"If we pass our artistic knowledge to machines what will remain of our humanity?" My normal inclination is to jest that "humanity will eventually wane, consumed by it's self-imposed internet sequestration, only to be replaced by self-replicating machines. Those machines will help that waning, since some of them will be f*ck-bots and people will prefer them to the real thing because it`s less stressful."
Seriously, the greatest library system the planet has ever seen is used for You-Tube and 4-chn.
The truth is: The best of us use 25% of our power at our life time peak. We are infants. We will grow past this stage of "Borat," "Jack-Ass" and "Sarah Palin."
It won`t be painless. Between here and there will be child augmentation protests and labor riots against automation.
