frames from a movie that never existed

January 19, 2023
The NY Times on Using AI to create frames from Alejandro Jodorowsky's 1976 version of "Tron" a film that never existed.

This stuff is getting scary.

Also it mentioned Jodorowsky's influence: "the Greek-Armenian philosopher and mystic George Gurdjieff. He taught that we are born without a soul and that our task in life is to help our soul to grow and develop: Souls aren't born; they're earned."

Now, it's ALWAYS morally fraught to appoint yourself arbiter of which people have souls and who might not (a potential first step to giving your blessing to atrocities) But I do think whatever a soul is, it has to be embodied, even if it is potentially emergent rather than just being there.
