#68 / Fighting For The Very Soul Of The World


The "Letters Live" website (just click that link) describes itself as follows: 

Welcome to Letters Live: A celebration of the enduring power of literary correspondence. We organise live events where remarkable letters are read by a diverse array of outstanding performers.

My invitation, today, is for you to click the link to the YouTube video found right at the top of this blog posting (or click right here). If you do, you will hear Stephen Fry read Nick Cave's letter about ChatGPT and human creativity. The reading takes about five minutes.

Fry is an English actor, broadcaster, comedian, director, narrator and writer. Cave is an Australian musician, writer and actor, known for his baritone voice and for fronting the rock band Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds,

Cave contends that Artificial Intelligence puts us in peril of losing the very "soul of the world."

He uses Biblical arguments. 

I think he's right!
