Am I the only one that’s noticing some synchronicity here?
Definitely, my favorite Substack letter packed with topics I love!
I really enjoy diving deep into the consciouness pool and our human triggers towards it. That perspective of Chat GPT, the mind and consciouness is so relevant. It's funny because it may give us a tangible testing blueprint of how we and the mind function on a micro level?
As always a needed read!
“It became very clear that stillness was the requisite condition for these types of epiphanies, AHAs, and connections to come through.”
It’s almost like the cheat code that the key to experiencing more is to do less.
This is easier said than done, though.
"Probably not. However, I think this tool has the potential to allow us to deepen our understanding of unfamiliar viewpoints in more accessible, low-risk environment if we choose to seek it out." - this to me showcases exactly why I use ChatGPT in the first place. To have discussions about philosophical topics, to build upon knowledge, and interests, while incorporating viewpoints I might not have come across otherwise. Of course, practical stuff as well - meal planning has never been this easy, hehe. Blessings.
I've had a similar sense, that both consciousness and technology are entering this concurrent state of transcendence. If it was just one of these aspects it would still be remarkable; but this simultaneous shift in both is cause to really take notice about what is happening for us. I really believe it's not just a technological singularity we are entering but an evolutionary one, where all things are on the cusp of transforming for us. Maybe I'm getting off topic. :) I agree that your question-posing technique is incredibly powerful. Open-ended questions unlock the subconscious in my opinion. Although, truth be told, I really think it is the higher aspect of ourselves, willing to inform and guide us if we simply tap that source of understanding. It's such a simple practice yet largely ignored.
Scott, An interesting take on AI, new and fresh. Thanks, D
Great piece man! Interesting times ahead. I am not an AI doomsday-er, but I think Sam Altman is the last person I want in charge of this...his interview on Lex left me concerned. Strikes me as entitled, arrogant & captured by a certain ideology. I hope I'm wrong.
This is also an interesting article
Thanks for the mind stretch this morning!
Love your take. Especially, when it comes to the unconscious impacting our behaviour. Reading the collective unconscious from Jung where he talks about this in length. Powerful stuff.
This is an interesting article from a slightly different perspective.
