What AI Cannot Do

Genius is defined as the unrestricted flow of creative potential through a person. We align with our genius and cultivate the container for our genius to express. We are conduits for innate intelligence of our macro-ecosystems to flourish in life.
As an artist channels truth through medium
So too, we are tasks with removing the distortions of self from the river of life that we are.
AI is the artifact aggregator of what has been created. The act of assembly is the amplification of minimal human input to generate output. In this framing, AI, especially generative AI currently leading the boom in cultural attention, is merely a compression of time between inspiration and output.
I see the current maturity of AI tooling as the catalyst for our current boom in cultural renaissance. The time requirements to inject artist content into all our work is exponentially compressing. The outputs of our culture are now unlocked like never before.
I believe most human industries will rapidly condense into forms of prompt engineering and we will achieve success through the merit of our inputs and the precision of our words in prompting algorithmically assisted constructions of art and technology.
Now, more than ever, we must act in alignment with our genius.
The cost of deploying these technologies outside of our realm of genius, is momentum towards dissonance. In short, were I to prompt AI to generate urban design frameworks for traffic flow patterns in cities; I would likely produce outputs inconsiderate of key tenants of urban design. Therefore, the expert and credentialed urban design is better positioned to prompt AI toward optimal outputs. Yes, I can populate a portfolio of automated drop shipping businesses, pages of blog content, and some attention grabbing artwork. But still, my output will fall short of those whose genius has been aligned in this area long enough to acquire the wisdom of these fields. Therefore, my rapidly produced, AI assisted content will be objectively lesser than the content of a domain expert leveraging the same tools.
And so, the alignment of our creative potential with our genius becomes ever more important. We align, train, and generate. The training of self through discipline is how we calibrate our ability to wield language and launch our AI tools towards the best trajectory of content generation.
Schooling has over-valued grades above knowledge acquisition. This is the justification for cheating on exams vs studying, becoming, and diagnosing progress. I hope that AI tools will refocus the importance of true personal and professional development towards truly becoming the expression of our genius in the world. Thereby, repositioning knowledge over ‘grades.’
The person behind the AI matters.
I am here to help others become the person they are here to be.
And then to equip others with the tools to construct systems of contribution delivery of their truth to those who are better as a result of interacting with it.
AI can be the infrastructure that connects us to one another.
Or it can be the tool to dilute the marketplace with noise that distances us from our community and increases inaccessibility to status in a domain.
Remember to seek clarity and quality.
AI cannot do this.
AI cannot replace us.
It can merely enhance what we already are.
Seek to become more.
"Don't wish it was easier, wish you were better. Don't wish for less problems, wish for more skills. Don't wish for less challenges, wish for more wisdom. The major value in life is not what you get. The major value in life is what you become. Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become." ~ Jim Rohn
We are at the birth of a new cultural rennaisance.
See our potential.
