The dark side of making music.

I think a lot of people need to hear this.
I know I do, I know a few people in my life need to hear it, and I think now that AI is here, maybe even the people who think they already know this, need to be reminded of this.
The turtle moves!



It is an interesting video and has all the reasons I dumped music years ago, now I do it just for fun and do it just for myself really, I just enjoy the process of making something from nothing no matter how weird it (usually) is. Without the 'fun' element I doubt I'd bother.

Just have fun, anything else is a bonus


Yeah I think many of us have been in and out of these thoughts, but in the end of the day, sometimes we forget why we have come back, and of course some havent been in and out of those thoughts, but with AI pretending it can kill artists of all kinds, which is a thought that comes from a fundamental misunderstanding of why artists make art, I think it is important we all continue encouraging each other to create our art.
If you arent making music for yourself, and pretty much only for yourself, then you are probably going to fall into these mental traps... I know I do even though I am making my stuff for me, so even we who know why we do it can fall into the mental dark spots.
So we need to encourage each other, the last thing we need is a world where only AI makes things.

AI is powerful and very frightening, the other day on the TV News they showed a fake AI generated photo of an explosion of the Pentagon in the USA, It looked so real, if they hadn't said it was generated by AI, I would never have known. I realize this is not on topic about AI steeling music from artists, however it is another illustration of how scary AI is. Think about it, AI if left uncontrolled and unregulated could start a nuclear war by producing fake intelligence info causing countries like Iran, Russia, China and North Korea to launch nukes. And AI can steel copyrighted music and other multimedia content which puts many artists livelihoods at stake. When I think of AI I immediately think of Terminator 2: Judgement Day and the nuclear explosion seen in that movie, and then the theme music for T2 plays in my head. However the premise of the Terminator movies is that AI became self aware, this has not happened yet in real life. Right now as far as I am aware of, AI only does what people tell it to do. It seems to me that Elon musk is launching into orbit a net of satelites in the sky and it is called Starlink which to me sounds very similar to Skynet, he is also building AI robots and creating neural implants, it seems to me that these things are the beginning of something similar to Skynet, the only missing ingredient is for AI to become self aware. Elon Musk says Starlink is just for Internet, I am not sure that I believe him, maybe that is his plan, the thing is, is that when Starlink is complete and up and running, someone such as AI could hack it and use it for evil by turning it into Skynet, using it to control everything including AI Robots around the world. I think worrying about AI steeling our music and other artistic creations is the least of our worries when it comes to AI.

I do not wish to scare people but below are some YouTube videos on AI, AI Robots, Starlink, Tesla and military AI soldiers, I am not posting these links to scare people, I am posting them so people will understand why I am saying these things. These YouTube videos are just videos people posted on YouTube about Telsa, AI, AI Robots, Starlink and military AI robots, they are food for thought.
