Artificial Intelligence, Change and the Future!

Oh boi, my favourite topic at the moment, NOT. Hm let’s see, do I hate A.I, no I don’t. Having said that I think the world is moving too fast for people to comprehend, or for me to comprehend. Firstly, what will we do when A.I take our jobs? Well nobody seems to care, I don’t understand why they don’t. Most of the jobs that are going to be replaced are low skill jobs. So it means if you want a job in the future you have to go back to university and do something that is guaranteed to keep you occupied and earning a living when the A.I take over. It’s funny because people are walking about the streets and watching movies about these things but they still believe they’re above it all. Maybe they think that they’ll start a blog, or be trained to do another job. I’m sorry to burst your bubble but companies are looking for ways to reduce expenses not increase them. And starting a blog is so hard, trust me I know. So why are people not being proactive about it. Do they think their bills will be automatically paid, no, robots are expensive, it’s not like we’ll wake up one day and they’ll be all over the place tending to our needs. No it’s going to be a long process that takes years. So in the meantime what will you be doing, living off a pathetic pension? We should wake up and deal with the facts that A.I is coming whether we like it or not and we have to plan ahead because the government is only going to do so much for us.

At the same time people should be making themselves heard. Companies want to use A.I for almost everything but how many people really care about the way the future is going to turn out? Yes A.I is going to be helpful but how much of this A.I do we need in our lives? I see people making decisions for me that quite frankly I wouldn’t have made in my right mind. What happens when A.I systems are driving our cars, telling us what to do and when to do it. What sort of world will that be? Will I have the opportunity to think for myself or is everything going to be A.I controlled? People say it’s inevitable but is it really? We have a choice as to how the future turns out. I am all for change but only if both the pros and cons are put to the light. How do they hope to deal with the cons of having A.I systems in our lives or is it just something they hope to ignore until it’s too late.

Our world is changing. Companies are trying to create robots to reduce their expenses and workload instead of investing in pressing matters such as environmental changes. Why can we not concentrate on the environment for a second because if we don’t there won’t be any companies to use the robots in the future the way this world is going environmentally. People in Africa and other places don’t have water or food, why not create machines to help with that? Yeah sure Africans need to be more ambitious but they still need help to get to where First-World countries are. We are surrounded by a lot of water yet we suffer with thirst. Polar bears are going extinct, yeah they’re just animals but they’re not the only ones. One day they’ll be gone, and then it will be us, because if we cannot find the brain to start saving our planet now, what will make it different in the future? What if it will be too late? They talk about going to inhabit other planets but how many people would actually afford that luxury, then next thing you know it’s Elysium, only in real life.

People are just stuck in their routines and not taking part in this life. I do that sometimes and it’s really pathetic. We forget we’re part of a big universe. Environmental changes are affecting our whole earth not just the southern hemisphere. We might not see it readily but our world is changing. What are we going to do about it? What sort of future are we building because so far it doesn’t seem impressive. Yes we have the coolest gadgets but what’s the point of Siri if someone out there is starving and thirsty? Think about that, our world needs us and we have to make a stand.

Why I think Asexuals are going at it the wrong way!

I only got to know about asexuality a few years ago. I actually think one of my friends is asexual but you know why it never was clear because I was stereotyping him. Stereotypes are never good to use, yes some are true but it still takes away the individuality of that person. Okay so the reason why I am writing this is because I think I am a sexual human being because that’s how I feel most of the time. Asexuals from what I understand never feel sexual towards another human. They have feelings but not sexual feelings. They are just nonexistent. I will probably regret saying this but they’re like robots when it comes to sexual emotions like arousal and attraction. So this is what I understand from it. They are people who prefer deep meaningful friendships with, is it safe to say, one special human. I mean from what I understand they have plenty of friendships but there’s just that one soul friend for them?

So why did I say asexuals are going at it the wrong way. When I first read about it, it literally gave me a headache. I had thousands of questions and no to answer them. I did not understand how people could not feel sexually, like did they not have feelings at al or was it a choice, so…many questions I tell you. Luckily when I read, I read to understand. So I eventually sort of got my head around it and my brain relaxed. Most people┬álike me only know there to be sexualilty. So when some random person we don’t know comes into our lives and tells us they don’t feel anything sexual our alarm bell goes off in our heads. If a person we are close to or love says the same thing that alarm goes off again. The truth is it’s not easy to digest, there are more and more things sprouting in this world that are difficult to digest. So why not make it easier to digest, the LGBT community did. They made it clear that they are still humans only they like people of the same-sex. There’s nothing wrong with them, they just like people of the same sex. There’s nothing wrong with asexuals they prefer friendship over sex.

The truth is almost every marriage gets to a point where sex doesn’t matter anymore but it’s just being with that special someone. So you see, when you put things in a way that are easy to understand you have a world filled with harmony and acceptance. Yes everyone likes being different but that doesn’t mean we should be so messy about it. People appreciate things they can relate to, and the good thing is, you haven’t lied about any single thing you just rephrased it to be understood better. Once you’re understood it’s easier to come out, you embrace it and own it. No one is blindsided or overlooked because they are given the choice. Would I give up my sexuality for an asexual I loved to the moon and back,yeah definitely and I’m sure I’m not the only one, sure it won’t be everyone but that’s life, live it. Everyone is a unique individual and free to be who they truly are. What more can you want?
