I was recently discussing with a friend about music, electronic drums, and computer generated drum beats. He was telling me about how recently scientific study began to produce results indicating we do not like to hear a computer generated drum beat. Our ability to appreciate these drum beats had nothing to do with the natural sound, synthesized sound, or composition of the beat. The issue was the perfection.
People did not like the perfect beat.
They did not like how perfect it was.
How sterile the beat was.
People did not appreciate the inerrancy of the beat. I assume the beat was presented to the common person and they were given a double blind test to see which one they preferred.
However, is it not peculiar as we continue our way towards mimicking robots mimicking humans? Does it stand out to you how we continue to push closer to being more like robots and we push robots to be more like us?
Maybe, my goal should not be more like the robot. To live more like the robot sheriff of legal town. Should my goal to be more like who I am and continue to be me?
I think I should be a better version of myself. I should be a healthier version of me. I do not need to be a more perfect person. I need to be a more human person. I need to be who I am and be a better version of me every day. I do not need to be like the robot computer in the movies who decides what the law says and how to follow it. I need to be a better version of me every day.
Who are you trying to be? What does it look like to be a better version of you tomorrow?
