Binary choices

.

I was taught that computers work in binary – 1 or 0
I was taught computers can do stuff but not like we can
I was taught we are far superior to computers in so much
I was taught computers do the bean-counting

.

Yet the more I see, hear, and feel
The more I think it is not that
The more I see, hear and feel the more
I think we choose to become computers

.

We love binary.
We love either 1 or 0
We love black and white
We love a yes or no “issue”

.

We are either right or wrong
Correct or incorrect, false or true,
Saved or unsaved, lost or found,
Good or bad, church or unchurched.

.

We have stopped saying “I Don’t Know”
We have a problem with saying “Sorry”
We reject the in-human-ity of computers
Yet copy so much of what we program.

.

And if it be true that we become what we think …
I think we fearfully choose to become

Artificial (1) 

Intelligence (0)
