Yeah, there is definitely something about 4chan and other, much more obscure websites than the former. Maybe included is this one too given the rise of the fujoshi and femboy lovers and the absolute decline of femcels in the entire Internet in a short amount of time; this being, of course, sort of appearing in the normalfag surface as there was that one tiktok trend on femboys, an overall explosion of women being kpop fans (especially in Latin America
), and certain feminist websites having an obsession with cute boys now such as r/FDS, as if there was some kind of motive to make women reproduce out of desperation of the declining birthrates worldwide.
However, some points in that post can be easily argued against like 'algorithmic fiction.'
Like OP in that thread said, it is true that normalfaggotry media is AI generated, which its greatest example is Dead Koontz and Amazon. However, original thought is also alongside the normalfag trash in places where a good degree of intellect is neccesary; an example of such are places like DARPA, the majority of the Internet that is in university campuses, and obscure literary fiction publishers and translations. Especially for the second as a proof, there is a good reason why university library-hosted books in their physical form as so expensive and over 50 bucks. This is because it is made by real people rather than AI, as seen by the difference in prices on genre fiction written by 'writers' sponspored by Amazon originals. This latter point is one of the most concerning for me since this implies that, if we go by this rate, high quality original human thought is going to be more expensive over time.
And if we ever want a piece of that, it is very unlikely that you will not get access to it unless you're part of a particular elite.
On another point, we are definitely more advanced than we think, but most content is restricted because it is unknown on what could happen if certain things were released. An example of such an experiment is VR since it is pretty fucking obvious that this has been used for decades:>https://killscreen.com/versions/ataris-secret-vr-experiments-of-the-1980s/
Yet, it was not fully released yet because it needed to improve, and also the creators of this technology obviously thought beforehand about the possibilities of human-computer interactios like porn usage?.
Nevertheless, it is definitely a fact that tech people like Zuckerberg were former 4channers. But who knows about people older than him like, say, Bill Gates?
Could imageboards be older than we thought?
