Re the future doesn’t need us

a reductionist person or machine may see humans as?

  • Generator of social network posts & files, in response to social network feed
  • Generator of financial transactions in response to an ads feed
  • Mover of cars & other physical objects in the real world
  • Generator of future humans

You can build machines that simulate & surpass humans in all of the above:

  • Generate even more social network posts & files, of greater value
  • Generate more financial transactions, once they start earning money
  • Move more cars & physical objects in the world
  • Even generate more future humans

So, at a certain point, real humans would be much less interesting in these respects than these machines.

Luckily, I’m not holding this reductionist view, as I feel great love & compassion to any real human, regardless of what he generates.
