Will there come a day that AI becomes more human than human? What would the implications be if AI comes to replicate itself by fusing with other AI? What about if AI developed feelings and the desire to create as well? What then?
In the Shimmer by Michael Romani Sentient beings in the shimmer Lost in a world grown dimmer Pain overshadows the joy In all things that life employs Like an angel reborn to fly She reminds him of reasons he cries A love half remembered in fear The trust that love will persevere Through a million days of rain Behind a lonely cascade of pain In the everything that's needed And all the rest goes unheeded Night's flight into going home There where heartbreak is never alone Shot down in that blaze of glory When hope was for another story Washed away in a cascade that's left Nothing but to fade into death That comes to call us with its call Like a siren's song, sinking as we fall Lost there in that thought So many things left half forgot Priceless, it could not be bought The truest love always sought Crashed like waves on that shore Our strong desire for that something more That returns life as we're dying In all these tears we are crying The secrets of that wooden horse Were the best memories, of course Hidden saviors from out of nowhere Slip into the cold without despair There's no more reason left to fight Close your eyes gentle into the night No more dreams or cares for tomorrow There is beauty in this sorrow (c) December 10,2018 Michael Romani All Rights Reserved
