  1. there is a difference between AGI and the internet Mr. Herzog, if it can dream is just a stupid question like the notion that it can not love.

  2. I have never thought of about that. The internet is us, humanity at its best and worst. Humans are capable of the best good and the worst. I want to hear what his thoughts about the show Black Mirror.

  3. His last point about Poetry makes me wonder-is poetry dead today? Art today doesn't seem to have the romantic poetic urge of the past-and maybe it's a good thing it doesn't.

  4. The interviewer just wanna follow the questions that he had prepared, he didn’t know something called follow up questions. When herzog brings out some interested points every single time. The interviewees again switch to another totally different topics. Jumpy questions with a Jumpy mind, the by products of todays world ?

  5. Answers – get me clappers number and Chris Wray and joe maguire and Gina – all of America's spies ! I want them ! I want their heads on a platter and to explain to America what and why they are doing what they are doing !!! Good luck ! This country is fed up with surveillance ! So good luck ! Can't say your protecting anyone ! Sorry that's not gonna work !

  6. My prediction for the future of humanity on the internet. Freedom of speech has become a great threat to powerful, unpopular ideologies. They can no longer get away without criticism. They can longer do as they please without scrutiny. These powers are now desperately trying to find a solution to this problem that is the freedom allowed to people by the internet. One way I believe in which these powers will deal with this problem in the future is by censorship and authoritarianism…and one way in which they will abuse people through authoritarianism in the future is I believe by making trolling illegal labelling anyone that expresses views that do not conform with their own or are a threat to their own as tolling. This is one way I believe in the future they will use to control people's opinions on the internet.
