A.I.
Good
or bad?
Human
nature,
good or
bad.?
Both!
A.I.
will change
the world.
Humanity’s
conflicts
raging still.
For many,
“The ends
justify
the means”.
History
shows
humanity’s
lust for
power.
Utilizing
all available
tools,
weapons
to attain
such.
Weaponizing
for chosen
results.
As with
the “bomb”,
one actor
rules the
world.
Same with
A.I.
Boundaries
pushed to
attain
dominance.
Control!
Human
nature.
Same
as it’s
always
been.
For some,
the lust
for
power
knows no
bounds.

back
again.
Short

thinking.
Victories
had.
Push
to extremes.
Then back
again.
Up then
down.
Left then
right.
Upheaval.
Over and
over.
Human
nature
playing
out.
Civilization
teeters
as a
result.
Maturity
needed.
Compromise.
Not us
versus
them.
Enlightenment
required!
The
middle way,
is the
way.
