returning

death in its dream home
had a psalmic

odd-numbered

women. hell was empty

and we wrote

believed

        Sort of what they hope with AI. i’ve been interested in Larry Page of late. His hoarding of data, has a purpose: what i can gather, is that he thinks if a system has all the data available, it will in time start to make use of it by its own volition, like when they left Google AI running & without interference, it began to consider cats. All by itself. i am no tech geek, but lately, after reading Will Self’s Phone, i have begun to see tech as an important subject for consideration.
