I've been watching a few of these now... They are all so... Frustrating. Not the videos itself, but the powerlessness you're left aith afterward. I'm beginning to think that reflectibg on things and developing a deeper understanding of anything is/was a bad idea, and life would have been more succes...

There is a huge problem with religion in America and it's getting worse with all of the political polarization. It's this really concerning mix of fundamentalist religion and far right Republicanism (mixed with nationalism). The problem extends beyond this current devastating situation. I don't thi...

If you rub your eyeballs until geometric patterns emerge, that's because you're stimulating the ganglia in your retina, but without a particular signal, so all the neurons are firing - ganglia in the retina are interconnected and function as image sharpening kernels, they block or enhance neighbour...

Yes it's possible the artist is saying it was induced by mushrooms. But then again he is painting what he saw in the alternate reality/underworld (In Stranger Things they call it the "upside down"). Humans aren't the only organisms to make inspiring art under the influence. Here's a creat...

Well, it would be incredibly stupid, bad for environmental efforts, bad for working class people, women, poc, and lgtbtq+s. It will open up the place for polluting industry, tax evasion, and hey, texas can have its own stock exchange. So it would be great for some people who already are billionaires...

But beauty isn't solely in the eye of the beholder, there's also an environment that imprinted on the beholder to shape his taste, which includes the taste for authenticity, whether that exists or not becomes irrelevant, if it is only one of the subjective criteria applied in individual judgement. ...

The inflation of Kitsch and it's associated artforms appear to be linked to the ability to generate art on a mass scale hitherto unknown to the masses prior to the modern era. Music, visual art and even sensory art (we have venues that provide sensory rooms for smell and touch) have become both ent...

Do any other Aspie/ASD people prefer animated movies and shows over live-action ones? Personally, my love of animation originally stemmed out of my love for animals. As a very young child I was obsessed with horses specifically, so Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron was almost the only thing I would ...

Computers already generate art. Computers can be creative if you give the program scope. There's a treacherous similarity in yhe word art, denoting both capital A Art and functional or decorative imagery. I propose to separate these by calling them Art, Design, and Kitsch. The fields overlap, but A...

By that logic, what does it mean that Putin, in response to sanctions on banking, is now asking Europe to buy fossil fuels in Rubles - I mean, apart from the fact that it successfully held the Ruble afloat and prohibited the total inflationary collapse of the currency. Wouldn't the text imply that t...

... For a while now, I've been doing jobs designing for VR, commissioned by public institutions, and I'm doing my best to make them not awful, because it's taxpayer money and also I don't enjoy doing a mediocre job,in general. I have little personal interest in the stuff, but have the hardware floa...

What frustrates me about this is: humans like making music, and art. They don't like filling out tax forms. It looks like umemployed artists will be filling out tax forms, while computers make art, without the ability to enjoy it. So, as far as I'm concerned, the AI industry is already on the path ...

^^ That's a great interview, thanks for sharing. I've been prepared for AI music for a while, ever since Google made a doodle which would generate compositions in the style of Johann Sebastian Bach.
