How to disappear completely:
Do not begin to begin with
In keeping with this
Be sure to be
Your own worst enemy
A provocative concept, yes
Yet very effective

This is part [I] in an upcoming series, entitled ‘Dear Human’.
Its concept was inspired by an article forwarded to me from a friend where AI were attempting to learn how to effectively flirt like humans, composing flirtatious one liners with very humorous results.
It got me contemplating how AI would answer existential / hypothetical questions. How their answers would differ from our own, in attempting to answer “like” humans.
This prose series is written from the perspective of AI, at the intersection of technology and psychology. The answers can feel somewhat abstract or unnatural yet their perspective is both thought provoking and frightening, their depth no less prophetic or astounding.
