Deep Fake Kind of Like Lean Cake; It Ain’t.

If you don’t know what deep fake is it’s okay, because neither did I. However, a quick look at this video from Bloomberg on deep fake will get you up to speed:

Here’s another on Donald Duck, I mean Honorable Donald Trump, President of the United States:

The person you see in the video is an actor; that part should be obvious. In fact, if you are an American and didn’t notice that wasn’t the real Trump, I worry for you. Get some sleep, eat a good meal, check your prescription glasses, and maybe take a spa day.

You good? … Great! (You know I’m just kidding around; all my readers are geniuses).

Deep fake is the term used to refer when artificial intelligence, computer generated graphics, and/or a voice actor, comes together to create a personality. This personality is normally someone famous like former President Obama, or current President Trump.

If you read the comments on the Obama YouTube video you will see people stating this technology stemmed from our demand to see celebrities in pornographic material. The directors would artificially augment the pornographic actor’s face to portray a cinematic actor’s face, and etc., etc.

I just want to clarify that it is not porn that drives innovation, but sex. The want for sex comes from our need to survive, and our need to survive stems from our subconscious, and our subconscious stems from our genetic mutations over the course of history. Ironically, genetic mutations are causing are downfall; see cancer.

Survival can be achieved through two means: (1) leaving a legacy, landmark, or societal achievement/advancement; and/or (2) leaving offspring. Offspring who, when full grown, can leave a legacy, landmark, or societal achievement/advancement and/or, leave offspring.

The cycle is continuous until the end of our time, if ever.

Back to deep fake… I remember hearing about an Adobe event, a company known for it’s creative software apps, where they shared a program that could listen to a few words from any human being, and then create an algorithm using artificial intelligence that would allow anyone to pretend to be someone else.

For example: you answer a phone call and say, “hello, who is this?” The person who called could record your response, input it into the Adobe program, and then be able to manipulate your voice to say anything they wish it to. After showcasing this technology the company received much backlash and thereby ended up not commercially sharing this technology.

But, just because it isn’t commercially available doesn’t mean it no longer exists. Many believe that the next presidential election may have implementations of deep fake representing presidential candidates whether the candidates know about it or not. This technology could be used by news outlets and journalists within and outside America.

Journalists may be receiving sources they believe to be real, writing stories based upon these sources, and then releasing them to the general public. In turn, they would be unknowingly spreading false information that could damage all the parties mentioned within the story. The journalist could lose their job, but the effects of the story will ripple through regardless.

So, next time you watch something on a media platform; television, YouTube, iPhone, Samsung, etc., make sure you engage with the content with a critical eye, check other sources for inaccuracies and similarities, and proceed with caution.

There’s so many people in this world that many of them have lost touch of reality, and technology like deep fakes aren’t helping them come back to it. The best we can do is be strategic in our acquisition of truth, forgive ourselves when we make mistakes, and stay humble.

When Media Won’t Fade to Black.

When Media Won’t Fade to Black.

Minority owners in media are not being represented with fairness. First of all, the word “Minority” to define people of color is messed up. Why is skin color so important in America. It’s not just America, because I know in the Philippines skin color is important in media as well. If for some reason you happen to come upon the Filipino channel you’ll see that everyone is as pale as milk. I’m Filipino so I know this isn’t a super accurate portrayal of the country. Just look at my profile picture and you’ll see that I am brown like Norwegian wood.

Are there any other countries that put color on such a pedestal? Let me know in the comments below.

The FCC at one point was appointed to regulate the diversity and minority ownership of media companies, but this initiative has fell flat. It is known that the reports they produce are often late, unreliable, and incomplete.

However, we are slowly diversifying and its representation can be seen in media. Have you seen the Crazy Rich Asians movie? I haven’t seen it, but I heard it was good. Or have you seen the Black Panther movie? I haven’t seen it, but I heard it was good. I don’t go out much… and my favorite genre is Horror. I’m a horror nut; pistachio.

Still, the majority in power within the media conglomerates are white. I live near Hollywood and the nepotism is real. If you want to be in Hollywood you need to either have family or really good friends already working in Hollywood. The only way to make it into Hollywood is to have enough money to create your own movie. Anyone have a couple million dollars laying around? Can I borrow *cough* have $100,000.00? I’ll not, not, not pay you back.

An Improv Piece, Pills, and No Cheeseburgers.

An Improv Piece, Pills, and No Cheeseburgers.

# Mar 6, 2019 at 8:49 PM I dont understand some of this but I allow it to run.

The world is filled with life and the free write that I have is known as the thought process that allows you to continue to write and not stop as long as a thought goes through the brain the medulla oblongata will allow you to come up with creative primal instinctive revelations like the Bible has in its final chapter.

This technique that I am using was learned in a book I read a long time ago. I dont remember the title but it has a guy who directed and acted in theatre for a long time and talks about masks and hypnotism and improvisation for the theatre. The point is to create a stream of thought on paper to create content with the point of preventing writers block but the world does not cope with depression without external reality.

Pills are consumed on a daily basis because it connects our internal with the external and the external solidity really is just atoms that came in and out of our internal but triggers the realization that we our in existence with others because we are the others. What we dont do is what we do do, and yes I talk about poo poo. Waste is not doing anything and Presence is giving everything.

The trick though is that the solidity of the ingestion is only the realization of what is already inside of us. The pills don’t add to the chemicals that combust inside but simply give us the awareness of the chemicals that combust inside. We have all and we should know. Know, no. Know, Yes. Knowledge is power and power is energy and energy is light and light is life.

Filters can be limiting but they help with order because what you do not see is a stream, a wave, a continuous perplexity of the unknown clashing and crashing into infinite realities until the conscious decides to make it into existence. Thats when it becomes solid, a state of matter, an external bit of existence that follows the four dimensional apparatus that is our reality of existence. What of an ant? Does an ant have a conscience.

Does an ant decide what it believes to be right and wrong, or does it simply follow the electromagnetic fields that revolve through the atmosphere. Does it not have a free will? How about us? Do we have free will? Does the free will in us relate to the electric fields that is our brain. Does our brain trigger change in the electromagnetic field of waves that surround us. Does thought really have the power to change our fate, our environment, and in turn our reality?

You be the judge. Just like you always have done.

We’re All Walking Antennas.

We’re All Walking Antennas.

I made this in December 2018, but I finally got around to posting it. It was meant just for me and I decided that it was too funny to hide from the world. Then again, that could just be the narcissist in me. Either way… Enjoy!
