Writing a faithful future

Try as you may, but the world won’t bend to your preferences. You can’t slow down the pace of technology and revert to a world of analog.

The tide of AI is coming faster than you think; you will have to use your unique human creativity and abstract thinking to work with robots at your disposal. People will be managers of the future, coming up with ideas that the machines will execute on their behalf.

Society may put more trust in machines than individuals over time, but it’ll be short-lasting. Faith tempts to fizzle amid the ascendancy of cyborgs.

As B.F. Skinner wrote in 1969: “The real question is not whether machines think but whether men do.”

Right now humans write the future, for better and for worse, a kind of blissful tragedy.

When everyone and everything is conscious automata, no one will be quite sure what faith even is. Reckless, the candle burns at both ends.
