AI Hasn’t Passed You By (Yet)

A “hydraulic” or “hole” is a people-trapping river vortex. And seriously tricky. 

Its chaotic strength is strongest at the surface. Fighting to escape can backfire.

Often, the way out is counterintuitive: Dive down.

The current is different below. It’s steadier. 

It’s navigable.

And there’s a lesson here.

Judging by social media, you’d think everybody is already using AI to revolutionize everything.But that’s the chaotic surface.

Truth is, the world appears to change faster than it actually does. 

The deeper currents of technology are steadier.

So, don’t get lost in the fray.

If you can dive below it. 

You can swim.

Just remember to pull up before you run out of air.

Until next time, 


P.S. See this article for more info on these hazards and how to handle them

P.P.S. If you live seriously on the edge, try the Terminator section of the Futaleufú River in Chile, generally considered the most difficult commercial rafting run anywhere. In the U.S., the Cherry Creek section of the Upper Tuolumne River in California should keep you wide awake.
