Yet again, it’s simply not good enough to be a healthy, organic, living, breathing, feeling, caring, mistake-making human. Not in the marketplace, not in science and academia, not in the corporate world or big industry. Not in medicine, not in education, not even in the arts. AGI is showing us how small, slow, lumbering, and pathetic we are, and if we don’t address this “problem” it’s curtains, again, for civilization and the species.
You have no doubt heard of the classic paradox, of what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object. It seems quite evident that something akin to this is playing out on the world stage.
Our identity (idem, the same; identidem, repeatedly; we recreate ourselves as we perceive ourselves, until we do otherwise) and our individuality, or individuation (in-divisible expression of duality — quantified as the apparently physical, and the etheric, elemental, energetic, conscious constituents of which it is constructed) may be usefully encapsulated as a “person”.
There is much to complain about these days, isn’t there? Our Western society is rife with imbalances, violence, judgements, labels, polarity, superficiality, and spiritual disembodiment. One could almost call it conspiratorial in nature, as if some malevolent forces are at work to keep us discontented, disconnected, and dysfunctional.
I do hope that you get to swallow a few bitter pills regarding the things that you’ve felt certain about for so long, as some tenet—belief, opinion, dogma—that’s been believed and just held onto for centuries, or perhaps even millennia.
