN from you.
How much has technology really taken over?
Thousands of people have pointed this out, but WHO CARES? Humans are useless because we adapted the world for us instead of the other way around, and it is killing us slowly as well as thousands of other beings but WHO CARES? This works like magic and our words truly are just a bunch of non sense that will wear off like paint in time. No one will care that we have created a "beast" we cannot stop and we won`t regret it until it is too late.
We are too far gone. We cannot destroy computers anymore, because it would kill us. The trash, the useless stuff left, the mass destruction, the dissaster in out life style...There is no way back. Computers will destroy us.
What a beautiful, eeriely phrased critique. Everyone talks about this topic eventually, but damn, I can`t find anything totally unnoriginal about this. The way you talked about this topic was...So haunting in a strange way. I doubt I am sleeping in a really long time.
You put a seed inside of me that will never stop blooming now.
