"Y Be AR? U Be A to Z!" - a short #essay

As I wrote the title to this photo-essay, my Pixel autocorrect turned Ar into At. This is why AI - that is to say machine pattern recognition - will never rival a ballsy human #arationality
. It is based on patterns from the past, the awfully ever so passed, in order to anticipate the future. Intuitive thinkers, meanwhile, anticipate and work with the future by starting from scratch each time. *That* is the difference between machine and human. A machine looks backwards always; a human - when happy, free and thriving in liberty - looks ever so forwards. Our intelligence at its best is expansionist. Machines only ever reduce.
And if you don't believe me, tell me this: when did a machine ever give up on a problem, frustrated as hell, and sleep off a hangover acquired out of sheer existential anger - only the following morning to wake up to the very best solution you ever did see to the most challenging problem you ever did fear? When did a machine ever forget an idea, a fabulous idea, a wondrous perfectly dreamed idea - only to recall it two weeks later in an even more fabulous iteration? And when did a machine ever just fuck itself silly with another beautiful soul in order that they might fully recover their thrive for life, lost only minutes earlier to intellectual despair?
