AI in politics - seamlessness (General)

The thing about being seamless is that there's never really one moment where it happens. There are moments that add impetus, often barely noticed at the time, which will later contribute to a seismic event - but it's often in the soft-bang realm where things happen, then gradually swamps us.

Covid was a classic example - started out as this mysterious SARS-like disease in China - welled up - then we had the exponential spike hysteria (it's as high as those levels now, but hardly reported) - ended up as a humanity-altering lab-exit/cover-up op.

But what was the moment? Someone got infected in a risky experiment in Sep 2019? Or maybe Bruce Ivins style - a deliberate ploy from a The Science scientist?

Either way, it was a product of the ORG-culture that created the stage for those actors to act. It was as incremental as it was inevitable.

Plato's Cave is all about societal fake-imaging - so AI is a natural progression - a dangerous one - but playing the publicly projected image-game that has always existed.
