My co-hosts and I over at MindMatters had the pleasure recently of interviewing. You should check out his Substack . Head on over and subscribe.
We used his recent article below as a launching pad, which quickly took us into the stratospheric heights (and depths) of parapsychology and technodemonology.
Here it is on YouTube (audio here):
In just a short time, programs like ChatGPT and other chat bots have burst on the societal scene to the delight, fascination and enthrallment of millions. Individuals can now interact with a language program that is seemingly conversant on numerous subjects and provides "answers" via virtual brains. But this new powerful technology begs many more questions: What are these programs really, and how do they fit in with the development of AI? Where does anthropomorphic projection fit in as people become increasingly involved with them? Are these bots a first major step towards a transhuman reality? And can these technologies actually be forming the basis or entryway to a new type of technoreligion?
This week on Mindmatters we get to discuss these issues with Joe Allen, author of the Substack blog Singularity Weekly. After extensive research into this and related subject matter, Joe's nuanced analysis tells us that yes, we need to be paying serious attention to where all this has brought us, and where things are very likely going. Given how powerful and even seductive the use of these technologies are, he also suggests what may be the healthiest attitude or approach to interacting with them going forward. As if the world hasn't devolved into enough insanity there is, in fact, a new pathologizing influence to contend with. And we, 'legacy humans', ignore its profound influences at our own peril.

Yes, what people do not realize is they already have us in a panopticon style prison and don't plan on releasing us ever.
Their MO is increasing surveillance and herding us into 15 minute cities.
These cities will not be as advertised by the WEF. You will have nothing and you won't be happy.
Unless of course you are happy to have your mind permanently wired to the internet and your body loaded with biotechnology.
Any income you receive will be tied to a social credit score. Food will include insect protein and laboratory grown meats.
ChatGBT is nothing but a further attempt to reign in human imagination into the world prescribed by these new totalitarians who simply want unlimited resources and control - for themselves - not for you and me.
Either we take them and this infrastructure down or they continue to take ours. We have already proven we cannot handle this digital technology.
Funny I was just trying to figure out some stuff on my phone a couple days ago, stuff like how to tell if you’ve been blocked on fb or messenger for example and then what do 15m or 30m mean beside the friend’s photo or the green empty oval sign indicates what exactly. I’m not up to speed on all of the changes so I was looking for answers to my questions when Chat GPT appeared as one of the many choices that I could open the site for information specific to my typed in search. Chat GTP also filled a 15 minute segment a few days ago on a talk radio station we listen to sometimes but no dangers were mentioned and it was all positive except not going to be permissible for use in schools or universities because it can be used by a student who claims it is his own work when it’s actually chatGPT who provided the work and teachers and professors can get duped! There is speculation here that Trudeau goes to Chat GPT and asks it what shall I say in response to the allegations about my latest scandal and Chat GPT supplies Trudeau with an appropriate answer that is reflective of Trudeau’s Liberal leanings.
