What if you could resurrect a loved one through artificial intelligence? Would you? Should you? Will AI ever reach the point where it is truly indistinguishable from the real thing? Does it feel? Does it have a spirit? And what does that say about who we are if in fact it does? Lots of heady ontological questions to ponder as we move into this new, and admittedly, frightening future.
And speaking of the nature of being and the spirit, can a robot priest absolve you of your sins?
What if everything you thought you knew about UFOs, aliens, and the secret space program was the product of an elaborate disinformation campaign? John discusses his research into what looks like another Mirage Men campaign to discredit the real investigation into advanced technology and what’s being dubbed, “the breakaway civilization.”
What are the ethics of conspiracy theory and why should we care? Are some topics “too soon” to discuss?
What were those mysterious flashing red lights at the White House this week? Russian Morse code? Or was it something far more prosaic. Hint: it’s the latter.
And, finally… another exciting episode of What’s the Word on the Street, Johnny, where John gets into what looks like a coordinated campaign to plug the dam of whistleblowers, leakers, and researchers exposing the high crimes and misdemeanors of the elite. Crowdsourcing the Seth Rich murder. But be careful, disinfo campaigns in full swing.
