Hah! Point taken. The idea is eminently reasonable and most likely workable especially given, as you correctly point out, all of the necessary structures already exist. Call me a pessimist (please don’t call me religious) but I shouldn’t have said never gonna happen. I give it as good a chance as AI ever existing. Some would call those very good odds. They are in fact quite poor unless you plan to be around for the next 500 years or so. Also a quick aside, there is no such thing as machine learning, it is a logical contradiction. All that said if an AI is born/invented/discovered or one emerges it might portend the singularity which could very well lead to a system such as your proposal being implemented as all jobs would cease to exist and people would need to get money somehow I guess. After all my AI gardener isn’t going work for free and machine tuition is going to skyrocket once every single one of them can learn, a massive increase over the current level of zero.

Finally, the autism spectrum is a logical impossibility and therefore does not exist. To have a spectrum requires a minimum and a maximum value that are extreme opposites of each other such that all others can be compared relative to them. In this case the autism spectrum is said to go from most autistic (Differentist/most antisocial/least social) to least autistic (normalist/least antisocial, most social). This requires there to exist a most social/normal and most antisocial/different person. The definitions of both of those terms (normal/different) are not fixed and never can be therefore it is impossible for anyone or anything to be at a maximum or minimum value of them, therefore no comparisons to them or between them can be made, therefore the spectrum is a logical impossibility, therefore it does not exist. In contrast a spectrum can exist in the physical realm because the values at the extemes (minima/maxima) are fixed and unchanging. That is why the light spectrum does exist in contrast to the autism spectrum which does not and logically cannot.

Crazy right, or not crazy I guess, depending on your point of view. BTW, that is why I no longer go to doctors. Lol!

Keep up the good work brother.
