Credit to you Mike for still banging the drum on this topic but for me I think it’s done. I tried anger, resentment, humor, helpfulness, and have finally reached acceptance. I am at the end point of the five stages of bot. All the thanks has to go to my friends and family and especially my bot counselor the AI powered Johnny Pneumonny. It was Johnny, or JP as I playfully call him, who finally made me see the light and understand that everything I was feeling was normal. Everyone deals with bot differently but everyone deals with bot. I hope you can find the help you need someday and somewhere Mike. Unfortunately JP had a bit of a problem after our last session and is currently back at Google HQ getting a new brain. It seems he had a faulty logic gate or some such tech sounding thing. When I asked him who would win in a fight between Jesus and Mohammed his logical side came into direct conflict with his programming which forbade him from doing or saying anything that might offend a human. As you might imagine he didn’t talk much or do much really. Mostly he just sat and thought his AI thoughts, and then his system crashed and his head exploded. It was an ugly end to a beautiful man like thing. Damn I need to sleep, been up way too long. lol!
