I believe it’s important to get rid of the old and start over with a fresh set of eyes. You have to give your mind a chance to think for itself. We are so quick to judge and criticize, so often we just don’t have a chance to think for ourselves.
In my opinion, it’s best to start off with a fresh set of eyes. Sure, you might not like what you see, but your eyes are the only ones that really matter. The rest of me is just a bunch of mushy mush that can’t think for itself and has to be directed by the most obvious of all things, video game characters.
Yeah, we’re pretty terrible at self-awareness. If we are even able to truly understand what others are thinking about us, we are probably going to be even worse at actually knowing what they are thinking about us. That’s why I think the best way to start off with a fresh set of eyes is to just start over with a fresh set of minds.
To start of a fresh set of eyes is to start by thinking for yourself. How far are we willing to go with our own knowledge that we know for sure? The very fact that you are reading this, asking the question, and even agreeing to answer it, means that you are thinking for yourself. You are putting yourself out there. Most of the time I am the one asking the questions and taking the risks of going with the flow.
The question is not whether I am willing to try different things, but how much do I want to. I am not going to stop exploring and experimenting with different ideas, but I am going to stop if I feel it isn’t worth it anymore. I want to make it worth my while.
What does this all mean? Well, what it means is that we are not as far from the end of the world as most of us think. We are talking about what I would call a “cognitive dissonance,” where you aren’t sure what to do but you don’t want to stop until you are sure you can’t do it anymore. I am willing to stop experimenting with different things until I have a better idea of what I want and what is worth it.
Now that we are more than halfway through the movie “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” I have been a fan of this movie since it started and have always been interested in the idea of an AI that could actually live in a world. After seeing the trailer, that idea became much more clear.
The idea of a living, thinking AI seems to be more and more interesting to us this week. We were recently introduced to the concept of the “intelligent agent” in the movie The Matrix and we’ve already seen the “Cobra” robot that goes around killing people. However, we would also like to see a sort of “real-world computer” that can think on its own, like a person.
While they don’t have to think for themselves they can still decide to react. Think of it this way: Imagine you’ve got a robot that you want to build a house for. You want the robot to build a house for you, but you also want it to be able to do some things that it’s not originally capable of doing.
They could be in the form of a computer we could call a “ba” (which stands for brain) that would learn to react to the world around it. The ba would also be able to think on its own, but the ba would still be able to decide to react. Some people think that this is a concept that should be considered as a possible future technology, but in reality, it is something that has already been attempted.
