AI is dramatically over-hyped
I have an MSc in Computer Science and I approve of this message. Quantum computing is bullshit too btw.
Mikhail Dyakonov and Gil Kalai agrees on the infeasibility of quantum computing

AI (or nowadays, usually taken to mean ML) is quite another matter; but I agree that generalized AI is not practical currently

Well, fool me once at it goes. The bottom line for me regarding medicine that I've now looked into for about 15 years and discussed with doctors since I come from a family with lots of MDs, is that the basic theories around cholesterol/heart disease, cancer and contagion simply doesn't hold water, which in turn means that the treatments doesn't either. And the fundamental principle of medicine hasn't actually changed for centuries - By using poisons, we cure or prevent disease. Well that's not very reasonable. Especially if the fundamental view of what disease actually is, is also wrong. For example it's a fact that if we receive antibiotics, we will be relieved of a sore throat, but it's not self evident that this is something beneficial. What if the sore throat was a symptom of a detox that our body deemed necessary to perform and that the poison in shape of antibiotics merely caused the body to postpone this necessary detox in order to deal with this poison? There is support for this in that throat "infections" treated with antibiotics tend to be reoccurring.
In short I don't find reason to believe that anything that is toxic in high concentrations like fluoride or vitamin D is beneficial in lower dosages, and there's also the added risk of toxic buildup.
Check out "What really makes you ill?" by Lester & Parker on contagion and medicine, I think you will find your ideas given support
(also, "The Clot Thickens" by Malcolm Kendrick on heart disease; and "Tripping over the Truth" by Travis Christofferson on cancer)
Well, on Vitamin D, I think a distinction must be made between natural vitamin D (which is a hormone) vs. "Vitamin D" supplement which is something else.
On another note, I've found some resource I would like to share, but I don't want to make a post about them, so I reckon I will just leave it here in the chatbox
- YouTube channel IndustryHoax - exposes the faked deaths of various rappers and black celebrities

- Blog on the Isreal-Gaza war fakery, last updated in 2016 (might need Wayback Machine to access)
BTW, I wonder, is there a consensus/opinion here on Boston's dynamics?
Personally, I think their videos filmed indoors are partially faked (with wires), and the videos filmed outdoors are mostly fake (CGI)
