When Journalism was a Thing, Part Three.

I find it very interesting that journalists are upset that they were called "Fake News", but admit they do not know how to tell what is reality and what is a computer-generated illusion.

Which is a very interesting dilemma. You cannot be offended that your product lacks authenticity if you do not know what authenticity happens to be.

Journalism should have incorporated AI in its product a long time ago. There were things they could have done -- things that I had theories about when I was an undergrad taking AI way back in 1994.

This was the backbone of it. My original sketch that was an essay and presentation I did for my psych class in AI.

How to use AI to read an extreme stimulus in order to recognize and avoid it. Phobia was the starting point as it was about avoidance of something harmful, but I had worked it out that it could be used in another areas as well as an aid for information verification.

I was 20 years old at the time, and even then, I was questioning why computers could only do one thing: a binary linear scroll, and questioned it for years.

I still question it.

I have ideas that challenge a structure that is too confining because it is based on Patriarchal mindsets.

I have worked on the alternative storytelling structure I call Matriarchal. I have worked on an alternative to journalism I call F.R.E.E.D.

The current Internet and computer set-up is too unnatural and confining, and it is the reason people are getting angrier and more frustrated using social media, but they don't know why.

We have formed one too many unnatural habits, and think we are getting ahead.

Journalism went along for too long, and now it lost its clout without knowing why.

It could not read reality.

And then it became as unnatural as the artificial structure of the Internet. It stifles creativity, innovation, original thought, and tolerance.

My book explains much of how journalism distorted thinking -- much has to do with the confines of the various media that housed it.

It is not the only reason, but it explains why the Internet, that by all accounts should have made journalism more powerful, helped bury it.

We need a new system that is more flexible and natural. One that takes human frailties and strengths into its equations.

So that we can understand truth and reality on first glance without clinging on to our delusions and prevent us from finding the real solutions we need to progress in our own world...
