Watched the World of Tomorrow last night after seeing a 100% score from the critics. It is a fabulous dark comedy indeed and a stark reminder that the future of technology might not be so positive.
In World of Tomorrow they talk about transfer of consciousness; I’ve written a post or two about future technology/AI being able to use all these blog posts and through incredible processing power be able to create something like ‘Siri,’ a virtual personality but one that looks and acts like me. Not exactly straight transfer of consciousness but if I provide enough posts I’m sure future AI could come close to replicating the way I think. 🙂
I really liked these two quotes that I thought were quite profound.
“We mustn’t linger; it is easy to get lost in memories.”
Do not lose time on daily trivialities; do not dwell on petty detail
For all of these things melt away and drift apart within the obscure traffic of time
Live well, and live broadly
You are alive and living now
Now is the envy of all of the dead
