What's real? What's not?
We live in a world where truth is often elusive, and reality is subjective. What we perceive as real may not necessarily be true, and what we believe to be true may not necessarily be accurate. Don't you think?
Our experiences, beliefs, and biases shape our perception of reality. We see the world through a lens that is colored by our own individual perspectives. What I see as real, you may see as an illusion. I mean, think about it. Nowadays, we are bombarded with information from a variety of sources. We're told what to believe, what's true, and what's not. We're told what to buy, what to wear, and what to think, huh? But how do we know what's real and what's not?
One way to discern what's real is to use our critical thinking skills. We must ask questions, gather evidence, and evaluate the presented information. We must be aware of our biases and open to new information that challenges our beliefs. Or we could use our own senses. We can trust what we see, hear, smell, taste, and touch.
And there are Generative AI and Large Language Models (LLM). With such technologies, the question of "what's real and what's not" takes on a new level of complexity. They are too compelling and realistic, almost blurring the line between what's real and not by creating new things that don't exist in the physical world. F**king scary, I know. From a technical standpoint, I think Generative AI has the potential to be a powerful tool for creativity and innovation. But such tools can easily deceive people's minds. If not used responsibly, people will lose the ability to think critically, and humanity will slowly become oblivion.
Ultimately, what's real and not is a matter of perspective. Reality is not fixed or static; rather, it's constantly changing and evolving. Well, to navigate this complex and ever-changing world, we must use our own discernment, senses, and critical thinking skills to determine what's real and not. And most importantly, being aware what's happening around us.
Well, now what?
