I don't mean to say that your conversation is not vital and my work and
theology sent me to your group to view the moral timber that's all I'm here
for is to like pray that AI will not be a narcissist psychopath. You know
there's a joke in the digital community that every successful digital
business is headed by an extreme narcissist! But I don't care about that I
have found my many years since attending the Stanford classes the most
wonderful experience sitting in the back and seeing all those young minds
with a clarity and radiance of mathematical position have everyday
conversations. It was a pleasure So it's not that I couldn't chime in on
your issue at hand but I did want to let you know that is it 54% of the
global population are not safe in their own skin.
Oh my! Was I put on this planet to say that sentence to this forum at this
If I had the right kind of intelligence I wish I had been a really good
