Comment of the Week
“Lab grown meat, fully autonomous self driving vehicles, robot dogs, AI (or AGI) – it’s all hype. We forget that we are an aspect of reality able to perform certain actions within that reality. We are not creators – in the sense of originators – of reality. Thinking we are would be like a robot in a car factory thinking it could become CEO. There are levels to things, and we are not above nature or outside of it. We are one with it.“
