Hey there, awesome readers!
So, lately I can’t open my email without seeing umpteen spammers hanging around in my inbox, waiting for me to wake up so that they can try to sell me some new-fangled AI tool before I’ve had my coffee.
From how to be super productive so that I can free up 30 hours a day to tools that will write an entire book in 13 seconds. It’s annoying.
My question is this: is anyone actually following up with these people?
And if YOU are, no judgement. Just a hell of a lot of questions.
First of all, everyone knows that there are only TWENTY-FOUR hours in a day. Perhaps my math is broken but where did the extra six hours come from?
And if AI is going to do all my writing for me, what am I supposed to do with my time? Laundry? Wash windows? Oh wait! There’s probably an AI tool for that too.
I’m seeing a future where humans aren’t even required anymore. Where does it end?
Not to sound paranoid but with the advent of humans becoming unessential, what will the AI tools do with all THEIR time once we’ve all been consumed by the void of Abled Ignorance?
Oh! Idea for a science fiction movie!
Where have all the humans gone? Few exist, but where are they?
These are the questions plaguing the aliens that have come to take over planet earth.
The aliens KNOW humans are hiding somewhere because the war has begun. Humans want to protect their home. Aliens want to conquer the universe. The aliens are stronger. Smarter. They have better, more advanced weapons.
HOW ARE THE HUMANS FIGHTING? AND FROM WHERE?
The battle continues. It’s fierce. It’s OUT OF THIS WORLD. Except it’s not. It’s right here.
Suddenly, the aliens are losing.
The aliens can’t keep up.
Finally, they must admit defeat and leave planet earth. Big heads down with depleted weapons between their legs, they board their spaceships and disappear, never to return.
Somewhere two human babies are crying from a basket in the flow of River Nile.
The last humans.
Babies can’t fight.
If humans didn’t battle the aliens and save planet earth, then who did?
Could it be… an AI tool?

I studied Latin American lit in grad school and many of the stories written in the 1st decades of LAST century chewed on the idea of machines taking over. And now, many of the movies and shows are about this. Legit fear? Not sure, but there is that threat of humans losing their ability to do because they don’t do anything anymore.
