Me and my two bros we’re skateboarding around Seattle over the weekend. One of the most peculiar things I pointed out was the fact that the groups of people attending the Bumbershoot music festival literally all
1- Looked the same (each group of girls were dressed the same, had like 4 or 5 blonde white girls and 1 or 2 Asian friends)
2- They were walking in the same formation
3- All attending the same event
4- As I said before their outfits were almost all the same as if they had all gone to the same H&M outlet at the same time and bought exactly the same clothes.
It struck me as something i would normally see in a sci fi book, they looked pretty much pre programmed. They operated as directly as a computer would.
On top of that I could say something about almost anyone belonging or affiliating to any group. It’s like some of us are or can easily be labeled as AI and we literally operate on algorithms, void of independent cognizance, void of original expression (even those that try so hard to be edgy fit into an AI category)
this is isn’t even the first time I’ve thought of this.. I used to work at a ski resort and I literally had the belief that every single guest there (aside from the local rats) were products of an artificial environment. They all looked the same, had the same gear, said the same shit, showed up at the same time, to top it off they all drive the same cars, live in similar looking neighborhoods and homes (Upper middle class suburbanites usually are the ones I would consider to be AI)
whats your thoughts on the increasing number of people assimilating into full on AI.
