#thursdays_thought I have just finished shopping at the local grocery store and now face a new age, but increasingly more common choice of an automated till or a cashier. Now typically I side with the obvious choice of whichever is faster, but today the cashier line is empty and so are the automated tills. The choice comes down to the type of interaction that I prefer, a machine or a human being.
This provoked a thought of a previous conversation and topic that I have been contemplating recently and also added a dimension that I hadn't considered before. What will the effect of automation replacing human labour be on our world?
There is no shortage of speculation when it comes to this topic, but as it seems ever more present in my day to day life I am feeling compelled to learn more about what is actually taking place. So far it seems quite obvious that easily automated jobs will be taken over by machines. There will be jobs lost and new ones created in their place, to what extent is completely left to opinion. The new dimension of the topic I was considering is the futher isolation of human interactions that will be the result of using machines instead of humans. What sort of human psychological effect will this have? From what I understand human interaction is a vital part of our well being and happiness, so will this eventually lead to more isolation and depression in society?
For an interesting discussion on the subject check out the Sam Harris interview of future Presidential candidate Andrew Yang and his ideas of universal basic income to help battle the automation of jobs.

There are lots of things you can try to minimise the effects of jet lag, like adjusting your sleep patterns or drinking plenty of water but what makes the biggest difference is what you do physically, like yoga or a brisk walk, to re-adjust to a new rhythm.
Meeting someone from a past life usually feels #amazing, but sometimes, bad #memories or feelings could come up due to your past relationship together. Just be mindful of how you feel, and trust your intuition. Not all relationships last forever, and some of them teach us painful lessons. However, if you’ve met someone in a past life, it likely means you have unfinished business with them here on Earth. - powerofpositivity.com
