  • talk about like life after Google.

  • You call it Silicon Valley's nervous breakdown on you say that Google is not just a company, it's a system of the world's.

  • I think most people would agree it's ubiquitous, but they wouldn't see it the same way you do.

  • George, how can you explain what the premises of this, well, Google, I I call it Google Marxism.

  • And when you think about it, what was the real mistake?

  • Marks made the profound error of Marxism.

  • It was to believe that the Industrial Revolution was the kind of final human achievement that after the Industrial Revolution, the problem of abundance had been solved and the only and of production was of Consummated.

  • And the only issue politically was how to distribute the existing abundance.

  • And, uh, in other words, he believed that the industrial Revolution, all those looms and factories and railroads and all the inventions of that era were kind of a final thing and esque Aton, uh, and the Googles making the same error that Silicon Valley is devoted to a similar Marxist mistake.

  • It believes that machine learning, artificial intelligence, robotics, search engines, all of, um, biotech, all these breakthroughs of this era or kind of a final thing, and they're going toe create machines that you serve human minds and, uh, transcend human minds and all of this they're gonna be able to retire to of tropical beaches while, uh, Brennan Page and the Google people fly off with Elon Musk to nearby planets and the machine learning and artificial intelligence.

  • And Semin eights the universe with evermore powerful machines that leave human beings far behind.

  • And I think this is delusional belief, and it actually has consequences.

  • It results in Rhyl errors of policy and errors of of business strategy.

  • Is this because there's a big echo chamber in the Valley where people start toe, you know, drink their own Kool Aid and believe they are the masters of the universe and create their own destiny and drag us all along for the ride?

  • Is that what's happening there?

  • I think it it is.

  • It is a kind of delusional religion.

  • I think it's it really derives from the sort of bottom up theory that human beings are merely figments of evolution of the product of a purely random and meaningless process.

  • And, uh, engineers can reproduce far better minds than this random process that's believed to be the source of of human capabilities.

  • And so they imagine they can design a better mind.

  • And, uh, and I've been I just think this is a delusional belief and it results and, ah, whole industry focusing on replacing human beings rather than enhancing human beings.

  • And I think that's a losing strategy.

  • Human beings got to support this Silicon Valley venture, and, uh, if it's if it's not enhancing their capabilities and expanding their opportunities and improving their lives, they aren't going to support it.

  • And it's not gonna work because the factors, uh, the human mind is the paramount manifestation of intelligence in the universe, and and a I is is just, ah, a machine that, ah, uh, scarcely competes at all.
