    I just listened to this podcast and I SO wanted to be part of the conversation. Totally interesting and fascinating! For every revolution there is a counter revolution (I do not know that empirically, I’m just making a case for my thought.). I predict that many years after AI changes our society, there will be a counter revolution of the most earthy, human, homemade, handmade, wabi sabi, dirty, grungy kind. It will become cool to be human in all of the most earthy, humble, natural, ways we can be it. (Think of the Agent wiping the sweat off of Morpheus’ head in utter disgust.) It will be very wabi sabi like, maybe kind of hippie – at least that’s how I imagine it. It won’t be until the AI revolution has long been established. If people try it too soon, it won’t have the traction that will really rocket it into high culture. Just an idea. I’ll probably be dead or very old by the time it happens. That is what this episode made me think of in addition to the fact that I am so down with getting to know ChatGPT. Also, I totally echo Antonia’s thoughts about Data, Knowledge, Wisdom. Things that are ancient are full of wisdom. That will play into my imaginary counter revolution as well.

      So, after thinking about the comment I, myself, made above I would like to reform the idea a bit and since I cannot edit my original comment, I am making a new one. (As an ENTJ, when I get excited about something, I get a little bit silly, and have to mitigate my embarrassment with amusement and, sometimes, clarification.) In thinking about it further, it doesn’t make sense that there will be a physical counterrevolution unless along with AI in the future we create a sterile-ish, mechanistic society to go along with the AI (think George Jetson and Rosie the Robot.). It makes more sense that the shift will be mental, philosophical, emotional, etc. A renaissance of ancient knowledge and wisdom. The best part is that, at that point, it will seem “new” again. “We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.” T.S. Elliot. The best part is, this sort of turning over has all happened before in different clothing. No matter our levels of achievement, nor the changes in the structure of our society, I do not think we will change what mankind is (not that anyone is necessarily making that claim, although some might be.). I have been playing around with the ChatGPT for the last couple of days and it is really fun! It’s nice to find a way to “play.” That’s what it feels like – play and discovery. Thank you for the podcast, and so many of the pod casts before. I have learned SO much from you guys and it is changing my life significantly. I’m super grateful.

    My personality type (ISFP) is probably not the most typical type that would be interested in this sort of thing, but I am extremely curious to try this out. My mom is actually the first one who told me about this type of technology (I’m not exactly sure where she heard about it). She’s an INFP so I’m guessing it intrigues her Ne side?
    Anyway she was showing me all these things online for the chatbot, and how it can answer all these questions almost like an actual person would. My mom and I both want to try it out. I imagine my dad (INTJ) might want to try it out too.
    I just want to try it to see for myself if it’s actually as impressive as it sounds. That’s probably my Se talking. I need to “see it to believe it” I guess lol. I am super curious though.

    By the way, I didn’t realize you guys got pushback from the Generation episode! I posted a comment on that episode, but I haven’t checked back to see any other comments since then. If it’s any consolation, I really enjoyed the episode about generational theory. I thought it was really fascinating!

    You had me at “having a whole bunch of employees but you don’t have to deal with them.”

    • Joel Mark Witt

      Hi Kimberly. That’s the most INTJ thing I’ve read all day. Thanks for the comment.
