The Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Podcast: Conversations from the porch – Episode 23


  1. Hey Anna,

    Since you are making so much money, since you are here, you could go over to our Jack's substack, and donate a Benjamin a month?

    Our Jack managed a strip club, made sure the women got paid properly, stopped unwanted advances by customers, let the Women decide whom to sleep with, thought our Jack had it figured out.


  2. Artificial Intelligence is, as I wrote in my last piece, a misnomer. Our issue as mankind with A.I. is not that it exists, but that mankind's avenues of self understanding are insufficient.
    The so-called sentience issue with A.I. is at the crux of the dilemma. Science asserts that sentience is nothing more than electrical impulses in the brain. Religion quips that sentience is related to the inner battle of good vs evil. Neither can provide for mankind any useful perspective in the evaluation of A.I., largely because the upper eshalons of society are hell bent on replacing mankind, and failing that, zombifying the humanimal.
    It isn't grass roots society that is demanding a greater influx of technology designed to mimic and ultimately out do people. The funding for these endless projects does not derive from the paychecks of Starbucks employees, or Wall Mart drones that get their health insurance from public aid.
    Personally, I can discover no path by which the issue of A.I. is successfully addressed without the spiritual necessity, and that is most likely why A.I. remains a delimma today.
