01001010 (failing the turing test) – robot goes here lyrics

“i can no longer think what i want to think. my
thoughts have been replaced by moving images.”
(alexander duhamel, 1930)
we’ve seen half this country but it’s all been air-
conditioned, rolling by through tinted gl-ss.
// ever am i realizing how thickly the byte is in my
blood, crawling under my skin and digging like a
chigger. if i was a luddite, i’d have to learn to live
without myself. if i was a luddite, i’d try to destroy
myself. where will people like me fit into the world of
small is beautiful? //
just another place in my thought-sp-ce where the idea
goes down more easily than the instantiation.
i can talk the talk, yeah i can get excited, but if i’m
really honest with myself i’ll see that the times when
i am truly happy, when the excitement is bubbling and
overflowing, these times are few and far between and
happen almost exclusively alone with my computer in the
middle of the night.
// ever am i realizing how thickly the byte is in my
blood, crawling under my skin and digging like a
chigger. if i was a luddite, i’d have to learn to live
without myself. if i was a luddite, i’d try to destroy
myself. where will people like me fit in the world of
small is beautiful, yeah where will i fit in where will
i fit in //
i ask myself “what makes me truly happy?”, and the
half-answer i get are suspect.
i can’t tell how much is “i can make a convincing
argument for why this should make me happy”, and how
much is “this really makes me happy!”
what really makes me happy?
i’ve been working on a computer program to tell us what
is beautiful.
i think it’s time to pull the plug…
