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 capable of performing certain actions within that reality. We are not creators – in the sense of originators – of reality. To think 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 that.

-Well said.
