AI is like fire

This moment of AI advancement feels like what the discovery of fire was probably like. Fear on the one hand, and potential on the other. It also feels like what the invention of the wheel was probably like: Some people stared at it and scratched their heads, and others were out there on day 1 making wheelbarrows, neither side quite able to wrap their minds around what just happened. As far as future impact, both were a net-positive.
