We are being "inveigled" by our Deity Connections!! 5:4.4 (67.2) The domains of philosophy and art intervene between the nonreligious and the religious activities of the human self. Through art and philosophy the material-minded man is inveigled into the contemplation of the spiritual rea...

Riktare, Personally I have never gotten deeply involved with systems such as Eurorack, but I worked exclusively with sequencers in the early 90s, I was part of a team of three, two guys were working on the sequencer composing and my lot in life to try to "humanize" what they had done on th...

=; ...If you have a distinct and original vision and style, wouldn't it make sense to allow a machine to help and to generate similar ideas which you can evaluate and modify to suit what you feel is the essence of what you wish to explore and communicate? Definitely! That is what a multitrack recor...

Not an opinion...just a question: If, as according to the Papers, art is the creative expression of an artist only, or primarily, as the experience of the artistic expression during that 'creation' expression, then is anything at all invented by AI creative? Hmmm..... Is machine created sound actua...

So I'm starting a band called the Frandalanks. We write songs by request. And yes, we use loopers.

Wow. Every time I hear a story like this, where AI acheives some amazing feat in a flash - whether it is in art, in rephrasing concepts in the UB, or in music, like with your friend and his samba - I am amazed. But also I get a little niggling worry in the back of my mind that our machines are goin...

Thanks Riktare! Normally when I get a song it starts with just a line of lyric or melody and as I follow the thread it develops and sometimes (with songs I consider as "inspired") I am finished in 15 or 20 minutes! Other ideas I sit on for days or even years until the rest of the song come...

Hello Jim...I agree that that is a good article, and shows a step forward in modern thought. The article came acrosss my notice, too, just a few days ago. I like it so much I recommended it for our front page. So, you might see it there in the coming weeks, with some UB citations, like this one: 65...

100:2.7 (1096.4) Jesus portrayed the profound surety of the God-knowing mortal when he said: “To a God-knowing kingdom believer, what does it matter if all things earthly crash?” Temporal securities are vulnerable, but spiritual sureties are impregnable. When the flood tides of human adversity, self...

This article just popped up in my news ration and I love it when science gets closer to the truth. The Urantia Book tells the story of evolution in great detail but for science to admit that it isn't random seems to be a great step forward! https://www.earth.com/news/evolution-is-not-as-random-as-we...

It has hard to move forward in spirit progress or experiential wisdom while our mind is voluntarily poisoned by bad habits of thinking and a negative reality perspective based on disappointment and blame and resentments and anxieties and guilt and fear and anger - each and all of which retard progr...

Hi again redryder I don't know if I've always "loved" God, but as far as I can remember I have always wanted Him, I have always desired to know Him. I don't mean that to sound self-righteous. I can only remember back to the age of 4 when I consciously asked Jesus into my heart... I don't k...
