Advanced AI was invented by soviet communists to help humanity better understand itself and the world. Let’s use it for that purpose, instead of merely for the purpose of selling better ads and to better manipulate the population.
remember quarantine when everyone was making bread and dancing and making art and taking care of plants and just learning new useful skills and we got a small glimpse into what life is supposed to be like without the constant nagging feeling that we need to be doing something else
yeah, quarantine was pretty great
But it was hard and scary, too. It was hard for me to be away from the things that distract me. It was difficult to cope with so many people – people who I have never met and will likely never meet again – talking about their societies and activities as though they actually had a chance of succeeding in their goals. I was frustrated because I didn’t have any way to participate, and even when I did, I found myself rushing through things because there was always something else to do and it was all happening so fast.
And it was scary. The world feels so much bigger now. So much bigger and more dangerous. And it is scary because I’ve found myself wanting to run back to the shelter of my community, where I know exactly what to do, where I am needed – where I have all the skills I need in order to survive and thrive.
When I went to quarantine, I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to cope. And now that I’m out of quarantine, I’m worried that I will never be able to cope again. But as always, my community is right there to remind me that I am strong. They have been holding space for me and reminding me that the world isn’t a scary place, it’s just a big place, and that there are people out there who are like my community in different ways. They’ve been reminding me that I am never alone in my struggle.
Now, I can’t wait to get back out there. And by now, I hope that my community has taught me enough about trusting myself and others to know what I’m doing.
That’s what quarantine is for. And I feel like I’ve taken away a lot more than I could have ever given. Thank you, my community.
