Will artificial intelligence be the end of authors and artists? Or will it foster a new era of creativity? Humans have been copying my work for decades. Now A.I. can do it better and faster. I share my thoughts and ask AI what it thinks.
I went on an archaeological dig uncovering the history of the Hopewell Native American Culture. The dig also dug up some memories of my great-grandmother and old childhood fear that I finally get to lay to rest.
